Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album.
Artist Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life.
Michael & Chris return with their winning double act, this time to focus on The Stooges. Art band, dangerous junkies, party band, proto-punks, the future of rock n roll, revolutionaries, little brothers of the MC5, talentless copyists of The Rolling Stones? The Stooges burnt with white light and white heat, leaving a trail of wreckage and chaos and still somehow Iggy Pop survived to tell the tale.
