Rock’s prominent figures join together for a project. Iggy Pop, coined as grandfather of Punk, sits in a black suit and and a white open shirt, resembling a lizard who is uncomfortable to be wearing any clothes at all. Josh Homme, (QOTSA) wears a strict black suit with a red handkerchief and red socks. Classic! They announce to the the man on the tele, The Late show with Stephen Colbert they just released a new album together titled “Post Pop Depression” and they are going to be debuting a song Gardenia later on.
First impression of their live performance together. As anything Josh Homme produces it starts off with a super catchy riff, led by a bass guitar and an instrumentation of a full band which compared to Iggy Pop’s usual basic punk set up seemed to have a lot of sound, but when Iggy starts singing it all starts to make sense. That deep voice with a hint of of late David Bowie and Nick Cave it was the voice that David Bowie produced out of Iggy on the Lust for a Life record back in 77′.
The chorus goes:
All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight?
Who is Gardenia is hard to tell but it doesn’t matter, since Josh Homme and Iggy Pop intertwine this word play with music perfectly. Definitely looking forward to the whole album.
