Movie Of The Week
This week's featured film is Gimme Danger, a rock-doc dedicated to Iggy Pop.
Directed by Jim Jarmusch, the documentary presents the context of The Stooges' emergence. The Stooges' powerful and aggressive style of rock 'n' roll blew a crater in the musical landscape of the late 1960s. Assaulting audiences with a blend of rock, blues, R&B, and free jazz, the band planted the seeds for what would be called punk and alternative rock in the decades that followed.
