A double album of Stooges songs covered by Australian bands like Hard Ons , Celibate Rifles , Exploding White Mice , Feedtime , Harem Scarem , God and others. Released on the Au-Go-Go label at a time in Australian rock when it seemed that every rock band played either "T.V.Eye","Search and Destroy"or "I Wanna Be Your Dog".
Those that are represent something of the range of influence that the Stooges have had on Oz rock'n'roll . There are 21 different interpretations of the Stooges music contained on this double lp . Some are frenzied, some polished, some faithfull, some wildly extrapolatory . All reflect the excitement that the Stooges continue to generate . For all the sweat and blood of those named, the man himself, at the height of the punk movement when his significance was paramount , was far from boastful . In an interview with Tony Parsons in 1977 , despite being tickled with the Pistols' reading of "No fun" , Iggy rejected the notion that he had countless I.O.U.'s to collect. "They don't owe me nothing" he said of the movement of the day . Proclaimed the king , without even adjusting his crown: "I did it all for myself". Hard to beat indeed ! ( M Engleheart)
