Iggy Pop: In my system

Iggy Pop: In my system — See what this artist is listening to, including Tom Waits’ ”Bone Machine,” Nick Cave & the Bad Seads’ ”Henry’s Dream,” and more

Posted on

Iggy Pop puts out a new album next month but finds ”most records released today to be unworthy dross. I buy them because I want to know what’s around, but I never finish them. You can rip off my 10 bucks, but I won’t sit still while you bore me.”

· Tom Waits Bone Machine
For ”a sense of personality, and the beauty of the melodies.”

· Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Henry’s Dream
”Cave actually writes memorable tunes.”

· Various Artists Gnawa Music of Marrakesh
”An excellent North African recording from Bill Laswell’s Axiom label. He only records what he wants to and therefore makes records worth listening to.”
