Iggy Pop • Lust For Life • Live in Manchester • 25th September 1977

Download videos:

Lust for Life is a track originally from the Iggy Pop album, Lust for Life released on the 29th of August, 1977. Most of the footage used here was shot about a month later, for So it Goes; a British TV music show. So it Goes was presented by Factory Records founder, Tony Wilson and shown on Granada Television between 1976 and 1977. So it Goes specialised in showcasing the punk rock scene of the day. Manchester was the ninth date of the Lust for Life tour. The tour had started in Iggy's then home city of Berlin on September the 12th and it would finish up two months later on the 18th of November at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. The musicians on the Lust for Life album had been The Idiot touring band of: Tony Sales - bass, Hunt Sales - drums, Ricky Gardiner - guitar, David Bowie - keyboard and backing vocals. Plus Carlos Alomar - guitar. However, by the time of the Lust for Life tour, Bowie and Gardner were gone, replaced by Bowie's former lead guitarist from the Station to Station tour, Stacy Heydon, and multi-instrumentalist, Scott Thurston, on guitar, piano, synthesizer, harmonica.Stacy Heydon, on how he came to be chosen for the Lust for Life tour "Iggy accompanied us throughout the Station to Station tour. He and Dave were best mates. I was approached by Jimmy. No doubt Dave gave his blessing". Scott Thurston had already been a member of the 1973 - 74 live incarnation of The Stooges, and he had played on the Kill City material in 1975. Stacy Heydon talking about the tour with Iggy: "The people in Manchester were among the best. Being mostly of English dissent I felt very much at home throughout the country. Jimmy was and is quite the entertainer. On countless occasions he would be sharing his extensive knowledge on things like French impressionists, psychology, various political systems, specific museum pieces and the like. Two steps later as soon as we’d taken the stage all bets were off. Being on tour with Mr Osterburg was not for the faint of heart but it did open my eyes to the immense wit and chameleon like qualities that he could extract from his psyche at will, and was the very fabric of his being. That said, whichever side of the cloth you happened to be with at any given time seemed to be the antithesis of the other. If it’s true that opposites attract, that little fucker must love himself as much as we all do!"The material shot for So it Goes was shown on British TV about a month after the live show on the 30th of October. Part of The Passenger was shown, a short interview with Iggy, and at the end of the show, part of Lust for Life, with credits played before the end of the song. Unfortunately, this broadcast led to the early demise of So it Goes. As John Cooper Clark states on his narration on “Anarchy in Manchester”, “Unfortunately for So it Goes, his (Iggy’s) noble onstage savagery led to the shows cancelation in late ’77. That FY appendage didn’t do it for Granada’s top brass.” And so the planned third series of So it Goes never happened. __________________This recreation of Lust For Life is from 10+ sources. No footage could be found for the first minute and a half of the track, so I used footage from another European date on the tour (possibly Amsterdam). It’s not a perfect match - Iggy is wearing different clothing and the venue and audience are obviously different, but better that than a blank screen or omitting a large chuck of the track, I think. A sixteen minute version of this video Iggy Pop • Live in Manchester • So it Goes • 25th September 1977is available on my Vimeo channel: In addition to Lust For Life, it contains a complete version of The Passenger and additional interview material with Iggy.Been dabbling with this project for many months. It's still not right, but until it's uploaded, it's a distraction from future projects. Now I can forget it, and move on.Hope you dig it!_______________I am grateful to Easy Action for providing the audio track and allowing me to use it on this video.

And thanks for the interview snippet at the end Nacho. God, is there anything more sexy than Iggy speaking in his deep baritone voice (apart from Bowie speaking in his deep baritone voice).
Thank you

I'll see him perform this year in London. I'm so lucky. I mean. He's been around forever now and it's a miracle he is still so fit!
