The Rapture

So we played a few shows over the weekend. We hadn’t played shows for a long time and it felt GREAT! We really wanna thank everyone that came out. [below] is a clip of House of Jealous Lovers at the Prada Store from last Thursday.

On our way down to Jersey and Baltimore we had a lot of great music to listen to. One of the albums was The Idiot by Iggy Pop. I hadn’t listened to this album for quite a while and I forgot how amazing it is. It was his first solo album and was produced by David Bowie, along with his second solo album, Lust for Life. It got us all talking in the van about what a cool motherfucker Iggy Pop is and what an amazing career he’s had (actually that part was mainly me ranting in the van and everyone else kinda listening) We were talking about some of the amazing bands that he played with and videos of different performances over the years. Harris who is playing bass with us mentioned a video I’d never seen that was Iggy playing on the Dinah Shore Show in 1977 (which was the roughly the equivalent of todays Martha Stewart Show). It features David Bowie and one of my all time favorite rhythm sections, the Sales Brothers. – The Rapture

Wyld Stallyns aka The Rapture played a show at Matchless on Thursday (9/17) (one week after the Prada store show). More pictures from that Brooklyn show, with the above-mentioned videos, below…
