watch Jim Jarmusch & Iggy Pop talk for two hours (at last night’s NY “TimesTalk”)
In the new documentary film “Gimme Danger,” director Jim Jarmusch chronicles the story of one of the greatest rock–n–roll bands of all time —The Stooges. Join the award–winning indie director and rock icon Iggy Pop to hear more about “Gimme Danger,” which opened to acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival, and discover the story of The Stooges, their adventures and misadventures and their long–lasting legacy. Interviewed by The New York Times culture reporter Melena Ryzik.
Watch last night's Times Talk above. SPOILER ALERT: Iggy Pop is a fan of Girlpool, Tinariwen, US Girls, Prefuse 73, Gold Panda, Perfume Genius ("wow"), Death Grips, Destruction Unit, Jherek Bischoff, Vince Staples, Kamasi Washington and Sleaford Mods (his favorite group!). Jarmusch introduces Iggy to new music including The Sadies and Boris. Jarmusch also mentioned that he himself (not surprisingly) listens to a large variety of music including Run the Jewels, Kendrick Lamar, and Toronto duo Nadja. Young Thug didn't get a mention.
