Gone but not forgotten

Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Thurston Moore and Jim Sclavunos - all together on the same song ('Nobody's City' by The Gun Club)?! Blimey. It's testament to the cult status of Gun Club founder, the late Jeffrey Lee Pierce. The track appears on a tribute album called Axels & Sockets also featuring Mark Lanegan, Lydia Lunch, Pierce's former bandmate Kid Congo Powers and assorted associates of Cave (Warren Ellis, Mick Harvey and James Johnston), among others. Certainly worthy of investigation, though perhaps I should invest in the originals - starting with Fire Of Love - first...
