"For me it makes perfect sense for Iggy Pop to be the subject of a life class; his body is central to an understanding of rock music and its place within American culture. His body has witnessed much and should be documented."
Artist Jeremy Deller on Iggy Pop's, er, revealing latest project.
On a related note, here's the man himself appearing (fully clothed, thankfully) on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to perform 'Gardenia' from Post Pop Depression, his collaboration with Josh Homme. Alongside Homme on musical duties for live performances are Dean Fertita (QOTSA/The Dead Weather), Troy Van Leeuwen (QOTSA), Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Zwan) and Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys). It's not the most arresting of tracks, but it does have a pleasantly nagging quality that works away at you - and it also has a bit of a Bowie feel to it too.
