My friend Yana (immortalized here) first spotted this on Dangerous Minds and shared it on Facebook, where I saw it, prompting me to want to share it here. Then EV Grieve spotted it and shared it on his Facebook page. By this point, then, it might be fair to surmise that anyone that might be interested has seen it, but whatever …. I’m putting it here, too.
Check out the Dangerous Minds original post for more, but here is the inimitable Iggy Pop in 1988 being interviewed for French television in New York City. Any Iggy interview footage is always going to be entertaining, but what made this eligible for placement here is the footage of the great man galavanting around Union Square. I can’t say I can name the bar/restaurant he’s depicted being interviewed in. Can you?
A little while after this, Ig would largely abandon this comparatively “clean-cut” look, and go back to a more conventional RAWK aesthetic for the Instinct album, albeit to no great effect.
