HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE ARE ALREADY SAYING ABOUT RE-LICKED:

"An avalanche of raw riffs… and Williamson playing white-knuckled leads like he absolutely refuses to let the Stooges’ music go gentle into that good night." - PREMIER GUITAR

“Unsurprisingly brilliant.” - NME

"'I Gotta Right,' the second single from Re-Licked, is a manic, guitar-blazing rocker featuring belter Lisa Kekaula of The Bellrays." - USA TODAY

“James Williamson’s aggressive guitar style may be the most influential in punk.” - NPR’s WORLD CAFE

"… hard-charging, fast-paced punk" - EXCLAIM!

"... a karmic correction" - Author/journalist HARVEY KUBERNIK

“James Williamson is on a mission. Revitalized after a reunion with The Stooges and further stoked by interest in his career he has been working hard on keeping The Stooges beating heart alive. Iggy may be having a break from this thing called rock and roll but James is having none of it. The results... a new album of re-recorded songs from the catalogue of Iggy Pop and James Williamson. Songs that never made it into the studio, some known from live shows, some not. Re-Licked is kicking itself out of the garage with an intent to seek and destroy all naysayers, and along for the ride are some very special guest stars.” – ARTROCKER

“... gruff and propulsive” - CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

“Properly recorded and no longer mired in sub-bootleg mire, the songs do indeed shine through.” - BUCKETFULL OF BRAINS

“James Williamson closes the loop of The Stooges’ past legend in the best possible way.” - ROCK ON MAGAZINE / SPAIN

“Thankfully, there isn't a single note on Re-Licked that was phoned in. Every person involved in this momentous release clearly grasped the importance of the work being presented…. gearing up to be the Album of the Year.” - music critic JOEL GAUSTON

“…the ‘Great Lost Stooges’ album of 1974.” - OUT MAGAZINE

“Re-Licked has enough energy, fine playing and (deep breath) convincing vocals to present as something unique in the canon of Stooge-inspired music. Get it.” - I-94 BAR

THE STOOGES' GUITAR LEGEND'S NEW SOLO ALBUM "RE-LICKED" OUT OCTOBER 29TH ON VINYL, CD & DIGITAL!

ALONG WITH THE LIVE TOURING VERSION OF THE STOOGES, JAMES IS JOINED ON "RE-LICKED" BY A NUMBER OF GREAT GUEST VOCALISTS RE-INTERPRETING LESSER-KNOWN STOOGES RARITIES

While on a break from touring this year, the members of the live touring version of The Stooges (James Williamson, Steve Mackay, Mike Watt & drummer Toby Dammit) got together and recorded songs that were originally penned by Iggy Pop and James Williamson in 1973/74 as the follow-up to their quintessential album Raw Power. While a number of these tracks have found their way onto inferior-sounding bootlegs and unofficial releases over the years, they were never properly recorded since the band didn’t have a record deal at the time.

Williamson always wanted to revisit these songs and has done so with a powerhouse lineup of musicians and singers who don’t disappoint on his forthcoming solo album entitled Re-Licked.

Re-Licked will feature many of these lesser-known Stooges rarities properly recorded and mixed for the first time. This 16-track collection includes songs as “I Gotta Right,” “Rubber Leg,” “She Creatures of the Hollywood Hills,” “Wild Love,” “Pinpoint Eyes” and many others, fronted by a wealth of talented vocalists such as Mark Lanegan, Alison Mosshart (The Kills, Dead Weather), The Orwell’s Mario Cuomo, Jello Biafra, The BellRays’ Lisa Kekaula, Ariel Pink, Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie, The Icarus Line’s Joe Cardamone, Carolyn Wonderland, Gary Floyd (The Dicks) and others.

The vinyl & CD versions of this album will also feature a deluxe package including an in-depth 24-page booklet with liner notes & photos, as well as a fascinating ‘making-of’ Re-Licked documentary on DVD, giving the viewer a fly-on-the-wall experience of being in the studio with all of these great musicians. The mp3 version of the album will also include this deluxe package in digital format.

Re-Licked will be available worldwide Oct. 29, 2014 on CD, vinyl & digital formats worldwide via Leopard Lady Records.

Iggy Pop To Deliver John Peel Lecture On Free Music In A Capitalist Society - The Guardian

Iggy Pop
Iggy Pop will deliver the fourth annual John Peel lecture at this year’s Radio festival on the subject of “free music in a capitalist society." Taking place in Salford on October 13, Pop’s first lecture will be broadcast live on BBC 6 Music and broadcast on BBC4 at 8pm on October 19.

Peel was the first DJ to play the Stooges on UK Radio, bringing the track "Little Doll" from their debut album to listeners in August 1969. Iggy Pop had this to say about the late broadcaster:

I get the feeling that John was the kind of guy who would have done his job for nothing, as long as he felt great about it. So we have that in common. I was interested to learn that he found his voice in large part through his wanderings in America. Sometimes it takes strange circumstances to provide a mirror in which to find yourself. Anyway, he’s done a lot to give others a voice, and that’s the most important gift you can give. Here was a person with strong opinions and enthusiasms who wasn’t defined by any system, because of that his show became an exciting location, kind of like a shop that’s a good hang. So it was a social as well as a musical phenomenon.
