Henry Rollins Pays Tribute To The Stooges’ ‘Fun House’
In his column for L.A. Weekly, Henry Rollins has featured three great sophomore albums — the Stooges’ “Fun House,” The Doors’ “Strange Days,” and The Velvet Underground’s “White Light/White Heat.” For the Stooges, he wrote: “How the Stooges could have topped their self-titled first album is beyond me: It is perfection, but it is quite restrained compared to the feral, unleashed-from-its-cage hungry animal that is Fun House. …The first few seconds of the opening track, “Down on the Street,” are the definition of disinterested badassity. …This album is as brutal as a hyena with its jaws clamped on the throat of an impala. …It is a perfect album, timeless, peerless.” Read more at LAWeekly.com.
