Storyline

While this film may look rough and raw to 21st Century eyes, it is also the best representation of Iggy live during an otherwise pitifully undocumented era of his career. Fronting a crack band featuring Blondie drummer Clem Burke and future David Bowie guitarist Carlos Alomar, Pop is as unpredictable and dominant as ever (no small feat since he is sporting a mini skirt, garters and stockings for most of the show). Filmed on November 25 1981 near the end of their tour supporting his 1981 album Party, Iggy and co. are raw and ready for business. Iggy Pop Live 1981 provides a snapshot of a hungry artist at the top of his game in front of an adoring crowd. Written by Clint Weiler

Definitely not Iggy at his best...
5 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is definitely not Iggy at his best. "Party" is one of his most lackluster albums and this performance lacks the vitality and energy which Iggy is known for. Iggy was at a fairly low point in his life and he LOOKS it. I'm surprised that older footage with The Stooges isn't available for rental; there were some truly amazing performances that hopefully will turn up. I'd recommend this to die-hard fans but by no means should it be used as an introduction to Iggy Pop. Clem Burke (of Blondie) is an amazing drummer and does well with what he has to work with. Perhaps there was a reason that this period in Iggy's career was "woefully undocumented"...
