The Cube at : Dove Street South, Bristol BS2 8JD 20:00 26/03/2009

(The Cube Microplex, for the past 10 years has played host to an astounding set of entertaining activities and is run by a crack group of voluntary artists-workers-enthusiasts. It once was a theatre, avant garde 70's art centre and second run family cinema. It now occupies a place of it own making.)

Thursday 26th March - Heavy Heads - £2
A TRIBUTE TO RON ASHETON AND THE STOOGES.

The recently departed Ron Asheton was a founding member of the Stooges. The
influential protopunk band was formed in Ann Arbor in 1967, along with his
brother Scott and high school friend Jim Ostenberg (soon to be known as Iggy
Pop). Asheton's powerful, distorted guitar on songs like "I Wanna Be Your Dog"
and "T.V. Eye" was a hallmark of the group's sound and created beauty out of
noise. His playing is considered by many to have laid the groundwork for the
entire punk rock movement.

During the psychedelic haze of the late 60s, the grimy, noisy and relentlessly
bleak rock & roll of the Stooges was conspicuously out of time. The Stooges
revealed the underside of sex, drugs, and rock & roll, showing all of the grime
beneath the myth.

Perhaps true believer Lester Bangs summed it up best “The Stooges carry a strong
element of sickness in their music, a crazed quaking uncertainty and errant
foolishness that effectively mirrors the absurdity and desperation of the times,
but I believe that they also carry a strong element of cure, of post-derangement
sanity."

Featuring documentary and live footage in the auditorium and sonic sounds in the
bar courtesy of the Heavy Heads Dj’s.

No new material (which was no real surprise to anyone): Ron interviewed at Ann Arbor High School & the site of the Fun House etc, plus Iggy interviewed on a rooftop talking about grooving to his Dad's electric shaver etc (both interviews from 1986.) Followed by the 2003 Live in Detroit film.
You've probably seen it all before, but on the upside The Microplex is a great little venue which is cheap to get into, and during the film they turned the volume up loud enough to make it the next best thing to being at a live gig. So even though it was familiar stuff, it was still good. Nice little bar and great music from the DJ too. Not the easiest place in Bristol to find, but well worth checking out.

It was just good that they had a Ron Asheton tribute at all.

"People," I had to leave straight after the film to get home for a very early start next morning - was there much Stooges discussion in the bar afterwards? (and was that you talking back to Iggy during the Detroit gig?)

I left shortly afterwards also
