Next week will be 40 years since the release of the first LP "THE STOOGES".

I think a celebration is appropriate.

Can somebody post some celebratory balloons or fireworks?

In addition, please post comments.

Never realised this, i wonder if the stooges themselves will be doing something (....or elektra/virgin etc)

i wonder what we can do, actually, we could do a collective listening to the album, like we all gather here and listen to it, too weird? lol

(pity Ron wasnt here for the 40th, sorry to bring it down)

i'll definitely be giving it a loud playing, same as disc two on the deluxe edition, and probaby funhouse and maybe even the sessions too! (and hopefully some 1971 stuff too...)

Some anniversary reflections from an Ann Arbor perspective:

http://www.annarbor.com/entertainment/after-40-years-the-stooges-still-strikes-a-chord/

Nice to hear from Kathy Asheton, among others.

(Also I didn't know one of the album's probable influences was Yusef Lateef... will have to have a listen)

That's a great link Nadja, it makes me laugh what some people thought of our heroes back in the day:

- Gary Quackenbush (guitarist for the late 1960s Ann Arbor/Detroit rock band SRC): “All these myths about [The Stooges] being great - they were horrible. ... That’s the thing people don’t understand. They were a pariah on the local scene. They were tolerated but they got high and they got into hard drugs and Iggy was just a [expletive] freak show. The scene was wide open; Osterberg [Pop's real name is James Osterberg] buttered up Elektra [Records] when they came to town to sign the MC5, and [The Stooges] got a deal. Musicians hated them because they were so insane. I’m not going to mince words, and I love the guys, but it’s the cold hard truth. How they got that record recorded I don’t know. That record was a late bloomer - as time passed it proved to be a very seminal and influential record. [But] among musicians who weren’t trying to destroy or be negative it was awful.”

y're welcome mc

yeh, it was funny to read Quackenbush's comments

did you also note the comments by readers, including one by 'Sherry'? I think I've come across some stuff from her elsewhere too talking about how she used to hang out with the Ashetons, she seems to have known them pretty well, she has nice memories of them all

i still have an original uk copy of the album, but only just, in the mid 70's it was one of a batch i took to a second hand record store in Manchester, not because i thought it was worth anything but i needed money. The shop owner took the Stones LP's but didn't want the Stooges...lucky escape! Most had not heard of Stooges (including the shop owner) and those that did when Iggy burst onto the uk scene in 77 just thought i was weird...in those days we'd walk around carrying the lp's we liked as a fashion statement...saw a promo copy of it on ebay years ago with pages of info and around ten glossy publicity photos. Anyone here buy it?

I always like it when musicians tell you how much better they are than someone famous. On the other hand a friend of mine who saw the velvet underground in the sixties said they were terrible, the worse band hed ever seen. And I remember people talking trash about the stooges esp Iggy, as far as not putting on good shows ect. So maybe we saw them at their peak these last few years.

Unbelievable really that something sounding so fresh is 40 years old.

Makes me wonder what would have happened with Punk/New Wave etc etc if that album (and, of course, Fun House) had never happened in the first place.
I'm sure something would have happened, but I think it would have turned out pretty different without The Stooges as a reference point.

Long may music lovers continue to listen to it!

This comment: "As a kid growing up in Ann Arbor I never heard of or about the Stooges in the 80s and early 90s (despite attending high school with Scott Ashton's step kids). "

Scott Ashton's step kids (plural)? How many kids does he have in total? I thought he only had one daughter. How many times was he married anyway?

If you were a teenager in the early 1970's in the UK you could not get away from Bowie and he was always talking Stooges and Lou Reed, that's how come i found out, a few years later i remember the shock hearing Iggys deep vocals on the idiot...still not got use to that one.

Nirvana was an infamously bad live act, yet they are fondly remembered for their solid studio albums. Nostalgia seems to have imperfect memory, just look at the reviews for the first Zeppelin album.

Yeah, me too. I was buying a lot of records in August 1969. I had read about The Stooges and Iggy's stage antics but didn't buy an album until Funhouse was released and I bought it first. I often wonder what I would have thought about Funhouse if I had already owned the first album.

I don't remember the exact reason why I finally bought a Stooges record other than I was lured by the things I had read. Not sure how long afterwards I bought the first album but I know it was reasonably soon. Sometime in 1970.

other way round with me. Well, I bought both albums together but I'd already heard parts of the debut prior to that.
