I remember I herd a bootleg recording of an Iggy concert from the beginning of the -80 where he played Dog Food. It stroke me that it sounded like a Stooges tune from the Funhouse period. I never listened so much to Soldier so I did not recognise at once – I had to check the sleeve to find the title of the track.

Some year lather I red an article in Spiral Scratch (The March / April issue - it came with a Stooges single) about some of the records with Stooges material that surfaced in the late 80 early 90. The author wrote about Raw Stooges 1 & 2 and he mentioned that Dog Food was meant to be recorded in the Fun House session but had been rejected of Don Gallucci. And as you know there is no hint of Dog Food in the complete Funhouse box.

So, does any one of you know if Dog Food is a Stooges original or simply a tune from the Soldier session?

Hello Cato,

I was the author of that Spiral Scratch article. Being written so long ago it is really testing my memory, but as I remember the information about Dog Food partly came from an interview with Iggy that appeared in one of the music publications in the UK. This was just after Soldier had been released, and he mentioned that the song had been kicking around since the Stooges days.

The song was not recorded during the Funhouse sessions because it had already been decided not to include it on the album.

By the way, I also provided the Stooges tracks on the single that came free with Spiral Scratch, which were 'She Creatures of the Hollywood Hills' and 'Untitled' from the 1973 rehearsal tapes. This was the first time these tracks had been released, and this is why the second track has no title. It was later released by Revenge as 'Til The End of the Night'.

Nice one StoogesFan. I thought Spiral Scratch was the coolest mag going when I was at school. I've still got a stack of them somewhere.

So it was you that wrote the article! I found the mag some weeks ago and it was god fun reading the Stooges feature once more – I guess I bought the mag cos I wanted the single (and such a nice bonus to find a feature about all the semi bootlegs – by then I guess I had the most of them) I checked it today trying to find your name so I could give you credit before I sent my question – but the article was unsigned as far as I could see.

What ever happened to Spiral Scratch?

I don't think the actual song "Dog Food" was written in 1970 or before hand maybe some lyrics were originally written then (the way Iggy took bits of "Scene Of The Crime" for "Winners & Losers") but the song it's self isn't a Stooges one.

Iggy has said that "Dog Food" was indeed written in 1969/70 and was part of their set for a period. This has not been substantiated, though. It may have been a short-lived tune, which was discarded when they came up with Fun House tunes, which were added to the set. Per

Interesting – some of the holy grails of not existing stooges recordings would be some live recordings from summer -69 to may -70. Just to hear how the live set developed between The Stooges and Funhouse.

Dog Food certainly sounds like it would've fitted fine on the first album, but probably not on Funhouse. It's such a shame no live recordings from the 60's seem to exist Crying or Very sad

The lyrics at least must be from the stooges period, since he sings about his girlfriend Betsy being 14.

Imagine how the Soldier track would sound like if it had a The Stooges / Funhouse mix without the fucking loud piano.

I'm sure I read somewhere recently that Dogfood wasn't an old tune (like everybody else I'd also read the Spiral Scratch piece), just Iggy at the time claiming it was - just like he claimed once upon a timeto have written all the tunes, etc...!

It might have been written some time before , but it appeared on The Stooges live set late in 70'. The line up that had Zettner and Cheatham in it. I got this info from people who saw them live at the time. Also "Way down in Egypt" was part of the set then- which later became "Big time bum"
