Hi All

I'm planning a set of 're imagined' gig posters for the Kings Cross show, does anyone know how the band was entitled.. TheStooges, Iggy pop and the Stooges or differently?
Also was the venue called The Scala or different?

Thanks for any help.

I'll have to check, but I have a feeling that the gig was only advertised as Iggy Pop.
Iggy (and James) had come to the UK to start Iggy's solo career. It was only when they couldn't find any suitable British musicians that they called the Asheton brothers over from Detroit and the second phase of the Stooges was born. Bowie's management, taking care of Iggy's business in 1972, wasn't best pleased apparently...
Cheers,
Richard

The only poster I've seen is in Per Nilsen's superb book The Wild One. It advertises the gig as follows:

From U.S.A. 1st London appearance of

IGGY POP
ex Iggy and the Stooges
******
Flamin' Groovies
******
F.F.&Z.
******
Films, happenings and crazy suprize attractions.



That's some crazy spelling of surprise, but that's how it's spelt. Tickets were £1.00 (those were the days!!) And the old Kings Cross Cinema was promoted as a live venue under the name King Sound. It wasn't called the Scala until much more recently.
Cheers,
Richard
