Hey, anyone else just love this funny song that Iggy did live? Iggy is "Batman" and another one in the band is "Robin", and they play the ol' Batman theme in between the talking! It can be found on the 'Nuggets' Bootleg... Anyway, Anyone know if there exists a better version of the track? Smile

I always loved that song, that are on a few bootlegs besides Nuggets.

The best rare songs I can remember right now are The winter of my discontent, Fire engine, Old Mule skinner and Rock action, all a pity never to be recorded properly.

Iggy's "Fire Engine" and Roky's / 13th Floor Elevators' "Fire Engine" are two entirely different (but both very good) songs.
Incidentally, the 13th Floor Elevators' tune was often used by Television to open their gigs in the 1970s and my old band, the Side Effects, did a sterling cover of it too (if I say so myself!!)
Cheers,
Richard

I think "Batman" was performed most nights on that Spring 1979 tour, usually acting as a sort of lead in to "Louie Louie"
Guitarist Jackie Clark 'duetted' with Iggy on this, taking the Robin role. Personally I love it, surreal though it is.
Cheers,
Richard

It isn't better quality than the Nuggets version and I only have it on tape. One day I might get round to transferring it to some digital format. I'll let you know...

I reckon it's Batman that inspired Iggy's last great druggy song, Repo Man. Check out the guitar riffs.

...and Repo Man deserves to make it into an Iggy best of...

It's a great track definately. I think it's on the soundtrack of the movie but I only have it downloaded myself.

Here's a clip in case you don't know it.

Yeah, Repo Man is one of my favourite Iggy tracks, too... anyway it seems like the Ig always leaves some of the really good tracks out of albums... Like "Dreaming Fails" from Brick By Brick. They really should have done more with that demo...

Anyone else than me noticed that the "Repo Man" track in the movie is slightly different than the one on the soundtrack? I'm not meaning the instrumental intro... anyone know if there are any places to get the instumental version?

"When Dreaming Fails" is a demo from 1985. It was recorded with Steve Jones and a drum machine in preparation for what became Blah-Blah-Blah. For no obvious reason it's often included with the acoustic Brick By Brick demos.
Bootleggers eh? WTF do they know!
It's a great track though isn't it?
Cheers,
R

Yeah, I think it's a great track... thanks for the info, didn't know it was that old... maybe Iggy wants to do something with it himself? as he have jammed on the song for so long. Smile

Iggy often leaves out great tracks which are slightly different when going for a commercial album that's why "When Dreaming Fails" was left out of "Blah-Blah-Blah" and why "O Solo Mio" was left out of "The Weirdness". It's a shame.

I've never been to fond of "Till The End Of The Night" it's a good enough song and it would whoop the best of songs by other bands but I don't think it works as well as "I'm Sick Of You", "I Got Nothin'" and "Open Up And Bleed".
