Iggy Pop has lamented the current state of modern music, specifically the electronic music scene.

Pop was speaking at Cannes Film Festival, where a new documentary about his band The Stooges premiered. Gimme Danger is directed by filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, who previously worked with Pop on 2004’s Coffee and Cigarettes.

“The digital age has made collecting money so incredibly efficient. When we started our band we didn’t know what publishing was. Now you can push a button and get rich quick,” Pop said, as reported by The Guardian.

“It might get to the point where it’s going to grip everybody by the shoulders and shake us and then throw us down and get rid of us,” he added.

Pop went on to compare analogue technology to “throwing an amp into the spirit of man,” then imitating the sound of a techno beat before saying: “It’s like: woah, you know! Why don’t I just die now.”


The Stooges frontman continued to tell the story of an encounter with “a big yob from Serbia” who liked “new techno and electronic” music. “You gonna be polite but then when the guy walks away you’re gonna be like: ‘Oh fuck you, Igor.'”

Pop’s latest album, ‘Post Pop Depression’, was released in March. His band for the album was made up of Queens Of The Stone Age‘s Josh Homme, Arctic Monkeys‘ drummer Matt Helders and Homme’s QOTSA colleague Dean Fertita.

Meanwhile, a book telling the story of The Stooges in frontman Iggy Pop’s own words is to be released through the literary-arm of Jack White’s Third Man Records.

Total Chaos: The Story of The Stooges is set to be published through Third Man Books later this year. The 300 page book will also include unseen photos plus additional contribrutions from Jack White, Johnny Marr and Joan Jett among others.
