Iggy Pop and Thurston Moore had a backyard yarn and the result is three insane episodes of untold stories and sick jams

After calling Post Pop Depression album of the year, Rough Trade have shot a documentary on Iggy Pop in the comfort of his very own home.

Joined by Sonic Youth‘s Thurston Moore, who was “coincidentally in town”, the documentary is more like a water cooler chat between the two iconic musicians.

Right in his own back yard, Iggy Pop has a down to earth chat with Thurston Moore in a new documentary titled I’ve Nothing But My Name.

Drinking cold coffee from Stooges merch cups, Pop and Moore begin talking about Gardenia, Moore’s favourite song off Post Pop Depression – the story of a woman who caught the eye of Pop and poet Allen Ginsberg.

“Gardenia was a very tall, very black, very strong young woman who liked… junk. (…) I hung out a little with her. She dressed shabbily but she was a physically impressive alien presence.”

Throughout the three episodes, Pop discusses everything from the Stooges early, undocumented gigs to how they had influenced Sonic Youth – and they both even manage to have a jam of Gloria and Johnny B. Goode.

Binge away at the three episodes below, and join us in celebrating an entire hour where Iggy Pop actually keeps his shirt on.
