Products / The Stooges - Fun House
(Proto-punk) After mixed reviews of their first record, The Stooges' sophomore release is where the band established themselves as worthy peers of MC5. During the recording, the band did away with all the usual setups (isolation booths and amps set apart, and so on) and organised themselves like they would live onstage. They wanted to capture the essence of their music. The result is a noisy, but real and energetic record that is stuffed with atmosphere. Highlight track: 'Dirt'.
