Wednesday Wake Music: Stooges Bootlegs

My Girl Hates My Heroin

Three Stooges bootlegs for you to put on blast while pondering the loss Ron Asheton.

The first, My Girl Hates My Heroin, is a wonderfully rough and dirty document recorded in Detroit sometime in 1973. Get it here.

Next up are two crisp and sweaty live recordings of the Stooges’ reunion tour. The first, from 2007’s Glastonbury Festival, also features a 10 minute interview and some sorta annoying interstitial commentary from British TV host Jonathan Ross. The band sounds amazing though, and the audience is roaring its appreciation, going absolutely bonkers. “We are the fucking Stooges,” indeed.

And finally here they are going nuts at a Spanish rock festival thing in 2006.

  1. Thanks for the connections!!! Can you tell me where I can find a copy of the Massey Hall August 6th, 2008 show. I heard it was epic and Rolling Stones even highlighted it in Feb, 2009 as a great bootleg. But I cannot find it anywhere. Hopefully you can help me out. Thanks a lot.
