When Greats Cover Greats – When SONIC YOUTH Barks Like THE STOOGES…

Smashing covers of smashing originals…

‘I Wanna Be your Dog’ by SONIC YOUTH
Original by THE STOOGES

I WANNA BE YOUR DOG is one of the nastiest, filthiest, sexiest rock blasts of all time
with its repetitive and monstrous guitar drone, Iggy‘s horny barks and that single-note piano riff played by producer John Cale (then member of The Velvet Underground). The single was released back in 1969 and a couple of decades later SONIC YOUTH played a
S-H-A-T-T-E-R-I-N-G live version on some American TV Show with a bunch of crazed guests, including a far-out saxophonist and… a mental flutist. Collect all your old furniture ’cause here’s the soundtrack to smash it against the wall to. HELL BLOODY HELL YEAH!

The single was on the raw and rough self-titled debut LP of THE STOOGES.
