Stooges, Black Keys On Kimbrough Tribute

Iggy and the Stooges, the Black Keys and Pete Yorn are among the artists who have contributed tracks to a forthcoming tribute to Junior Kimbrough. The independent Fat Possum label will release “Sunday Nights: The Songs of Junior Kimbrough” Jan. 17, the exact six year anniversary of the death of the blues guitar great.

“Sunday Nights” includes 14 songs, including two takes of “You Better Run” recorded in the spring by founding Stooges members Iggy Pop (vocals), Ron Asheton (guitar) and Scott Asheton (drums), with punk rock icon Mike Watt standing in for late bassist Dave Alexander. The set will mark the first release by this lineup of the band, which has toured the United States twice since early 2003.
