C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Iggy & The Stooges

The world's forgotten boy

Iggy & the Stooges Raw Power album was released 44 years ago today. As a Michigander I can tell you it is one the many products of the state we proudly claim ours.

Today though, that moment of Mitten State pride has been overshadowed by a very dark cloud. Betsy Devos caused serious damage to the Michigan public school system and now the Republicans have given her the green light to do the same on a national level. Not only do we have a tangerine tyrant screwing us over for who knows how long, someone wrote a lot of checks to make sure they could get a job doing it to our kids so it will last well into the future.

I try to keep the music club as an escape of all the crap going on in the world. I don't always succeed at that. Today is one of those days where I don't. Search & Destroy indeed. That's exactly what they are doing. The blood in on their hands.

What are you listening to tonight?
