Supposedly an ancient supergroup that went their own ways, the master tapes for the BPA sessions were unearthed earlier this year, cleaned up, and are now publicly available. Fantasy is fun, ain’t it? As our review said, “The album’s strongest track is also a cover. ‘He’s Frank (Slight Return)’, originally by the Monochrome Set, appears here with a funkier bassline, abundant handclaps, and almost subterranean vocals from Iggy Pop.” As the video proves, even as a muppet, Iggy can still kick your ass.
