The Original 1976 Album -

the notorious ‘Last Ever Iggy & the Stooges Show’!


‘METALLIC K.O.’ is the remarkable album of Iggy & The Stooges confrontational ‘last ever gig’ (until their reunion almost 30 years later).  Effectively the fourth Stooges album with then brand new and unheard songs, it was released in 1976 three years after ‘Raw Power’ while Iggy was in limbo.  Soon after the gig Iggy checked into a mental hospital.  


The sound of kamikaze Iggy provocatively abusing his audience and then dodging eggs and bottles thrown by a biker gang enhanced Iggy’s reputation in the embryonic punk scene as the Punk Godfather.  Nothing like it had been heard before.  It became a must-have album and far out-sold the first three Stooges albums, with sales of over 100,000.


It is now re-issued with the original LP track list - previously it had been extended to a double-CD with the complete 1973 & 1974 shows it is taken from.  In the 2007 re-mastering, an original tape-speed error was discovered and corrected – so now for the first time the album can be heard at the correct pitch.


The booklet contains Iggy Pop’s story of the events surrounding the gigs as well as contemporaneous reports from Nick Kent, Giovanni Dadomo and Lester Bangs.  An essential album for any Iggy fan!


Nick Kent said: ‘I’m convinced that side two is a masterpiece’ and Lester Bangs said: ‘It’s the only rock album I know where you can actually hear hurled beer bottles breaking against guitar strings’.


Raw Power; Head On; Gimme Danger; Rich Bitch; Cock In My Pocket; ‘Iggy Talks’; Louie Louie. Michigan Palace Detroit, Oct 73 & Feb 74.


Iggy Pop related the story of the circumstances of the ‘Metallic KO’ album in his autobiography ‘I Need More’ (published by 2.13.61 Publications Inc.), and also to Giovanni Dadomo in Sounds.


The Stooges had been playing ‘a pit hole’ down a farm road called the ‘Rock and Roll Farm’ in Wayne, Michigan.  Iggy was playing to about 1,000 kids wearing a floppy, flowery woman’s hat, a dancer’s leotard and ballet slippers, nicely set off with a curtain as a sash.


Someone found the scene and sound in front of them objectionable.  Eggs started flying onto the stage.  So Iggy got really fed up with it, and says “Stop the music!”  He wants to know who’s been throwing the eggs. 


‘Lo and behold, the waters part, and hundreds of people spread apart, and there before me, just standing there like man mountain Dean, just grinning, feet squarely planted, toes out, was this ENORMOUS youth, with the biggest happiest smile I’ve ever seen.  A wonderful smile, cause he KNEW he was king and about to kick my ass.  He must have been 6’ 5”, huge shoulders, with a large plaid lumberjack shirt, and this big grin.  And one arm had a KNUCKLE GLOVE that went ALL THE WAY UP the arm.  Carrying one of those dozen-egg cartons.  He’s clearly got his act, and he’s just standing there, hand on hip, leering at me, and in a deep resounding voice he says “Hello”.’


‘So I had to make a show of it, and I’m on my toes like I’d seen boxers on TV, and I come out like David against Goliath to face my tormentor.  Watching his fist moving toward you was like waiting for a train to hit you.  He decked me with that one punch, right down on the ground, and I’m bleeding and everything – I still have a scar, just dead between the eyes.  I saw stars.  It was obvious I couldn’t win so I said “Alright, well … on with the show!”  And I went back and did ‘Louie Louie’.’


Humiliated, and with The Stooges existence hanging by a thread, the next day Iggy found himself doing a radio interview in Detroit to promote the final show of the tour. 


‘I challenged the entire gang, The Scorpions, of which the guy was a member, to come down and do their worst at my big show at the Michigan Palace in Detroit – which they proceeded to do.  It became “the last ever Stooges gig”, ‘Metallic KO’, with a picture of me on the front of it knocked out cold – lying IN STATE as it were.’


 ‘All The Scorpions came down to the Michigan Palace.  They started out with just beer bottles and wine bottles and vegetables and stuff like that.  But I had an arsenal backstage and a few throwers, so I had them all come out and whip stuff back at them.  It was like a hailstorm.’

‘And on the tape you can hear all sorts of things flying through the air.  Shovels, four-gallon jugs, M-80’s, blah blah.  (But our lady fans in the front rows threw a lot of beautiful underwear, which I thought was sweet!)’


Amazingly, no one was injured – but The Stooges were not to play together again for nearly 30 years.

Paypal is smoothly integrated into ebay, and works well. 
If you don’t have PayPal or want to pay by credit-card, you can still do so through PayPal.  Just don’t log into an account, and look for the button saying ‘Pay by credit-card’. 
We also accept cheques from UK banks in Pounds Sterling, and UK Postal Orders.  Checks in US Dollars from US banks can be accepted with a $3 surcharge. 
PayPal eCheques and orders paid by any method outside of PayPal may take longer to process and be subject to delays.

UK and particularly international postage charges have risen sharply (May 2012).  The amount we charge is what we expect to pay plus approx 20-30p for packing materials. 
Multiple items postage
If you are ordering multiple items, there will be automatic approximated reduction in postage costs – but make sure you order them together, not individually.  If the estimate still looks excessive, don't pay but click on the 'Request total from seller' button in the shopping basket.  We'll then recalculate the costs for your combined items postage and send you an invoice.  The postage may or may not calculate as less; we’re trying to refine the accuracy of the automation.
(Note: the date printed on our postage is two days after we print it, ie the date it remains valid until with Royal Mail.)
