iggy pop’s concert rider

January 20th, 2007


I once worked a job where I got to read Naughty by Nature‘s concert rider. Oh, the booze they requested; cases and cases and cases of beer and booze, a tall order as they only had the one song anyone was interested in. In 1999, you could ask two questions of a Naughty By Nature show: Have they played “O.P.P.” yet? and Now what are we gonna do? and encompass the entire event. In any case, long story short: they didn’t get the booze.

Iggy Pop, on the other hand, knows what he wants and he knows how to get it — via 18-page, over-the-top parodies of concert riders. It’s unclear after reading this if Iggy expects to get anything at all, but good for him and Jos the roadie (who wrote the document) for going way over the top on this one. And I am so with him regarding the cauliflower. (Via Valleywag)

    What’s up with the compositional similarities between this picture and the Tog one below?
