** CONTRIBUTE A REVIEW **

Tell your driver to take a sharp left at Avenue B… go straight on into the seamy part of town, and there you’ll find a squalid back alley called Corruption where you can take a walk on the riled side with Iggy Pop. He may be a living monument to a life of sleaze but despite his advanced age there is little sign that his appetite, or energy, for the kind of low-down and dirty rock that makes the hairs rise on the back of your neck – has gone to seed.

Corruption is powerful percussion – that ever so slightly off beat dragging you along like an unwilling victim – and a powerful dose of medicine although all the evidence here points to a terminal case of cynicism. It’s a grinding power riff that dips its toes in fetid fuzztone. It’s that legendary subterranean growl of a voice perfectly poised on the rim of total degradation but canny enough to behold… then hold back at the critical moment. It’s battered insistence provides a gut-stirring plod through the undergrowth of the human jungle; your ears pulled along while taking a stomping by the aural equivalent of a couple of protection money thugs. It’s a corruscating scrape in the dustbins of human nature. It’s the usual vicarious trip where you come out feeling like a shower and a change of clothes. It’s Iggy Pop – always looking on the shite side of life… on top form with low-life. And it sordid it for me…
