Iggy and The Stooges Concert Rider

Seeing as most riders that make their way into the public eye tend to be about the weird demands of musicians, it makes a nice change to see the hilarity that Jos Grain, Iggy and The Stooges roadie, has invested in their rider.

3 x MARSHALL JCM 800 100WATT AMPLIFIERS That have been tested recently. And when I say “recently”, I don’t mean “Sometime in the three weeks preceding the occasion when it fell 5 metres off the top shelf in the warehouse as we were fork-lifting it back up, after it came back from that Inane Clown Pussy gig where they had the Piss On The Live Marshall Amplifier Competition (If you make smoke and sparks come out, and you are still alive afterwards, we’ll give you a bottle of M***er Lite. And a go on the band’s skateboard. And some clown make-up.) The sound it made as it hit the concrete!! BAD-OI-OI-OING!!! How we laughed”.

No! I mean recently. Within living memory. Preferably that of a goldfish.

With regard to the lighting design: (This was written by someone who doesn’t really know what he’s talking about. I cannot tell a lie. Lights-wisely speaking, I’m an absolute arse-head. But I know what I like. And although nobody goes home whistling the lights, it’s also true that no-one goes to gigs to stare at the fucking P.A. stacks.)

Joy! — via Boingboing

    Hello Wolf most kind, but could you link to my site instead of the Smoking Gunt, who nicked my rider and won’t answer to my requests for a link to my site instead. Most rude. Anyway, at josgrain.com you will find the latest. sparkliest, 5-alarm-chili-est version of the Iggy pop and the Stooges rider, and some other stuff.
    Thank you.
    Regards, Jos Grain
