Oaks, PA- Music Video Distributors and Target Video are pleased to announce the home viewing release of Iggy Pop – Live San Fran 1981 for worldwide distribution on DVD. This is the Godfather of punk, dressed in drag, in an exceptionally energetic performance for a crazed-crowd in San Francisco. Over the 30 plus years of Iggy Pop’s career, one thing has always remained constant, his absolute devotion and dedication to the live show. From the chaos of the early Stooges shows to his recent work with the Trolls (as well as the reformed Stooges), no one can deny that Pop is the epitome of live rock action.

While this DVD may look rough and raw to 21st Century eyes, it is also the best representation of Iggy live during an otherwise pitifully undocumented era of his career. Fronting a crack band featuring Blondie drummer Clem Burke and future David Bowie guitarist Carlos Alomar, Pop is as unpredictable and dominant as ever (no small feat since he is sporting a mini skirt, garters and stockings for most of the show). Filmed on November 25, 1981 near the end of their tour supporting his 1981 album “Party”, Iggy and co. are raw and ready for business. Live San Fran 1981 provides a snapshot of a hungry artist at the top of his game in front of an adoring crowd.
