Last spring local rockers the Boss Martians found themselves in the enviable position of opening for the legendary Stooges. Amazingly, they made the most of their experience by persuading head Stooge Iggy Pop to write a song with them and sing on it for a track on the forthcoming Pressure in the S.O.D.O..
According to the band's MySpace blog, Iggy just finished his vocals for "Mars is for Martians". From the band's blog (posted last Tuesday):
HEY – just got back from recording Iggy's vocal parts on "Mars is for Martians" (the song he wrote with us for the new Boss Martians album "Pressure in the S.O.D.O.") It sounds so killer!!! Iggy is nothing short of a ROCK POWERHOUSE and it was a mindblowing experience (and an honor) to work with him on this track. I'll be mixing the track with Endino this Sunday, so stop by the Martians MySpace late next week for a preview!!! THANK YOU IGGY!!! More release news soon…
I, for one, can't wait to hear how the final product sounds.
