  • There was a time when you really had to hunt for a copy of Metallic KO, chasing false lead after false lead until you finally came upon that backstreet record store that had imported a copy or two of the vinyl (and marked the price up accordingly). Today the thing is everywhere, and in so many perplexing permutations that, sometimes, you wish the CD revolution hadn't made everything so easy for people. Make them work again for their music -- it would mean an awful lot more to them if they did. Because Metallic KO means the world -- to anyone and everyone who ever sat down and unsuspectingly dropped needle onto wax and then reeled back in horror; this ain't rock & roll, it's a snuff movie. And the fact that it all sounds so tame these days just shows how much it's become a part of the language. This is not the "true" Metallic KO. Spread out over two CDs, it serves up six songs apiece from the two shows that were boiled together for the original vinyl -- doubling the length of the LP, but maybe diminishing the impact some. But still, through lurching takes of "Open Up and Bleed," "Heavy Liquid," and the ever-inspiring "I Got Shit" (all of which are new to the package), past the familiar dissolution of "Head on the Curb," "Rich Bitch," and "Cock in My Pocket," and into the nightmare closure, this remains rock & roll so far out on the edge that you get dizzy just listening to it. And, by the time the last glass explodes at the end of the world's greatest "Louie, Louie," you'll be ready to take on anything. ~ Dave Thompson
Professional Reviews
The Wire (1/99, p.59) - "...newly remastered version of The Stooges' last shows from 1973-74 features Iggy in orgiastic Gotterdammerung mode, goading audiences to do their worst....absolutely compelling."
