Produced by Rough Trade, the first installment of the “in conversation” docuseries features the iconic punk rocker and former Sonic Youth singer and guitarist at Iggy’s home in Miami. The name of the project stems from Iggy’s song “American Valhalla,” featured on his latest album “Post Pop Depression.”
The two musicians discuss The Stooges’ experimentation with their sound, their influence on Sonic Youth, and how Iggy once wrote 12 essays on his former sexual partners, which he tried to have published. The video also includes the duo jamming out to Chuck Berry’s famous tune “Johnny B. Good” around the 15:50 mark. Punk rock fans will most certainly enjoy the collaboration, which features the artists having a blast, reminiscing about the past, and how far they’ve come.
