No fun.

It's already been announced to the nth degree that the Stooges will release their first studio album since Raw Power on Mar. 20, but now's when we've finally got an audible taste of it. Admittedly, it's a little clean and catchy for them, and "my idea of fun is killing everyone" isn't that exciting a chorus line, but as of 2005 they'd put on a great show, plus Steve Albini has been helping produce new album The Weirdness, so I've got faith in the rest of the tracks to come.

The Stooges - My Idea of Fun (MP3)

If Iggy's sober croon isn't floating your boat, Fun House saxaphonist Steve Mackay and oft-mustachioed bass player Mike Watt will be on The Weirdness as well. And if that means nothing...well then, March 20 will also see new releases from the Willowz, LCD Soundsystem, Modest Mouse, Andrew Bird, I'm From Barcelona, and the Ponys, as well as another album postponement from Bjork. A lovely spring to you, too!
