They pre-dated punk and haven't released an album together for 33 years, but the clamour surrounding The Stooges' return to the studio has been immense.
Their basic, subtle-as-a-brick blasts of '70s garage-rock power have long passed into rock legend - can any wrinkly reunion compare?
Iggy may look rough, but there's plenty of fire in his belly ("My idea of fun/Is killing everyone" he gurns on My Idea Of Fun), while the other Stooges knock out visceral guitar and beats.
Surely the weirdness is that three-quarters of them are alive, let alone functional enough to come up with 12 tracks of raw, grimy menace.
