- If Im In Luck I Might Get Picked Up by Iggy Pop & Zig Zags / Betty Davis

Ha, what a brilliant combination. If you’re not familiar with Betty Davis I recommend you pick up her two recently-reissued LPs as they’re both superb - she played hard funk with risque lyrics and a filthy, throaty howl of a voice. A totally arousing character, and ‘If I’m In Luck I Might Get Picked Up’ is one of the nut-busting minx’s most, er, direct cuts. She was properly old-school sexy too. Sadly no live footage of her seems to exist, but I digress...On the other side Iggy Pop and scuzz-rock tykes Zig Zags (whose recent 7” was brilliant) transform it into a towering Sabbath/Fu Manchu stoner riffathon, with Iggy in mercifully understated mode sensitively growling it into a hip-grinding rock out. Before I put this on I was almost certain this lot would make a hash of it, especially since I’m so fond of the original, but it would appear they’ve smoked a bowl and fucking nailed it. Not as good as the original but different, fun, louche and very fucking cool.
