'Metallic KO' is the legendary recording of Iggy & The Stooges' final gig. The gig itself was riotous - according to music critic Lester Bangs you can hear the sound of beer bottles hitting the guitars on these recordings. This reissue fixes a few tape-speed faults on the original pressing so this notorious album can now be heard in full effect. Their biggest selling record too, weirdly.

Crazed, disturbing and hilarious, this infamous live "bootleg" has had enormous staying power since being available. The two concerts chronicled - October 1973 and the band's final gig in February 1974 - is a sonic depiction of The Stooges imploding due to any number of issues, with Iggy's personal demons taking centre stage. They blaze through these legendary tracks (in prime "stooge" form)...sputtering, antagonising, blasting, all while keeping everyone on edge with their unpredictable theatrics and sludgy punk rock.
