Iggy Konfidential as part of 6 Music Loves Berlin

As part of 6 Music Loves Berlin, Iggy takes you on a journey through German lieder song, the Weimar Republic, Schlager, Krautrock, contemporary classical and the beat of Berghain.

As part of 6 Music Loves Berlin, Iggy Pop takes you on a sonic journey through German lieder song, the Weimar Republic’s cabaret movement, the Yin of Schlager and the corresponding Yang of Krautrock. All the way through to today’s contemporary classical scene and the beat of Berghain.

He also touches upon the influence of this once divided city on non-German musicians as well as the inescapable soundtrack to his short time there as a resident.

Following the demise of Iggy & The Stooges and some personal issues in the mid-70s, Iggy ended up relocating from Los Angeles to what was then West Berlin for a couple of years. It was during his time there that he worked on music that led to his seminal solo albums The Idiot and Lust For Life.
