HAS IGGY POP SEEN MY NAME IS ALBERT AYLER?

Someone forwarded this intriguing quote from an interview with The Minutemen’s and The Stooges’ bass player Mike Watt: “…Iggy just called me on Thanksgiving and wanted to talk about Coltrane because that movie on Albert Ayler was out…” Read the whole article here.

Rock musicians we for sure know have seen the film are among others Tom Verlaine (in New York) and  Will Oldham a.k.a. Bonnie Prince Billy (in SF). The films’s director Kasper Collin was approached by a smiling Tom after a screening in New York but never had a chance to speak with Will in SF. Friends reported that Will totally loved the film.
