Fans of The Stooges and Radio Birdman are in for a treat this spring as guitarist James Williamson and singer/guitarist Deniz Tek have teamed up for a new spin on four classic Williamson compositions from the early/mid ’70s.
The two proto-punk icons have unplugged their amps for drastic reworkings of two numbers from Iggy & The Stooges’ seminal Raw Power album (“I Need Somebody” and “Penetration”) as well as two tracks from Pop & Williamson’s often-unsung masterpiece Kill City (“Night Theme” and “No Sense of Crime”). These songs were orginally composed by Pop & Williamson, with the exception of “Night Theme” which was penned by Williamson and Scott Thurston.
Yahoo Music is excited to premiere the cinematic video for “Night Theme” for fans to enjoy.
As Williamson explains: “The video ‘Night Theme’ is essentially the culmination of three things: A suggestion from a superfan to orchestrate a simple song I had written long ago; a vision my wife Linda had to have the orchestrated piece danced to; and finally the skill and vision of the choreographer Meghan Howowitz, and the co-directors of this video Ben Estabrook and Heath Orchard. For me, it’s a dream come true.”
Deniz Tek and James Williamson’s Acoustic K.O. EP will be available March 31 on vinyl and digital formats.
