Release Date: 1977 | Tracklist

Review Summary: Get fucked, baby.

The second set of The Stooges’ long-belated sonic assaults on the unsuspecting masses, the single I’m Sick of You, also released in 1977 on the Bomp! Label, gathered together three more cuts from the Raw Power-era lineup of the band – “I’m Sick of You”, “Tight Pants” (an early version of “Shake Appeal”), and “Scene of the Crime”. While retaining their trademark sound of grimy sexuality and vicious riffage, the selections all offer something either similar or strikingly different from their other material from that time; “I’m Sick of You” has more in common with the “Fun House” iteration of The Stooges with its meandering adolescent angst peppering a limber bassline courtesy of Ron Asheton. “Tight Pants”, for better or worse, is just “Shake Appeal” with different lyrics and with a minute shaved off; and “Scene of the Crime” looks ahead three years into the future with its piano-led groove having more in line with the Iggy Pop/James Williamson collaboration Kill City than with the dangerous Raw Power. Like the prior single I Got a Right b/w Gimme Some Skin, I’m Sick of You is a quintessential listen for any Stooges fan eager for more.
