Iggy Pop to release 'lost' Stooges songs
Iggy Pop is set to team up with Stooges guitarist James Williamson to record a host of material written – but never released – in the band's '70s heyday.

Williamson, who played guitar on The Stooges 1973 album 'Raw Power', recently rejoined the reformed band in place of original guitarist Ron Asheton, who died in January 2009.

Speaking of his plans for the new line-up of the band, who are set to tour in 2010, Pop said he is keen to enter the studio to record the lost songs for the first time.

"James Williamson is really hot to trot and there's a lot of old stuff that The Stooges failed to record. We wrote a load of songs that we only ever played live, so I'm looking forward to doing some studio recordings," he told Bang Showbiz.

In May, Pop revealed that Asheton had written six or seven songs shortly before his death that could be used in the future.
