The Stooges: Real Cool Time

Fred Mills, Harp, September 2005

"MUDDY, BRUTAL, ecstatic music that grabbed anyone in its path roughly by the scruff of the neck and hurled them headlong into the very wilderness of the senses that lies stretched out just beyond man's deepest primordial fears."
– Nick Kent, from his 1994 book The Dark Stuff, on the Stooges.

Total word count of piece: 1944
