The Brighton Port Authority is the new project from Norman Cook, AKA Fatboy Slim. Allegedly the "lost tapes" of a feuding supergroup, the BPA CD I Think We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat features Cook's collaborations with music heavyweights like David Byrne, Pete Yorn... And punk great Iggy Pop, lending his vocals for this brash little cover of the Monochrome Set's 1983 rocker He's Frank (Slight Return.) If Pop ever dies*, this Iggy Pop puppet (Iggy Poppet?) could still tour the country and a lot of fans probably wouldn't notice the difference. This is one puppet that will mess you up. (Click the image at left to buy I Think We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat.)
*Note that I said if Pop ever dies. If he hasn't croaked yet, I kinda doubt he ever will.
