Watch James Williamson Perform Stooges Songs With Alison Mosshart + Lisa Kekaula
Recently, Stooges guitarist James Williamson announced that he would be taking his Re-Licked project to Last Call With Carson Daly for a set of performances -- and last night (Feb. 25), he made good on his word.
For the album -- which arrived last year -- Williamson reimagined previously unreleased Stooges songs written following the release of Raw Power between 1973-1974. For each track, Williamson enlisted the help of guest musicians to stand in for Iggy Pop on vocals. The Stooges guitarist’s collaborations range from former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra and Ariel Pink to the Kills and the Dead Weather’s Alison Mosshart and the Bellrays’ Lisa Kekaula -- among others.
First up on Last Call, Williamson and Mosshart teamed up for “Till the End of the Night,” which you can watch above. Mosshart brings a smoky, restrained power to the tune. Kekaula, on the other hand, serves up a larger-than-life, soulful performance for her interpretation of “I Got a Right.” You can watch that performance below:
