On June 28, Iggy Pop’s legendary, lost classic Zombie Birdhouse will be reissued on CD and LP. The album was Pop’s sixth studio record and saw him combining Afrobeat influences, droning electronics, and free-association. The album was originally produced by Chris Stein of Blondie and released on Animal Records. Since then, the bizarre and compelling album has only been reissued twice. In 1991 it was remastered and expanded with an alternate version of “Pain and Suffering” featuring Debbie Harry on vocals. Twelve years later, that remaster was released again and expanded but with concert recordings from 1982. “Pain and Suffering” will also feature on Caroline International’s new reissue.
All the tracks have been remastered by Paschal Byrne at The Audio Archive in London. The album package includes sleeve note by Irvine Welsh and photos by Esther Friedman, as well.
