Angkor Pop!' is an exotic and ambitious compilation project showcasing the very best of Cambodia's new wave of East/West fusion groups_an homage that marks several astonishing milestones in rock'n'roll history: the 50th anniversary of The Stooges, the 40th anniversary of the seminal Iggy Pop/David Bowie albums 'The Idiot' and 'Lust For Life,' and, not least, the occasion of Iggy Pop's 70th birthday!!
The best of Cambodia's music scene, acts like The Cambodian Space Project, Doch Chkae, Kampot Playboys, Professor Kinski with Miss Sarawan and Jessica Lisha Srin, Bokor Mountain Magic Band, Phnom Skor just to name a few -each covering selections from Iggy Pop's astonishing back catalogue- with the full blessing of the man himself, who seemed (and seems) rather chuffed with this tribute coming from far flung Cambodia.
Produced by Julien Poulson and Jason Shaw, this collection puts a unique, contemporary Cambodian spin on Iggy's poetry and rock-action.
