Angel Face and Soggy: The French (Stooges) Connection

Two Iggy-invoking blasters from France: Soggy from 1981 and Angel Face from the 1970’s, the latter of which I’m not even sure of the language being sung. The long wolf intro segue into the slowburn Stooges grind is just amazing though, and there’s some connect to the later French punk band Lucrate Milk who were equally bananas. Soggy opened for Judas Priest and then split; their LP was an expensive reissue a few years ago on Memoire Neuve and included such song titles as “Lay Down a Lot”, “47 Chromosomes”, “Cellulitis is the Top of the Shapeless Body”, and a cover of “I Wanna Be Your Dog”.
