Listen to the April 17, 2016, episode of the Strombo Show. 


"I'm gonna break into your heart. I'm gonna crawl under your skin. I'm gonna break into your heart and follow till I see where you begin." — Iggy Pop

The Strombo Show ran the gamut this Sunday night, keeping the spirit of radio alive by delivering the best records in the best order. It's a show for music lovers by music lovers, ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new. 

George Stroumboulopoulos welcomed Iggy Pop's backing band — Josh Homme, Dean Fertita and Matt Helders — for an intimate conversation in the House.

Iggy Pop realized that he might only have on last shot at making a "real album" with the loss of his collaborators, the Stooges and David Bowie, surrounding him. He reached to Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, who then recruited Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders and regular QOTSA partner Dean Fertita. Together, they went to the desert and recorded an album about sex and death, called Post Pop Depression. In the midst of their worldwide tour, Iggy's accomplished backing band joined George to celebrate the life of their frontman, discuss their other projects and reflect on the recent loss of rock icons.

Also, George dropped a handful of exclusive premieres from Canadian musicians such as the Kents, Pkew! Pkew! Pkew!, Montreal's Heartstreets, Islands and Plants And Animals 

You know what to do: Lock it. Crank it! Join the collective.
