Ryan Roxie’s ‘Sunday Livestream Sunday’ yesterday featured something a little bit special, the debut of a new version of the Stooges classic ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ by ‘The Goon Squad’ which features Roxie, Chuck Garric, Tommy Henriksen and Glen Sobel. Recorded this week while everyone was in isolation the recording was made as a tribute to New York punk stylist Jimmy Webb who passed away on April 14th. Webb was best known for his work as a manager/buyer at the punk shop ‘Trash & Vaudeville’ and as the owner of the rock clothing shop ‘I Need More’ which was frequented by a long list of music legends in cluding Alice and the band. You can read more about Jimmy, including other tributes, at Billboard.
You can watch the full podcast video from yesterday here, while the Goon Squad video itself can be seen here. The song itself will be released shortly with profits going to a NY charity. Ryan’s next ‘In The Trenches’ interview will be with Kane Roberts and will air Tuesday evening.
