Iggy Pop Plays Mop Mop

Written by . Filed under Uncategorized. No comments.

Well yeah it looks like even Mr. Pop digs our sound.
On his radio show Iggy Confidential on BBC 6 Music he recently aired our track “The Golden Bamboo”. But it’s not the first time!
He played already our track “Kamakumba” some time ago.
These things make us happy!!
