Iggy Pop 'American Valhalla' by Jamie-James Medina
In Jamie-James Medina's layered new video for Iggy Pop, premiered on Nowness, vintage footage of a boxing match – a world title fight held in Africa – shares space with Iggy's reflective performance of the Josh Homme-produced American Valhalla, within a square that obscures most of the person behind it - model Ruth Bell - until the very end.
The fight we see is a contest between boxers Dick Tiger and Gene Fullmer that took place in Nigeria in 1963. But you'd be forgiven for thinking about the late Muhammad Ali while watching it, and his own fight in Africa, and arguably his greatest victory, in The Rumble In The Jungle.
And of course, with the sad passing of the man known as The Greatest, there are few people who could ever hope to aspire to that title, in any field. But Iggy might be one of them.
