Iggy Pop - Run Like A Villain

Out of all the Iggy solo efforts, I was never quite able to sink my teeth into ZOMBIE BIRDHOUSE. It always seemed totally devoid of content... not surprising given that '82/'83 was a particularly low ebb for Iggy.
Strangely, it was reissured on CD last year and seemed to get a lot of positive reviews... time to dig it out again I think.....
