As many have heard, saxophonist Steve MacKay recently passed away. A legend in his own right, he is best known for his work with The Stooges, but his career far outlasted the 1970s punk wave. He collaborated with numerous other musicians, including FMA favorite R Stevie Moore.
He was a big fan of WFMU and appeared on Brian Turner's show, and also gave the FMA a few tracks. We've collected them below for you. The track "The Prisoner" features Iggy Pop and was offered to the Free Music Archive by Steve. Special thanks go to Scott Nydegger from Radon Collective who sorted out all the permissions when the song was given to us.
Here's a recent video interview with Steve:
