The first clip has been revealed from the upcoming Iggy and the Stooges documentary by Jim Jarmusch, which is titled Gimme Danger. Documenting Iggy's legendary, electric stage presence, the clip sees him writhe and contort his ubiquitously topless body, before launching into the crowd. Members of the Stooges explain that sometimes they would have to keep playing a song intro on and on while Iggy lost himself in long crowd surfing sessions.

The clip shows footage of an infamous incident at the 1970 Cincinnati Pop Festival, when Iggy launched himself into the crowd with a huge tub of peanut butter, smearing it on his bare chest before flinging it liberally into the crowd. Watch the clip over at Rolling Stone.

Gimme Danger is out 18 November, followed by the book Total Chaos: The Story of The Stooges by Iggy Pop scheduled to come out later in the year.
