December 30 [11:30 EDT] -- U.K. raggae rocker Finley Quaye and his nephew Tricky jammed with punk icon Iggy Pop recently and emerged from the New York City studio with the track "Please Share My Dappy Umbrella."
Though this meeting of trilateral powers would impress most, Quaye told MTV News recently that he took his session with Pop in stride.
"Iggy just came down because he was a friend of Tricky's. Tricky and myself were just having a jam, really, at the studio. So we got the three of us set up on three different microphones and a couple of hip hop djs twisting their art on the desk. And we got a good evening."
Quaye said of Pop, [he's] "friendly, serious, funny, amazing...yeah. He's a rare one, you know what I mean?" [800k QuickTime]
Quaye's first single from "Maverick A Strike" is "Sunday Shining," a cover of Bob Marley's "Sun Is Shining." Due to label logistics, the track did not end up on "Maverick."
