For Your Spring Break Listening Pleasure: The Nuge at the Electric Ballroom in October '75

Still waiting for a call from City Hall, which is worth sticking around for. So with some time to kill, let's go to the vaults -- specifically, this gem suggested by a Friend of Unfair Park who's cranked that Frampton set up to 11. Our Friend insists he was there, man, on Halloween night '75 when Ted Nugent played the Electric Ballroom long ago located at the intersection of Industrial and Cadiz.

The occasion was but one month before the release of the former Amboy Duke's first solo record. Which means this is classic Nuge (Derek St. Holmes too) -- a set list consisting not only of "Snakeskin Cowboys" and "Hey Baby" but also a track off Tooth Fang & Claw. No "Stranglehold," though. Still very Dazed & Confused anyhow. Says it was a radio broadcast, though no jocks are audible. What you can hear -- two guitars and a choking amount of sweet-smelling smoke.

The Tea Party could plan an entire revolt on this thread and no liberal would ever see it. I left Ted Nugent's 70's rock before I discovered him. I just wanted to express my utter disinterest, which makes we wonder...

Yes, some of us still recall the Stranglehold recording. On the back, it showed the Electric Ballroom. So, what are you going to resurrect now, KZEW? Hell, I could surely come up with a better recording than this GOPig to be, Little Teddy Nugent. As he grows older, he is starting to look like my strange uncle in Arkansas.

Here in Waco, there are many stories about his many appearances around town. One of the local guitar stores housed his collection of mammals he shot & stuffed. Yawn.

Recently, I read where Little Teddy Nugent violated hunting laws in California by killing a young male deer. I believe there were 11 violations cited. Mr. GOPig and NRA does not follow the rules, eh? I would like to add I read this information appeared in a Field & Stream magazine article.

I am sure his narcissism will carry him through court if it comes down to it. Hell, I don't know whether this has been resolved or not. Guess what? I really don't fucking care.

I would not be surprised if he stood in the witness stand with a loin cloth while playing the Star Spangled banner. Although Hendrix & Little Teddy were reportedly pretty patriotic individuals, he ruined the whole vibe of this song. Many have tried, but few have compared.

I suppose he had his recoding heyday; but, have you heard his recent crap? What a lyricist. I am sure that Townes Van Zandt could have learned a trick or two from Little Teddy Nugent.
