Nugent's rowdy rock
By TIM YAGLE
The Motor City Madman has done it
again. Ted Nugent's latest album Cat
Scratch Fever continues to unleash his
brand of high-energized, frenzied, ear-
splitting rock 'nroll.
When Nugent is buying his defeaning
music-making arsenal he says, "I try to
get something which will give me the'
raunchiest, most devastating sound
known to man." He adds, "Just last
week, we played the Kansas City
Stadium and the police received com-
plaints about the noise from people 15
miles away. That's what I look for."
Nugent buys his equipment right here
in Ann Arbor at Al Nalli's Music store.
However, in a few months he will be en-
dorsing Fender products and, thus,
receive his gear gratis.
Nugent began his ascention of rock's
success ladder as a member of the Am-
boy Dukes band in 1965 (they produced
the hit single "Journey to the Center of
Your Mind" which got the band es-
tablished on the rock scene.
The wild man then formed his own
band in 1975 and hits like "Strangle-
hold" and "Motor City Madhouse" (got
the band rolling.
FREE FOR ALL was the group's
next release and hits like "Ham-
mer'down," Dog Eat Dog," and the title
cut flew high on the charts.
Most of the tunes on Cat Scratch
Fever are in a mold similar to the Free
For All and Nugent LPs. So if you liked
these two albums you're bound to like
The title tune Cat Scratch Fever is a
comparatively tame rocker that just
Then a strangely titled, powerful tune
"Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" (don't
ask me what it means commences the
assault on the ears and gets the
adrenalin flowing with Ted's
stimulating guitar riffs.
Death By Misadventure is a lively
with a good beat and a swinging
melody: The mid sections of this song
sound similar to Bad Company's "Live
for the Music."
Then, in a great finale, Nugent soun-
ds like he's out of control on "Out of
Control." This song rocks your socks off
with Nugent's guitar at its slashing
best. It strengthens your craving for
more which is why it shouldn't be the
last cut on the disc.
As one of the pioneers of heavymetal
rock, Ted Nugent has attracted quite a
following through the years with his
fastpaced, energized, frantic music.
Cat Scratch Fever does not breal the
trend. With his hot brand of rock having
been on numerous radio playlists even
since his beginning, and Cat Scratch
Fever doing well nation-wide, the
Motor City Madman will continue to be
a major force behind heavy rock for
quite a while.

Rick Derringer and his band Der-
ringer's new live album Derringer Live
captures the raw power of this hard
rock band in one of its explosive con-
Highlights of Derringer's musical
career include working with Johnny
Winter's band where he produced and
wrote most of the songs, including the
hit. "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo" on
Johnny Winter and in 1971.
When winter quit performing, Der-
ringer joined brother Edgar's group
where he produced the smash album
They Only Come Out at Night"
("Frankenstein" .,He was also Win-
ter's lead guitarist.
Most of the songs on Live are from
Derringer's previous solo albums all
receiving little to moderate FM airplay
"Let Me In" and "Teenage Love Af-
fair" give the loud and well-recorded
LP a rousing start with Derringer's
guitar in the spotlight, as it is through-
out the disc.
"Still Alive and Well" is a choppy
tune with a somewhat bland lead gui-
"Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo" con-
cludes this 40-minute Derringer concert
in grand fashion with an extremely
short but good taste of the Kinks classic
"You Really Got Me" at the end.
I had the privilege of experiencing a
Derringer concert at Second Chance
last month and his band put on a great
show playing most of the songs from
Derringer Live. Rick Derringer is one
of rock's better guitarists and he really
knows how to get a crowd rowdy with
his yelling and manipulation of his
guitar. This LP captures Derringerat
his live best.
