Album Review: Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles magazine (Canada) [Love Grenade]
Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles magazine (Canada)
By: Chris Tighe
Outrageous. There's no way that a fifty-nine year old man should be rocking this hard or having this much fun. But, hey, this is the Motorcity Madman we're talking about, a man who has always eschewed drugs and drink, preferring to keep his body and mind pure to embrace his passions passionately. The sound on Love Grenade (produced by Uncle Ted and his Damn Yankee bloodbrother Jack Blades) is exceptional, managing to capture the wild energy of a Nuge rockout and his over-the-top attitude perfectly. Whether it be the stormtroopin' military precision of "Still Raising Hell", the hilariously so-Ted "Funk U" or the free for all of the title track, Love Grenade detonates at every turn. If all of us at fifty-nine had one-tenth the amount of energy and audacity the Nuge has, the world would be a much better place. Whack-em Ted.
