PlanetMosh.com Review: SHUTUP&JAM!

July 23, 2014

NUG_ShutUpAndJam_small The album literally kicks off with the title track in a flurry of raucous riffs and a howl of feedback in the vein of "Wango Tango" from Scream Dream. Ted barks out the lyrics and lets rip with a frantic guitar solo at the minute mark. "Fear Itself" has an intense, brooding riff underpinning some hefty power chords bringing to mind "Tooth, Fang And Claw" from the Spirit Of The Wild album. "Everything Matters" is classic R&B and is the only song on the album with Derek on lead vocal. He has not lost his soulful range and hits the high notes with ease as Ted’s solos weave in and out of the choppy riffs.

Oakland Press: Ted Nugent celebrates 65th birthday with 6,500th concert

July 19, 2014

NUG_admat_small Ted Nugent is never at a loss for hyperbole — so hearing that he’s “intoxicatingly happy” is not exactly a news flash.

But when he’s talking about SHUTUP&JAM!, his first new album in seven years, the Motor City Madman’s excitement seems genuine. And not at all misplaced.

"I think the freshness, the garage band piss ’n’ vinegar factor has always been a powerful driving force in all of my music and my life, obviously," says Nugent, 65, "but now more than ever these songs represent such spontaneous combustion. Every day, when I come in from doing my chores and doing my lifestyle, I pick up the guitar ... and these songs just happened."
