The moral dilemmas of a liberal Nugent fan 

Wednesday, Jun 18 2008

It's hard to be apathetic when it comes to the infuriatingly fascinating Detroit rock legend Ted Nugent. He presents a musical and moral dilemma for those of us who love blasting his balls-out cock-rock, but prefer hybrids and Obama to handguns and Crawford, Texas. Recently, the avid hunter, NRA member, and DARE champion had some sage words for college grads in an op-ed piece in The Detroit News: "Avoid negative people and slobbering hippies like the plague." But the Nuge hasn't left rock 'n' roll behind for punditry. His latest, Sweden Rocks (released on DVD this month), compiles quintessential hits like "Cat Scratch Fever" and "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang," performed live at a 2006 festival.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
