EDITORS’ NOTES

As the decades pass, Ted Nugent has become more famous for his rambunctious right-wing political rants than his music. Shutup&Jam! is his first album of new material in seven years. Like many rockers of his vintage, he largely plays to a hardcore cult audience that has been attending shows since his ‘70s heyday with “Stranglehold” and the albums Cat Scratch Fever and Double Live Gonzo!. Here, longtime coconspirator Derek St. Holmes is locked in place on guitar and vocals, with Greg Smith on bass and Mick Brown on drums. Sammy Hagar contributes vocals to “She’s Gone,” a track like many on Shutup&Jam! that plays like a loud boogie. Despite the album’s title, this isn't an instrumental album loaded with guitar solos (for that, check “Throttledown”). It's the same ol’ Ted, reminding us how much he loves guns, women, red meat, and country (despite his own lack of military service).
