Mott The Hoople/The New York Dolls/Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show: Live in Masillon, Ohio

Lester Bangs, Phonograph Record, November 1973

I'VE SEEN WORSE towns than Masillon but not many. Gila Bend, Arizona is worse by dint of being the asshole of the world, and I thought Macon, Ga. was worse but more I think about it I like Macon cuz it's real nice and sick, fulla Tennessee Williams represso stereotypes with shotguns and mastiffs and darky fears.

Total word count of piece: 1894
