THE TROGGS: REG PRESLEY, RICHARD MOORE, RONNIE BOND and TONY MURRAY All four band members sign a 1973 contract for a performance on TV's The Midnight Special. Also signed by Burt Sugarman as Producer. Document signed: "Reg Presley", "Richard Moore", "Ronnie Bond" and "Tony Murray", 2 pages, 8¼x10½. Also signed: "Burt Sugarman". Printed on thermal paper of the type used by old fax machines. Document titled Exhibit A, stating that the signatories understand and accept the terms of a concurrent agreement between Starlite Artistes, representing the band on, and Burt Sugarman, Inc., the production company, governing an appearance of The Troggs on The Midnight Special television program. They are to perform live at the Marquee Club in London on October 20, 1973, with the recording of their performance broadcast on November 16. They are to be paid $768 as a Specialty Act, plus a 10% agency commission. The Troggs were an English rock band whose biggest hit "Wild Thing," now a cult classic, appeared in 1966. The Troggs, whose music has been called "garage rock" and "caveman rock," recalled the early days of the "British invasion," before groups like the Beatles went psychedelic. Some of their songs were controversial, like "I Can't Control Myself," banned from play on many radio stations. Not all their music had a ragged edge; they could perform power pop ballads like "Love is All Around." The "Troggs tapes," a recording of band members bickering loudly during a recording session, is also widely circulated. Mistakenly delaying a US tour for over two years, the group stopped charting hits after 1969, but they still thrive in live performance and are cited as an influence by many punk rockers of the 1970s and after. REG PRESLEY, an original group member, handled lead vocals. RONNIE BOND (d. 1992) was the drummer. TONY MURRAY and RICHARD MOORE (a Canadian) played guitar. BURT SUGARMAN (b. 1939) is a prominent American TV producer, whose programs included Entertainment Tonight, Celebrity Sweepstakes and The Dating Game. He has also produced feature films, including Children of a Lesser God (1986). Midnight Special, which ran from 1973 to 1981, was noteworthy for its live performances, at a time when many musicians lip synched their recordings when appearing on TV. 2 filing holes at top margin.
