Yes they are Sweaty !! The City Hall on November 27th 2013 , SLADE and SWEET are playing over 20 dates in the UK alone, both are heavy touring bands, SLADE have been playing Russia lately.
I have got to say its sort of tempting....I know both bands aren't exactly what they were in the 70s or 80s......

More " 70s Junkshop glam " . Its great to listen to some of these obscure gems....some of these old 45s are collectable [ for some]





WALKERS were a successful 70s pop/glam band from Denmark....totally unknown in the uk

SMYLE...were from Holland...with Beatles influences. as for TRISTRAM SHANDY and Paul Kendrick.....?? all I know is they are both from the UK

Heres one band that missed the radar when I compiled this thread about 70s glam rock.Worth checking out !

TEARS [ from Sweden ] Recorded 3 albums and a few singles. SWEET influences here...



.....the first track has a FASTER PUSSYCAT feel to it IMO

LEFT END..........Now here was a 70s band from Youngstown OHIO U.S that touched on the glam image and sound. Musically somewhere between Alice Cooper and Slade.I have been playing their debut album from 1974 "Spoiled Rotten" ,got to say its rather excellent .:grinthumb
Frontman Dennis T Menass had a great voice.The band got to play support to some great Rock legends Eagles, ZZ Top,Ted Nugent etc
LEFT END deserved to be huge.
Reformed several times over the years ....sadly after years of illness singer Dennis T Menass died July 2014

Two more U.S Glam rock artists from the 70s

SHADY LADY....from L.A, lots of talent here and well ahead of their time with their proto punk glam around the time of early New York Dolls.
Sadly things didn't quite happen for the band. They recorded an album only for the label to go bust...split up later.The drummer went on to sing for Zolar X.The album "Raving mad " saw the light of day when it was released on an Italian label in 2005

Night Witch / The move



BEAUTEAZE.....from Detroit

Fun city
