It is a brilliant album indeed. Jim Lea's bass on Move Over... what a great and underrated bassist!
^^^ Agreed Jim was/is a great musician.
30 Years Ago
Keep Your Hands Off My Power Supply
I saw them in the early 70"s in Melbourne Australia and actually "somehow" went to a party organised for them. I spoke to Jimmy Lea (He's my fave).
first time I saw Slade was when they toured aussie with Quo and Lindisfarne...at either Randwick Racecourse or Sydney Showground...after all it wasnt last week...anyway, I was hooked and commenced to get a pile of slade vinyl over the years..fave albums include
WE'LL BRING THE HOUSE DOWN
SLADE ON STAGE
THE AMAZING KAMIKAZE SYNDROME
Yes I saw them there too but also at Festival Hall Melbourne before that other concert.
I think this is one of their overlooked albums.It's great and I play it more than most of my Slade albums these days.Another great album is the B-Sides that was issued a couple of years back.Some of their greatest songs never made it to albums(until the reissues of course).
I went to see them here in my hometown of London,Ontario in 1976 along with Canadian band Thundermug.Easily the loudest show I have ever attended.
November 2017 is the 45th birthday of Slayed?
Mama Weer All Crazy Now
My second favourite band♪ Only second to Sweet!
With all the influence they had on so many glam rock and glam metal bands, I think they deserve a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!
