How cute, a Slade covers band

Banali joined Quiet Riot in 1982, one year before the band released its blockbuster breakthrough album, Metal Health. The singles “Cum On Feel the Noize” ……Their 1984 follow-up, Condition Critical, was also a big hit, making it to Number 15 on the Billboard 200 and selling more than 1 million copies on the strength of “Mama Weer All Crazee Now.”

So did they do the chrissie one as well?

    A Slade covers band

    That is a genuinely horrifying thought. The wog equivalent of an Elvis impersonator.

  2. Successful cover versions of Slade songs are fairly thin on the ground so I imagine Noddy and Jimmy were more than happy to receive the royalties generated for them by the late Mr Banali and his mates.

  3. Are they really just covers? At least they are great songs. I think my fave Slade song is ‘Everyday’, The Nods voice really soars:
    Oasis did an ace cover of cum on feel the noize
    Speaking of great covers Paul Weller’s re-work of the Chic/Sister Sledge classic’Thinking of you’ is worth checking out …genius actually
    ..and should anyone be interested in Music at all check out this amazing live Wilson Picket rendition of”I`m in Love ”

    Not only one of top all time songs and singers but also contains my philosophy of music “….. Do it again do it again boys- oh -oh- that sound alright to me !…….”

    Do your ears a favour, do your soul a favour.

    I thought Noddy was making a comfortable living collecting the royalties on It’s Christmas?

    Actually, Slade itself is a genuinely horrifying thought.

    One of the acts that septics sat around and said, “What the fuck?”

    Kind of like Kate Bush.

  6. So Much For Subtlety

    Kind of like Kate Bush.

    For a certain type of British man, exactly the demographic of this blog in fact, such words are blasphemy. And you have to admit Kate Bush did the wind swept hair look much better than Slade.

    Just a point of pendentary, is it a Covers Band or a Cover Band?

    Kate was easy on the eyes, but like so many women, her allure left her the moment she opened her mouth.

    “ Kate was easy on the eyes, but like so many women, her allure left her the moment she opened her mouth.”

    That depends on what she was going to do with her open mouth.

  9. I can imagine, Mr Ecks. The sort of people Ian Drury sang about. It was a feature of the times. If the DJ at wherever you were at span a Slade record you knew you’d strayed into the cultural wasteland of the outer suburbs & parked outside would be an orange Escort with a black bonnet.

    I might have known Newmonia would be a Slade fan. Explains everything.

    LOL. Yes, it does, doesn’t it?

    This just came up in my YouTube feed. It comes to something when the the best US President in my lifetime is probably one of the best comedians of my lifetime. And I’ll add that he made probably the best political speech off my lifetime: A Time to Choose

    The comedy.:

    In case anyone is in doubt, I’m a big Reagan fan.
