I was going to write about how if you feel the temptation to buy some new music, I recommend listening to Slade instead as they are probably better than whatever it is you’re thinking of buying.
This strategy has been working pretty well for me over the last few days. I watched the excellent, grim-oop-north Slade In Flame on Saturday (my girlfriend was asleep) followed by repeated listenings of Slade On Stage from The Live Collection from Salvo. It’s an absolute belter of an album full of fat power-chords, great hooks and Noddy Holder’s unbeatable testifying holler.
One thing led to another and I ended up having a wee swatch on Amazon. The bloody thing is only £13.99! Probably all the Slade you ever need on 4 CDs with a, no doubt, lovely booklet of pics and a biography for £13.99. If you don’t immediately head over there and buy this you either own it already or you are not my friend.
So, anyway, this post became about how amazing Slade are instead and how I’m £14 down.
