Slade are an English glam rock band. Slade were one of the most recognisable acts of the glam rock movement and were, at their peak, the most commercially popular band in the UK.

Overview

Slade are from Wolverhampton in the West Midlands. Don Powell and Jimmy Lea were both born and raised there, although Dave Hill was actually born in Devon and moved to Wolverhampton as a child. Noddy Holder was born and raised in the nearby town of Walsall.

One of the most acclaimed British Rock bands of the 1970s, Slade are especially remembered for their brash songwriting and energetic live performances. Today, the band is often regarded as an obvious pre-cursor to late 1970s British Punk (Sex Pistols, The Clash).

The group dominated the British charts during the early 1970s. During the height of their success, Slade out-performed their chart rivals Wizzard, Sweet, T.Rex, Suzi Quatro, Mud, Smokie, Gary Glitter, Roxy Music and David Bowie. In the UK, they achieved 12 top five hits from 1971 to 1974, six of which topped the charts. In total, Slade had 17 top 20 hits between 1971 and 1976 including six #1s, three #2s and two #3s. No other UK act of the period enjoyed such consistency in the UK top 40 and Slade actually came the closest to emulating The Beatles' 22 top ten records in a single decade (1960s). Three of their singles entered the charts at #1 and they sold more singles in the UK than any other group of the 1970s. This article refers to the 1970s rock and roll band. ...

While Slade's attempts at cracking the United States market were largely unsuccessful, they left their mark on several US bands who cite Slade as an influence. Kiss bassist Gene Simmons readily admits that his band's early songwriting ethos and stage performance style was influenced by Slade. In his book "Kiss and Make-Up," Simmons writes on page 85, "the one we kept returning to was Slade," and "we liked the way they connected with the crowd, and the way they wrote anthems... we wanted that same energy, that same irresistible simplicity. but we wanted it American-style." Tom Petersson of Cheap Trick has said that his band went to see Slade perform, and that they used "every cheap trick in the book", thus inadvertently coining his group's name. Quiet Riot had a U.S. hit with their cover of Cum on Feel the Noize. Kiss is an American rock band formed in New York City in January 1973. ...

Cum on Feel the Noize is a hard rock song originally released by Slade in 1973. ...


The original band's memory was kept alive by comedians Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer, who respectfully sent up the band in a number of what the band called 'hysterically accurate' 'Slade in residence' and 'Slade on holiday' sketches in their The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer TV show in the early 1990s - these are available on DVD.

It has been said that Christopher Guest and Harry Shearer based their fictional band Spinal Tap, in the film This is Spinal Tap, on Slade. However, the comedians have since confirmed that the band in the film was based on the "tour diaries" of numerous UK "heavy metal" and "glam" bands. The events occurring to Spinal Tap in the film are based on the real exploits of not only Slade but also Deep Purple, Saxon, Led Zeppelin and Ozzy Osbourne. For the Lord of Appeal in Ordinary, see Christopher Guest, Baron Guest. ... Harry Julius Shearer (born December 23, 1943) is an American comedic actor and writer. ...

For the bands 1969 eponymous debut album, see Led Zeppelin (album). ... Ozzy redirects here. ...


While doing research for the film, Shearer and his fellow writers and cast-mates interviewed a number of 70s Rock stalwarts requesting their greatest "road stories". Slade happily contributed several. One of the film's primary plot-points revolves around Spinal Tap attempting to "break America". Slade spent a great deal of time trying to translate their very British style of entertainment to American audiences with minimal success. The story of Slade's bewildered (and sometimes misguided) tries at U.S. audiences resulted in the film's primary concept; thus, their frequent association with the movie. For other uses, see Spinal Tap (disambiguation). ...


In fact, at one point in the film, Spinal Tap is listed on a marquee as playing second billing to a Puppet Show. Noddy Holder tells a similar story regarding Slade's "low phase" in his autobiography, "Who's Crazee Now?!".


Career history

The band started out as the N'Betweens in 1966 with Noddy Holder and amongst others were Tony Taylor (aka Big T), formed from members of two Midlands bands, The Vendors and Steve Brett & The Mavericks. They initially had little success, apart from on the local club circuit, where they were extremely busy and in the late 1960s the band changed its name to Ambrose Slade and hooked up with manager Chas Chandler. Their name was eventually shortened to Slade, and the band adopted a skinhead look, as an attempt to gain publicity from what was a newsworthy youth fashion trend. They later abandoned this look, due to the unwelcome association with football hooliganism. They grew their hair long again, in time to become a leading part of the glam rock movement, releasing songs with deliberately Black Country-style mis-spelled titles which made them stand out. Bryan James Chas Chandler (born 18 December 1938, died 17 July 1996) was an English musician, record producer and manager of several successful music acts. ... Skinheads, named for their close-cropped or shaven heads, are a working-class subculture that originated in the United Kingdom in the late 1960s, and then spread to other parts of the world. ... Football hooliganism (sometimes described as the English Disease) is hooliganism by football club supporters. ... Glam rock (also known as glitter rock), is a rock music style that developed in the UK in the post-hippie early 1970s which was performed by singers and musicians wearing outrageous clothes, makeup, hairstyles, and platform-soled boots. ... The Black Country is a loosely-defined area of the English West Midlands conurbation, to the north and west of Birmingham, and to the south and east of Wolverhampton, around the South Staffordshire coalfield. ...


From 1971 to 1975, the band scored many huge-selling consecutive hit albums and singles. Their most noted Christmas anthem has resurfaced seasonally and formed one of a successions of singles that entered the charts at number one - a feat unheard of since the days of The Beatles. After dominating the chart in 1973, 1974 saw a slight change in musical direction for the band. The soundtrack album to their only film, Slade In Flame (1974) contained a more mature sound and perhaps remains to this day their most influential album, with clever use of brass and piano, somewhat forerunning bands such as the Jam and Oasis. Their concerts were all automatic sellouts, and the band was the first to take the risk of booking the massive Earls Court Exhibition Centre in London for a couple of nights (although David Bowie promptly booked the venue for a couple of dates before Slade were due to perform). Following the ground-breaking shows, Don Powell was critically injured in a car crash and with his life in danger, the band's future was left in the balance. Powell eventually recovered, although he still suffers with acute short-term memory and sensory problems. The White Album, see The Beatles (album). ...

David Bowie (pronounced ) (born David Robert Jones on 8 January 1947) is an iconic English musician, actor, producer, arranger, and audio engineer. ...


Partly due to changes in music trends and the advent of punk rock and New Wave music, Slade's success faded somewhat by the late 1970s, although the group continued to release records and punk bands were not afraid to cite them as an influence. Punk rock is an anti-establishment music movement beginning around 1976 (although precursors can be found several years earlier), exemplified and popularised by The Ramones, the Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Damned. ... New Wave was a music genre that existed during the late 1970s and the early-to-mid 1980s. ...


In August 1980, Ozzy Osbourne's Blizzard Of Ozz cancelled their set at the Reading Festival with very short notice. Slade, who had all but disbanded, were recommended to replace them. A demoralised Dave Hill had effectively left the band and initially refused to do the show when asked by the other band members, but manager Chas Chandler convinced Hill to play what could very well have been their last ever live show in front of a huge crowd rather than in a small club. To Hill's utter astonishment, the band were well-received at the festival (highlights of their performance were also broadcast on BBC Radio 1's Friday Rock Show Reading special), and quickly became darlings of the music press again — despite doing nothing at all differently at Reading than they had done onstage in recent years.

The Friday Rock Show was a radio show in the United Kingdom that was broadcast on BBC Radio 1 from 2200 to 0000 on Friday nights from 1978 to 1993. ...


A new run of chart success followed, though not on the large scale of their 1970s heights. In 1980, the heavy rocking "We'll Bring the House Down" reached #10 in The UK, and an album of the same name got to #25. Holder and Lea became in-demand for production and songwriting duties for other acts for a while, including Girlschool. Slade had two UK top 10 hits in 1984, with "My Oh My" (#2) and "Run Runaway" (#7). These singles also reached the US top-40, with "Run Runaway" peaking at #20. Interestingly enough, these hits happened despite Slade not touring to support the releases. A year after the triumph of "My Oh My", the band reached the UK top-20 with "All Join Hands", another vaguely Christmas-styled song. Girlschool are a long-running English all-female heavy metal band originating out of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. ...


They later returned to the UK Singles Chart in 1991 with the song "Radio Wall of Sound". “British Hit Singles” redirects here. ...


Holder became weary of constant touring, effectively managing the band and of the music business and left the band in late 1991 after 25 years. The remainder of the band were given a period of notice in which to consider their options. Rather than take on another singer, Lea effectively retired from live work, preferring to work quietly, at his own pace, alone in the studio.


Lea had released a solitary low-profile solo single under his own name and three others, plus an album as The Dummies, during the latter years of his tenure with Slade. After Slade split, Lea remained resolutely silent, save for the rather sporadic release of a few singles under pseudonyms such as The Clout, Greenfields Of Tong and also as Whild.


In 2007, however, he finally released an album of mainly unheard new original material, credited with his full name, James Whild Lea, entitled Therapy. He has recently said that he has amassed a large number of finished recordings that could be made available in the near future. Lea has no plans to tour to promote future releases, which are available via his own internet retail outlet.


Powell and Hill (the band's founder members) formed Slade II with three other local musicians at that point. The suggestion to call the group Slade II came from Noddy Holder. The group name was once again shortened to Slade after a period and over the years a number of new members have come and gone with only Hill and Powell remaining constant throughout. The group work solidly on the UK theatre circuit in the winter months and throughout Europe during the rest of the year. They have released one album, which has been retitled a number of times and a few singles in Europe.

Deathstroke - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2103 words)
Slade then disguises himself as Old One from The Forces of Nature and tries to trick Thunder and Lightning, two teenage storm elementals, into destroying Jump City, but that too failed when Beast Boy helped the brothers to see the error of their ways.
Slade makes a final appearance in the last episode of the series, "Things Change" when Beast Boy was searching for answers on why a newly revived Terra seemed to have lost all memory of her past or superpowers.
Slade confronts Beast Boy, denying anything to do with Terra's sudden regeneration, and saying that if Terra didn't remember her past, it was because she didn't want to remember, and that he should leave her alone, in peace.
