Biography

One of Britain’s most popular and enduring bands, Slade exuded pure unadulterated fun. Lauded by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Alice Cooper and Ritchie Blackmore among other luminaries, they’ve been described as “the missing link between the Beatles and Oasis” – the latter, of course, having covered Cum On Feel The Noize and Merry Xmas ...

I bought "Return to Base" when it came out in 1979 and thought it was a great album then and 29 years on I still think the same. Absolutely out of it's time then, it has some great songs on it and it's the acoustic stuff that wins out: "Don't waste my Time", "'Sign of the Times", "I'm Mad" - absolute gems. And the rocky stuff is great as well. Not everyone likes "My Baby's Got it" - but I beg to differ - Jim Lea's Piano Playing on this track is phenomenal. So it was reissued and turned into "We'll bring the House Down" after the Reading Show but it's the elusive tracks in the anodyne post punk red sleeve that win out.

Review taken from advanced promo copy kindly supplied by Union Square Music.

Life can be strange sometimes. One minute your down the next your up. Slade career wise had more ups and downs than a well used big dipper. In the late 1970's Slade were rock has-beens. They could not fill big halls, they could not get a record deal and their writing was somewhat lacking. Some serious desperate measures were tried. Football songs (Give us a goal), party tat (Okey cokey) and lack lustre songs with titles like `Knuckle sandwich Nancy'.

An album released in 1979 entitled `Return to Base' was unfortunately not a return to their former glory. Some of the tracks showed promise but it was hardly Slade Alive.

A six track 12" single in June 1980 showed a little promise with tracks like When I'm Dancin' I Ain't Fightin' and 9 to 5 which sounded pretty good but not enough to set the charts alight.

But life was about to give Slade another chance when Ozzy Osbourne pulled out of the 1980 Reading festival. By this time Slade had virtually called it a day. Lead guitarist Dave Hill was so desperate he was hiring out his Rolls Royce for weddings. Suddenly a telephone call came for Slade to fill the Ozzy spot. Manager Chas Chandler thought it was what Slade needed. Because even when they were down, Chas knew this band could blow anyone off the stage. No one could touch them live. Hill was not convinced and it took some persuasion from Chandler before he agreed. Chandler thought that if they were going to call it a day then what better way than in front of 65,000 rock fans.

They came, they played and as any true Slade fan already knew, Slade could do it. They DID blow everyone off the stage and Slade were back.

The fine 'Hold Onto Your Hats', 'I m Mad' & 'Don't was your time (Backseat star)' -a truely beautiful put down- brightened the previous 'Return To Base' titled version of this album. They were missing on the original House Down LP. Other newer tracks were supplimented after the Reading festival live success.
Amazingly, Slade ruined 'Dizzy Mama' in the studio, Holder's sorry to say it - stupid noizes - mid song covering that fact Hill couldn't or wouldn't produce a decent or even 'basic' guitar solo!? The song in different version was a classic stage opener, at Reading & subsequent tours. Shame you won't guess that from here though.

A great rift in the classically worded 'Night starvation' but it's again beggin' for a solo.
The title track is fine, but the rest of the original tracks are rather middle of the roadish and underdeveloped. Band sounds generally rather thin overall which is very much unlike their stage shows. Holders voice is a bit more nasal than previous LP's.

Guess it filled a hasty comercial gap before definitley better done projects Album wise arrived. Along with their Old New Borrowed and Blue these are slade's two weakest LP's. However, still a must for a true fan!

Slade returned in the 80s with a fresh, more heavier sound. Gone were the glam rock days and in its place a more heavy metal groove. Just check out the Wheels ain't coming down - a song written about a plane crash the band nearly had and the cracking We'll Bring the House Down title track which is Slade at their most raucous. Night Starvation is another belter and all together you cannot fault their musical class. released around the time of their famous Reading festival comeback this album is worth getting just to hear how one of Britain's finest rock band fought back from the brink of calling it a day to win over a whole new generation of rockers.

For me, this superb album represents the second coming of Slade after they seemed to have been killed off by punk and disco (get me a sick bag quickly!). Here is proof that you can't keep a great band down. I discovered Slade at the start of their success when I was 13 and was dismayed to find they had all but disappeared by the end of the seventies. By the time this album came out I had just begun a teaching career and was delighted to be hearing new songs by Slade on the radio again (I was unaware of their Reading Festival triumph in 1980). The best memory from this time was seeing a group of my 10 year old pupils in the school playground playing air guitar and singing "We'll bring the house down" at the tops of their voices. A new generation of fans was born!

By the way, Don Powell's autobiography is a great read and don't listen to those who say the current Slade line-up is rubbish. Ok, there is no Noddy and no Jim, but they still put on a great show. And another thing, why are Slade records hardly ever played on the radio these days (unless IT'S CHRISTMAS!!)?
