It was "De Rigeur" to choose Sweet B-sides on the pub Jukeboxes since they were of a heavy metal nature. Sweet were quite superior to Slade.

T.Rex for me too. Although Teenage Rampage by Sweet was one of the first singles I ever bought. Likewise Sladest was one of the first LPs I bought so had a fondness for both.

You have obviously never heard the album "Slade Alive" the where they play, amongst other thing Stepenwolfs Born to be Wild.

[^] thanks for the tip. I was not aware of Slade Alive - I will download it am morgen.
The only Slade disc I possess is a very early one called "nothing can change the shape of things to come!" Or something like that. They were skinheads in those days. It led me to the idea that canny musicians would easily adapt to the current fashion of the time.

Mexicanman; I had the great pleasure to work with Eddie Jobson’s sister, Anne, years ago. Anne was at University and good friends with Bryan Ferry’s sister and that’s how Edwin, as Anne always referred to him, met Ferry and ended up joining Roxy Music. Anne is a truly lovely lady and I remember she was immensely proud of her brother.

Slade for me - Gudbuy T Jane still sounds fantastic - on vinyl that is [;)]

Always thought Sweet were a nearly band. Could have been brilliant if they'd shaken off the Chin & Chapman shackles (the Stock, Aitken, Waterman of their time [rle]). Whereas Slade always "rote" & played their own stuff and were lees manufactured.

Slade it is for me - agree with billsykes about Slade Alive - great album , Hear Me Calling and Get Down and Get With It being my favourites.
Slade were also responsible for me getting into Northern Soul.
I went to see them in concert at The Winter Gardens Blackpool in June 1972. Whilst waiting for them to come on stage I saw some lads dancing to soul music I'd not heard before which took me on to visit the Mecca Highland Room for a full night of Northern. From that day on I was hooked and NS has been my favourite genre of music ever since KTF

Tying together two 70s threads, LOM had a great 70s soundtrack

Four Sweet songs appear in "Life On Mars"

Little Willy, Block Buster, Ballroom Blitz and Hell Raiser

only two Slade choons

Cuz I love you and Gud'bye to Jane

Easy win for Brian and the lads. I saw a Slade tribute act rip up the Avalon Cafe stage at this year's Glasto, they went down an absolute storm. Reworking "that Christmas tune" "so here it is Glaston-berry..."

Liked em both back in the day.

I c the oldies crowd out in force today — good to read all of those songs names that I’d forgotten. I must admit I felt a tinge of sadness regarding Brian Connolly and his demise into drugs and alcohol abuse. A lot of those groups back in those days were just so crazy it’s no surprise that many of them fell into the abyss. Glam rock was good but I can’t say I really liked it — preferring real rock music — even Bowie — the only tracks I’d listen to were diamond dogs and Moonage daydream— I preferred Pink Floyd or Fleetwood Mac— but the Sweet and Slade certainly left an image and a legacy.

spent my schooldays early/mid seventies when these were at thier height of fame . great memories music(pop) wise. loved the seventies era . out the two id say Sweet at the time but ive grown to like the slade hits wheras sweet hits dont have the same impact when i hear them now. for Slade voters check out one of thier later albums which did better in america than here but some great tracks on it ...Rogues Gallery , Little Shiela being my particular favourite.
going back to the seventies while at school my fave groups were 10CC and in a silly sort of way Sparks.

A great shame 10cc fell apart, they were a very good band indeed; all excellent multi instrumentalists, all equally good as songwriters. Shame they couldn’t accommodate Godley and Creme’s wish to develop the gizmo while maintaining Stewart and Gouldman’s commercial ambitions.

Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman also subsequently fell out.

Real shame that a band with so much to offer couldnt hold it together.

Mexicanman, the Barry White impact was probably down to the effect low frequency sound waves have on brain patterns, along with the overwhelming glamour of the red Capri, of course.

Capri-less,I rarely got over to the Kirk. Used to go to the Purple Onion, but that was the sixties.

SLADE by a country mile. Aside from the obvious rocknroll greats ... stuff like Pouk Hill, Far Far Away and How Does It Feel were evidence of real class at work. They had the lot. Jimmy Lea's musicianship and writing, Noddy's voice, a powerhouse drummer and Dave Hill's showmanship. Add in Chaz Chandler and you have the perfect glam rock storm.
