Glam with style

In Okategoriserade on 21 September, 2010 at 21:55


I’ve seen the Paris lights from high upon Montmartre
And felt the silence hanging low in no mans land;
And all those Spanish nights were fine

I never could get used to the concept of glam. Wear some strange clothes and you´ll be greatly rewarded….nah, not for me.

Some of the Sparks stuff, some Roxy and some Bowie and Bolan – with Mott the Hoople, of course – cannot be ignored but I could never be at ease with those stupid outfits.

Strangely then that maybe the most outrageous lot caught my attention the most – formerly Ambrose Slade and eventually just Slade.

With great football crowd choruses and their obstinate spellings, how could any teenager not like Slade?

Their backlog is one of the strongest in british 70s pop and this one is maybe the best of them all – leaving the competition far far away…
