Slade: Slade Alive!
Lester Bangs, Phonograph Record, 1 October 1972
GOOD FOR SLADE. They made it at last. These guys have been kicking around the Limey lard-tub for a little while now, garnering a fan or zealot here and there but never quite smashing thru the windows to the clear air of big money and nerve-knotting shrieks of maniac public adoration. Time has come today for Slade, they're there now whether they like it or not, and high time, too.
