Slade: Sladest

Michael Gray, Let It Rock, December 1973

SLADE REMINDS ME of 1963 – not because their music is that regressive, but because the pattern is the same: Lennon-McCartney/Jagger-Richard (or Nanker-Phlenge, as they preferred in those far-off days), meet Lea-Holder.

Total word count of piece: 575
