Probably the loudest band I ever saw live.
My first year high school faves
An excellent live band.
All time weirdest hair-do for any pop star anywhere at anytime.
I remember seeing this guy on TV aged 7 and he had "Yob" printed on his guitar.
My dad said it's because he was a "backward-boy", so a bad Boy became known as a Yob.
I don't know if the word Yob or yobbo existed before Slade?
I still reckon if they had a proper guitar hero they would have been bigger than AC-DC.
I think this one (Peter Gabriel) would challenge for top spot;
finished high school in '72... Slade Alive! was the #1 LP in Australia that year...
I still have my well thrashed/abused copy here ....
My fave band for a year or so, until they ran out of steam.
Excellent band. Saw them, way back. Fun too.
Funny, I always thought that they were a lot older than that.
The expression "yob" was in use for decades before Slade, I think it dates back to before the war.
FWIW I saw Slade live in the Marquee Club in London before they starting having hits. (1970 I think it was), They were a proper rock band then. Strangely the support band that night was Yes.
Yes, the Boer War...
Dave Hill's Roller back then had rhe registration number YOB 1.
Merry Christmas Everybody.
BTW - Is that a big Christmas song in the US like it has been in the UK since 1634 AD?
ALSO - Is it illegal to say Christmas in the US?
illegal to say "Christmas"? not yet.
I was at this show.
I wore this album out as a kid
Yob existed long before Slade and it was "backwards-speak" for boy.
A bunch of soft skinheads..
