The choice of a Slade tune came about because my wife and I always noticed that the only Slade tunes getting played on the radio are the ones that Quiet Riot covered. Those are fine, but Slade recorded a bunch of other really good tunes, this one among them.
This track features Scott Bittner (Heartless Devils, Kamikaze Choir) on guitar and background vocals. Scott plays the first half of the solo, D plays the second. We were aiming for a kind of Georgia Sattelites/Jason & The Scorchers feel. Intro nicked from Sex Pistols. And of course we dropped the key by a lot because there’s no way in the world I’m singing that in Noddy’s key.
