Noddy Xmas

The continuing ubiquity of Slade's xmas hit shouldn't be allowed to obscure what a good pop band they were in their time.

A few years ago, Noddy had a bit-part in a sitcom called The Grimleys. He did a few cameo slots with his guitar as well. The best one was a genuinely soulful rendition of Mama weer all crazee now. It's not on YouTube sadly but this less-good version of Cum on feel the noize gives a flavour of it.

Here's the original of their best hit though:

Slade were a truly wonderful band, and much more to them than their Christmas hit!
