INTERVIEW: Jim Lea – Slade (The ‘Cum On Feel The Hitz’ Interview) Slade was one of the very biggest bands of the 70’s and to people of a certain age and younger fans all over the globe their hit singles are standards that have more than stood the test of time.
Whether you grew up on Top of the Pops or came to the band via the bands they in turn influenced it’s hard to underestimate the significance of the band from the West Midlands. Their grip on the charts in the UK was incomparable in a decade brimming with great sounds – notching up 17 consecutive top 20 hits.
Their Christmas single ‘Merry X-Mas Everybody’ is still one of the very biggest selling UK singles of all time and decades later Slade’s single sales are staggering. Now all of those hits are collected together on ‘Cum On Feel The Hitz’ and of course they’re back in the Top 10 again.

“Around 1963 I joined up with Don Powell (Slade drummer) in a group called The Vendors, grew my hair and turned professional, coz mum and dad let me, and dad always believed in me saying ‘you’re a natural’; my grandad was a classical pianist so the music’s always been there. Then there was a chance meeting with Nod (Holder, vocals, guitar) when Don and I were looking to reform our last band, The ‘N Betweens, but I’d never heard his voice. And Nod had been the backup singer and lead guitarist in the band I’d seen him in. So we saw him outside a club in Wolverhampton and I just went up to him and asked: ‘What you doin’?’ And he said: ‘I’ve just quit this band’, so over a chat and a coffee he agreed to give the new band a go.
