Does your granny always tell you that the old ones are the best?
We're very pro-Slade here at Fred Perry Subculture. Besides their festive banger, Slade are one of the best recorded examples of what was happening within subcultures in the UK's Midlands in the late 60s and early 70s, with the band adopting a suedehead look before developing their familiar sideburns and fringes. Noel Gallagher famously stated that Slade's 'How Does It Feel' is "one of the best songs written, in the history of pop, ever".
So, when a band we've seen put awe into audiences at Dot to Dot, cover Slade's seasonal shopping / office party anthem (with a twist) we think it's well worth giving a spin!
