SLADE UP HITZ STREET!
Can’t wait ’til Xmas? SLADE have a major singles compilation due in September.
One of the most impressive chart records of any British band, the Wolverhampton wanderers racked up no fewer than six Number Ones during their 70s golden period – when Number Ones still meant more than a pat on the back – with an unbroken and still unbeaten run of seventeen consecutive Top 20 single. They continued shaking up the charts well into the 80s, with twenty-four Top 40 hits in total in the UK alone
Cum On Feel The Hitz provides a comprehensive overview of Slade’s career in singles from 1971 to 1991. The 2-CD version brings together a whopping 43 tracks, while the double-vinyl package clocks in at 24 tracks.
The album features, naturally, all six of their UK Number one singles: ‘Coz I Luv You’, ‘Take Me Bak ‘Ome’, ‘Mama Weer All Crazee Now’, ‘Cum On Feel The Noize’, ‘Skweeze Me Pleeze Me’ and ‘Merry Xmas Everybody, and continues through the 80s following their triumphant rebirth at the 1980 Reading Festival with Top 10 big hitters ‘We’ll Bring The House Down’, ‘My Oh My’ and ‘Run Runaway’.
Set for release on 25 September, Cum On Feel The Hitz is available to pre-order here.
