When glam popsters Slade released a movie in 1974, they were widely assumed to have made a Hard Days Night-style lark. In fact Slade In Flame was an acid-bath satire of the music industry. Singer Noddy Holder looks back at the controversy.
It seems almost unseasonal to be talking to Noddy Holder on a balmy July day. A prominent broadcaster and actor, the former frontman with Slade may have achieved a great many things over his 64 years. But a day does not pass when he is not accosted on the street and asked to bellow the festive declaration of intent that kick starts ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’.
Slade in Flame screens on August 26 as part of the Queens Film Theatre, Belfast Flickstock season
