- GET DOWN AND GET WITH IT
The song that really started it all, this LITTLE RICHARD set-closer became a showcase for Nod and a crowd-pleaser for the hordes of skinheads who'd turn up to SLADE concerts, get their boots on and put their hands in the air. "Get Down And Get With It, it was a hard rock song" insists Dave, "and that's what we were about live." Despite the Beeb's support for SLADE over the course of a dozen or so specially recorded sessions, it took a while for the daytime DJs to show their support for what turned out to be SLADE's breakthrough 45. "But as soon as it hit Top 30 and we did Top Of The Pops", Nod recalls "they all started to get behind it."
Note : That old clip dating from a 70's UK short lived TV show '2G's and the pop people'. Slade appeared on the programme transmitted on the 17th June 1972 and were filmed performing two of their hit records, "Take Me Bak'Ome" and this their first top 20 hit. The current upload here on You tube with the 192 TV logo emblazoned across the top has been redubbed to include the single release of the track (Recorded 5/5/71. Broadcast 13/5/71 on Stuart HENRY's Sounds of the Seventies).
