STATOZ QUO with ALMOST SLAYED
Saturday 29 October, 2011
Boulevard Tavern, Joondalup
By Shane Pinnegar
Who’s seen the movie “Slade In Flame”? The pop glamsters are on a tiny stage in a grubby club, belting out the kind of raw 60’s/70’s R&B that makes a mockery of their reputation as bubblegum band, as they win the rough crowd over.
Sat night at Joondalup’s Boulevard Tavern was a very similar scene – right down to the mirrored top hat and stack heeled glitter boots. The main difference of course was the Black Label Society and Foo Fighters t-shirts sported by the crowd, and that in itself is testament to Slade’s enduring legacy.
Almost Slayed delivered a visual and audio feast – rough, raw and ready, and singer Danny does the most remarkable Noddy Holder impersonation this reviewer has ever heard!
They ripped through ‘Cum On Feeel The Noize’, ‘Far Far Away’, “The Slade Alive” version of John Sebastian’s ‘Darling Be Home Soon’ (a favourite of mine I must admit), ‘My Friend Sam’ and of course ‘Mama We’re All Crazee Now’, as well as many more classics, all rendered lovingly and loudly, finishing with a seasonally early ‘Merry Christmas Everybody’ and a raucous ‘Get Down n Get With It’.
ALMOST SLAYED`s next gigs:
Saturday 7th August at
The Old Bailey Tavern, cnr. Reid/Grand Prom., Joondalup
Saturday 28th August at
The Boat, Mindarie Marina, Ocean Falls Boulevard, Mindarie
homage to the mighty British institution that is ‘SLADE’!
They are set to rock The Boat where they will faithfully replicate the bawdy
sing-a-long tunes, the glam and glitter excess and the raw rock 'n' roll power that was the black country legends calling card during their early seventies heyday!
With uncanny vocal and visual resemblance to the original tartan trousered glam rock gods, ‘Almost Slayed’ will take 3 decades off the clock for you, back to a time when British Glam Rock was setting the standard worldwide for genuine good time party rock 'n roll.
Catch ALMOST SLAYED on stage from 8.30pm.
