This week's Cut Me Some Slack is a guitar-orientated episode that features music from Glam Rock through to the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. There's music from Marc Bolan and T-Rex, Slade, Def Leppard's "Let It Go" (from the High'n'Dry album), the title track from Thunder's latest album "Wonder Days", and we close the show with a classic from Motorhead.
Luke and I mull over Marc Bolan's sound, image, and musical legacy, as well as Slade's "Grrrr" guitar sound. Oh, and mutton chops and Midland accents too.
Def Leppard have sold about a zilion records but it's not all been plain sailing. How did drummer Rick Allen learn to play again after losing an arm? Where would they be if they weren't in a band (clue- not an office job), and why Joe Elliot wanted to be Elvis and not a milkman.
Next up, were Thunder, a band I've liked since their first album back in the early 90's. We talk about their new album, band influences, and the 'classic rock voice'. We close the show with a track from Motorhead's excellent 'Aftershock' album - "Crying Shame". So, turn it up to 11 (or more if you can) and enjoy the show.
