Description by OLDIES.com:

British supergroup Slade defied expectations when they made their one and only film in 1974. One of the leaders of the '70s glam rock movement, Slade was the ultimate irreverent party band. So the rock work expected a feel-good film much like The Beatles' A Hard Day's Night. Instead, Flame risked the truth and offered the world a gritty, realistic look at the wildly mythologized band life of the late '60s - drawn in part from Chas Chandler's tenure as a member of The Animals and as the manager of Jimi Hendrix.

Product Description:

A true indication of 1970s rock excess was for a band to make their own movie, and UK based glam pop outfit Slade were no exception to the rule. Enjoying phenomenal success in their native country at the time, the band settled on making SLADE IN FLAME, a semi-autobiographical account of the rock & roll life. What makes the film so fascinating (and is no doubt responsible for the sizeable cult that surrounds the movie) are the often brutal scenes of authenticity that pervade throughout. The story concerns a mythical band played by the four members of Slade. It charters their rise and fall, whilst taking time to highlight the pressures and the pitfalls that so often beset bands. The enduring message of the film is that fame can be enjoyable, but at huge personal cost. A true one-off in the field of '70s rock movies, SLADE IN FLAME offers a message that still rings true in the contemporary music world.
