Slade: Cymru am Byth

I've spoken before of the unfortunate fate that befell Noddy Holder's nose at a gig in Porthcawl in 1978. Here he is pictured in much happier times. It's Swansea in 1975 and, amazingly, Noddy is sporting a Cymru am Byth tee-shirt. His finger-pointing Slade bandmates look suitably shocked. Why, they wonder, has their lead singer forsaken the sartorial excesses of glam rock and gone native? Sadly, the answer to this enigma has been lost in the mists of time. Nice picture, though.
