Evil Witchman

Album: The Genesis of Slade (1966)
  • In his autobiography Who's Crazee Now?, Noddy Holder said this song was made up on the spot by American record producer Kim Fowley: "I was playing this riff and he started scribbling down some daft words and that was it". It was recorded in two takes and released on Columbia in August 1966 as the B Side of "You Better Run," the first "proper" single by the 'N Betweens, making #1 in the local Midlands charts. In the US it was released as the B Side of "Security." >>
