Being into Slade in my early teens, once in 1972 I decided to send away for one of their T-shirt's from a Mail Order company who were advertising them in a pop magazine called Disco 45, as in the ad above.
I filled out the order form... YELLOW - SLADE - MEDIUM.
What I got in return was... GREEN - GONK - SMALL.
I mean, how was a 14 year old gonna get a bit of street cred with a gonk..?!!
I ended up just chucking it out, rather than returning it.
In hindsight, I suppose I could have tried to pass it off as Roy Wood merchandise!
