The 70s tonight. Silverhead were a brief foray into Glam by a band consisting of future luminaries Michael DesBarres and Nigel Harrison.

Although they achieved a moderate amount of success, Silverhead didn’t last beyond 1974 when the group disbanded and Des Barres went off to form Detective and later, Chequered Past. Nigel Harrison did a brief stint with Chequered Past before heading off to Blondie and Des Barres eventually heading off to Power Station, replacing Robert Palmer.

Tonight it’s Silverhead, as they appeared at the Paris Theater in London in 1973. Recorded by the venerable BBC Radio 1 for their In Concert series.

Another reminder of the short-lived phenomenon known as Glam during a period of constantly changing musical tastes.
