Australian singles charts:
Look Wot You Dun entered the Kent music charts on 27 March 1972 and peaked at #43.
Look Wot You Dun was Slade’s second release to feature their trademark misspelling in the song title, following Coz I Luv You. Upon its release, Look Wot You Dun sparked protest from teachers across the UK as it was felt that the phonetic spellings were causing confusion among pupils.
Look Wot You Dun was largely written by Jimmy Lea and Don Powell. Once the basic idea of the song was formed, Lea took it to Noddy Holder who added his contributions. The song is notable for Powell’s contribution to some form of backing vocal, providing the heavy breathing heard in the song’s chorus. For the recording of the song, Dave Hill borrowed Peter Frampton’s guitar as bad weather over the Christmas period meant his guitar did not arrive at the studio as expected.
