The Bangin’ Man was released in 1974 as a non-album single. It was written by Noddy and Jim while Slade was touring Australia.
The song’s lyrics refer to Slade’s tour manager Graham “Swinn” Swinnerton, who had the job of waking each band member up in their hotel rooms, ready to head on to the next destination of their tour.
The single release followed Everyday and marked a return to Slade’s rock-based sound.
