Come on feel the minstrel

After a very heavy, deep sleep my only memory is myself standing in a large barn conversion singing along to the 1973 classic from Slade, Come on feel the noise.
Not particularly unusual other than I was dressed as a minstrel. A minstrel from the old BBC show, The Black and White Minstrel show.
In the show which ran from 1958 to 1978, people would sing popular music hall songs dressed in elaborate costumes with their faces panted black.
I have a faint memory of the show from my childhood, but I'm fairly sure they didn't cover 1970s glam rock songs.
