Def Leppard's classic Slang album came out 25 years ago on this day in North America and photos of the house where it was recorded are available.

Starting in May 1994, the album was mostly recorded at a house in Marbella, Spain.

As mentioned by Joe Elliott a few times in recent years on his Planet Rock radio show, the house was featured in the second series of UK comedy drama show 'Auf Wiedersehen, Pet'.

The show featured a group of builders from Newcastle, England. In series two they travel to Spain to work on a house.

The Spanish villa, now called Villa Amarilla, is the very same one the band recorded in.

It was set in the hills overlooking the port area of Puerto Banús (near Marbella, Málaga, Andalucía, Spain).

The episode it featured in is called 'For Better Or Worse' which was first shown in the UK in May 1986. You can view the show on YouTube. Unfortunately the normal full screen version was removed but a 'dodgy' version can still be seen.
