During 1982, Holder branched into production and worked with his old school friend Phil Burnell and his band Three Phase on one single “All I Want To Do Is (Fall in Love With You)”, which was the band's only release. Holder and Burnell produced the single together, and it was published under Noddy Holder Music Ltd./Whild John Music Ltd., and released via Speed Records. The single did not enter the UK chart, as it received limited promotion. During late 1983, Holder did some production work with the American band The First, who came over to the UK from Boston, Massachusetts in America, especially to work with him, although there was never any release of material. In late 1983, both Holder and Lea produced Girlschool's cover of the T-Rex song “20th Century Boy” and then the parent album Play Dirty which featured two Slade tracks “Burning in the Heat of Love” and “High and Dry”. The “High and Dry” track was originally written for Girlschool but still appeared on Slade's album that same year. In 1985, Holder co-wrote, and sang backing vocals on, the single “Citizen Kane” which Lea released under his own name. In 1988, Holder recorded “Tear into the Weekend” for a Pepsi commercial in Canada. In 1989 Holder provided vocals to help out Dave Hill (Slade Guitarist) and his newly formed group Blessings in Disguise which also featured, Ex-Wizzard keyboard player, Bill Hunt, Craig Fenney and Bob Lamb. The debut single, released in 1989 for the Christmas market was a cover of The Everly Brothers “Crying in the Rain”, backed by a Hill/Hunt composition, “Wild Nights”. The band also recorded a cover of the Elvis Presley song “A Fool Such As I” which wasn't released. The follow-up and final Blessings in Disguise single, “Chance to Be” did not feature Holder. Holder also appeared on the television panel game Pop Quiz, hosted by Mike Read.
