Artist: GLAXO BABIES
Title: Nine Months To The Disco
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"After the abrupt departure of singer ROB CHAPMAN, Bristols GLAXO BABIES moved into more improvised and electronic-based territory. Their early demos (as compiled on Put Me on the Guest List, also available from Superior Viaduct) only hinted at such exotic sounds. Other bands from Manchester and New York were spiking post-punk with dance beats, yet Glaxo Babies were brimming with fun and spontaneity, spearheading Englands death disco movement in the process. Reportedly recorded in a single day, Nine Months to the Disco originally appeared on Heartbeat Records in 1980. Glaxo Babies sole proper album veers between wiry electro a la Liquid Liquid ("Free Dem Cells"), piano-based free jazz burners ("Seven Days") and progressive post-Krautrock jams that would make even This Heat blush, culminating in the mutant funk masterpiece "Shake (The Foundations)" (which was regularly covered by The Pop Group in their live set). Nine Months to the Disco is a monster statement, equal parts ballroom bangers and dancefloor clearers." - Superior Viaduct.

Artist: GLAXO BABIES
Title: Put Me On The Guest List
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"GLAXO BABIES are the greatest UK post-punk band youve never heard. Formed in Bristol in late 1977 and named after the British pharmaceutical giant who allegedly inoculated thousands with a toxic vaccine, the original lineup included ROB CHAPMAN (vocals), DAN CATSIS (guitar), TOM NICHOLS (bass) and GEOFF ALSOPP (drums). The bands pioneering mix of metallic guitar, dubbed-out rhythms and shamanistic chants found its way into the bloodlines of generations on both sides of the pond. Naturally, Glaxo members later joined THE POP GROUP and MAXIMUM JOY. Originally released on Heartbeat Records in 1980, Put Me on the Guest List collects the bands propulsive demos, mostly performed live in the studio with no overdubs and not originally intended for release. "This Is Your Life" is a veritable classic, with Chapmans angst-ridden lyrics soaring low as the band rides tense, sinuous grooves. The skittish "Police State" stands toe-to-toe with the art-punk flag-bearers in the North (Gang of Four, Mekons) and in London (Wire, The Homosexuals). "Stay Awake" is a vitriolic screed as powerful as anything from the newly formed Public Image Limited. By the time Englands post-punk scene was in full bloom, dominating the pop charts in the UK and college radio in the US, Glaxo Babies had unfortunately dissolved." - Superior Viaduct.
