Glaxo Babies - Nine months to the Disco LP 1980

Glaxo Babies were the fore-runners of a wave of Bristol music that spawned The Pop Group, Rip Rig & Panic, Maximum Joy & Pigbag, who all became household names as the jagged edged angst movement quickly gathered respect throughout the world. The foursome was initially vocalist Rob Chapman, guitarist/vocalist Dan Catsis (ex-Pop Group), drummer Geoff Aslopp, and bassist Tom Nichols. They released the This Is Your Life EP in 1979; by the time of the Christine Keeler single months later, a few changes to the lineup were made. Most significantly, Charles Llewelyn took over for Aslopp on drums and Tony Wrafter (another ex-Pop Group member) added saxophone. Chapmen then left, and the remaining members recorded the entirety of 1980's Nine Months to the Disco, their debut LP for Heartbeat, within the span of a single day. For the following Limited Entertainment EP (also released in 1980), the Glaxo Babies temporarily hooked up with the Y label. And finally, Put Me on the Guest List, yet another 1980 release, collected demos of the band's Chapman era. They apparently broke up at some point after its release; Catsis and Wrafter became part of Maximum Joy. ~ Andy Kellman, All Music Guide.
I found this record in 1983 in a record store in Hamburg waiting for the ABC concert and bought it on the cover and the liner notes alone, as it was in the bargain bin for 10 DM. A few really strong songs in the vein of the above mentioned bands and some rather experimental tracks, but very great sounds!

Glaxo Babies - Nine months to the Disco

For months you left it uncommented, that there was only a tiny portion of the B-side. Neverteless I now offer you the complete LP as mp3 in one zip file!


hallo jörg, danke für die glaxo's und die zimmermänner - habe ich lange nach gesucht. bin stolzer besitzer der '1001 Wege...' der Zimmermänner - soll ich die in die dorfdisco braunsfeld posten?
herr Ärmel

GERNE! Die Detlef Diederichsen LP hab ich, die 1001 Wege hage ich allerdings nie zu Gesicht bekommen... ;-(

zimmermänner kommt die woche, sind ja einige wm-spielfreie tage..., super wäre, wenn du die knabengebirge von detlef diederichsen auch posten könntest, die habe ich noch nie gehört...

der sänger hat anschließend die Transmitters gegründet, die mehr Funk als Punk spielten. Das Album hätte ich da..



cherry red hat einen Glaxo Babies -Sampler "Dreams interrupted" rausgebracht - und da fehlt doch echt die Hälfte drauf von beiden LPs.
Ich frag mich echt, was der Käse soll...



Vielen Dank für die Glaxobabies – Hast Du nicht auch put me on the guestlist – ich such seit langem den song I know who my friends are ....

Gruss Gustav
