NINE MONTHS TO THE DISCO
Vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition. After the abrupt departure of singer Rob Chapman, Bristol's Glaxo Babies moved into more improvised and electronic-based territory. Their early demos 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 England's 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 Ó la Liquid Liquid piano-based free jazz burners and progressive post-Krautrock jams that would make even This Heat blush. Nine Months to the Disco is a monster statement, equal parts ballroom bangers and dance floor clearers.
