BABY GRANDE
Australian GLAM/Proto-PUNK, missing link

"Screaming out of Canberra circa 1975-77, teenage glam rock fans Steve Kilbey and Peter Koppes (later founding members of THE CHURCH), dug their heels in and created Baby Grande, one of the very few Aussie bands to successfully bridge the gap between glam rock, and the quickly emerging snarl of 1st wave punk. Although their EMI deal fell through, luckily this LP has been saved from slipping through the cracks."
