Glad Corp (tape, ??)


A curious short tape from this band I never heard of. Two tracks are their own, and one is a cover of Polythene Pam from The Beatles. I think they are German. The music is quite nice, but hard to describe.

From Eu Records

According to their 7" Glad Corp hails from New Kent, VA (despite sounding like an even creepier Tanzdiele or Der Plan).

Glad Corp not only hailed from Virginia but shared a house/rehearsal room with other musicians and me on Gansvoort Street in New York City. The singer had a degree in philosophy and was more literate than anyone else in that already bookish household. We used to go out drinking and he gave me a copy of that very tape. Nice to see that someone's digitized it.

I'm so excited to find this post. I saw Glad Corp play live in New York City at I believe Electro Harmonix on West 48th street, back in 1980??? they were Amazing, Loved them and also bought their cassette tape with three songs on it, they didn't have song titles, so I named them, (1) Yea Yea Yea (2)This is Your Life (3) Cramps. I was 15 back then & I'm 52 now and I still have the tape. It's probably the only cassette tape I kept. It's Awesome, had a picture on the front of all three of them & the side had GLAD CORP 212-420-9086, It's a piece of my history, Love it!
Jim , CYANAMID the band.
