BABY GRANDE - "1975-77" LP
Lulu's:Since it’s release in 2018 Steve Kilbey’s lost glam outfit BABY GRANDE has been a firm favourite at LULU’s HQ.
Originally recorded under contract with EMI the bands waning popularity saw it pulled from their roster and the band calling it quits with no foreseeable opportunities on the horizon before finally unearthed four decades later by Oz-rock obsessives Hozac.
In context it’s not surprising - as a genre glam’s glories were short lived with many of those die-hard believers getting caught on the wrong side of its sudden demise and spawning a sub-genre of their own.
Kilby & co’s lost long player falls firmly into this category of junkshop glam and this record is one stone cold killer - masterful Bowie-Bolan worship complete with some hard edged Young-Lobby style boogie to boot and some proto-punk kicks thrown in for good measure.
Another lost artefact of the suburban glitter generation when rock and/or roll was all about a form of theatre to transcend your own mundane existence.
