When it comes to trashy rock n roll there are several obvious contenders for the crown of kitsch; for example, you can finger point to the wasted ways of mega platinum poseurs such as Guns 'n Roses and Mötley Crüe but scratch beneath the surface and youll unearth a number of also-rans that paid their dues on the highway to hell and back.
Chief amongst these is Smashed Gladys, a widely revered New York based unit with cultural links to pioneering Big Apple anarchic rockers like Circus Of Power, The Throbs, Warrior Soul and the Cycle Sluts From Hell.
Amazingly, Smashed Gladys were first talent spotted by Kiss bassist Gene Simmons who helped them produce a demo.
Fronted by the wildly enigmatic Sally Cato, the band worked up a bad-as-can-be reputation on the club circuit which led to an impressive recording contract with Elektra Records, a label already committed to salacious sleaze rock having Mötley Crüe and Faster Pussycat on their books.
Produced by Ric Browde (Poison, Faster Pussycat) and originally issued in 1988, 'Social Intercourse' was immediately hailed as a minor glam sleaze classic, attracting mouth watering reviews and an acknowledgement that Smashed Gladys were teetering on the edge of something very special indeed.
Sadly, through no fault of their own, success slipped through their grasp, leaving us with little more than a glance at what could have been.
24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album, new interview and additional photos spread out over a 12 page full colour booklet.
