Glaxo Babies were a post-punk band based in Bristol, England. The foursome was initially vocalist Rob Chapman, guitarist/vocalist Dan Catsis (ex-Pop Group), drummer Geoff Alsopp, and bassist Tom Nichols. They released the This Is Your Life EP in 1979; by the time of the Christine Keeler single months later, a few changes to the lineup were made. Most significantly, Charles Llewelyn took over for Alsopp on drums and Tony Wrafter (another ex-Pop Group member) added saxophone. Chapman then left, and the remaining members recorded the entirety of 1980's Nine Months to the Disco, their debut LP for Heartbeat, within the span of a single day. For the following Limited Entertainment EP (also released in 1980), Glaxo Babies temporarily hooked up with the Y label. And finally, Put Me on the Guest List, yet another 1980 release, collected demos of the band's Chapman era. They apparently broke up at some point after its release; Catsis and Wrafter became part of Maximum Joy. In the mid-'80s, Chapman and Catsis re-formed Glaxo Babies with Llewelyn on drums. They were together for several years, the results eventually appearing on the compilation The Porlock Factor: Psych Drums and Other Schemes 1985-1990. ~ Andy KellmanPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
