September 25 : New release from SMASHED GLADYS featuring 4 songs from the Gene Simmons‘ sessions
SMASHED GLADYS : Raw (2022)From : cgcmrockradio.com
Out on 7th October through Golden Robot Records will be RAW by Smashed Gladys. The Raw album is a collection of some of the works that were initially the demos for a never released third record. Those songs have been recently mixed by the band’s first producer, Mark Dearnley-whose credits include a wide range from AC/DC to Paul McCartney – and John Catto – the guitarist from Toronto’s infamous punk/power pop band, The Diodes. The album rounds out with an additional 4 songs from the
Gene Simmons‘ sessions.

ABOUT SMASHED GLADYS
Born from the members of the vibrant Toronto punk scene, Smashed Gladys helped to craft a legendary period of New York City rock. Lead singer Sally Cato started as a singer in the art rock band The Concordes, while guitarist Bart Lewis did a brief stint with Canada’s most dangerous band, The Viletones, before departing for NYC. Soon after relocating to Gotham, Sally & Bart met songwriter Tommy Boyce, who (along with his partner Mickey Hart) had coined most of The Monkees‘ songs.

Under Boyce’s guidance, the group began rehearsing at a well-known studio in midtown Manhattan. SG started playing venues in and around the NYC area, during which time they met Gene Simmons, who offered them a production/management deal. The band’s original 4 members: Sally Cato (vocals), Bart Lewis (guitar), Matt Stellutto (drums) and Ken Fox (bass) from Toronto’s Raving Mojo’s, Jason and the Scorchers and The Fleshtones, along with the addition of Hilly Michaels, drummer from the Ian Hunter band – went into the studio and recorded close to an album’s worth of material
produced by Gene Simmons.

Four of the songs from those sessions are being released now, for the first time ever. Simmons captured the personality and raw grittiness of the band perfectly, and by the end of 1984, SG were in the UK recording their first album,
 Smashed Gladys, with Mark Dearnley at the producer helm. Smashed Gladys returned to the states and began touring and doing opening slots with The Dead Boys, Van Zant, Nazareth, Ace Frehley, Cheap Trick, Poison, Rick Derringer, Blue Oyster Cult, Crocus and others. It was during this feverish period that they established the infamous Wednesday night series at The Cat Club.

SSmashed Gladys caught the attention of Elektra Records A&R rep Micheal Alago. In 1986 they were signed by Elektra VP, Howard Thompson. The band played a signing gig to a packed house at one of the first venues they played in NYC – CBGB’s. Elektra picked up the rights to the first record and then sent the band into the studio to work on their next record, Social Intercourse, recorded in NYC with Rick Browdie and in L.A with Michael Wagner doing additional tracking and mixing.

Smashed Gladys was making demos for their third record when they received offers from producers John Paul Jones and Mick Ronson. They went with Mick Ronson and began pre-production, but Ronson fell ill. The Band was then picked up by Teddy Slatus, Johnny Winter’s manager and label.

Tragically, Smashed Gladys' third bass player, Mark Sliker, then died from a drug overdose. Following the trials and tribulations, Sally left the music business and returned to being a graphic artist. On May 19, 2020, Sally Cato passed away.
