Party Day - Glasshouse LP
Here's another long forgotten wave band. Party Day were from Barnsley (same city as The Danse Society) but I don't know when they actually formed but I guess around 1981. Their 1st 7" 'Row The Boat Ashore', was released in 1983. In 1984, the band released another 7" called 'The Spider'. Next one is the 'Glasshouse' 12". This record was issued on Rouska Records, contrary to all the other records that were self-released.
The 'Glasshouse' LP was issued in 1985 and it's a great record IMHO.
Party Day released another album 'Simplicity' in 1986 before falling apart.
There is a Party Day fanpage here.
