Glorious Din - Closely Watched Trains LP


As promised to Fritz Die Spinne, here's the second album of Glorious Din from San Francisco, CA. Sounds somehow different to the first album, 'Leading Stolen Horses' posted on Fritz Die Spinne. 'Leading Stolen Horses' is probably their finest moment but their second one is an enjoyable listen too. Some people compare it to REM probably 'cos it's more melodic and of the use of acoustic guitars, but it still sounds desolate. The Joy Division influence still shines through.
It's a very long album and I ripped it at 256 kbps so I had to split the file.

Hello kevin, had this before but I think the server's too busy. If the same happens within a few hours, I'll upload the file ASAP.

Hi,
first i wanna say that I love your blog. Great Post-Punk stuff with many records I never heard of before.
2. Do you know this song or the band? Link: http://rattenjule.blogspot.com/2007/09/anybody-know-this-song.html
Would be nice if you could help me. Somebody told me it sounds a bit like "The Wake" and it seems to be released on a compilation

Hello folks, already upped the file 2 times with the same problem. I already made contact with Mediafire to report the problem. I can try to upload again.

But of course we would like to have it. Try sharebee. At least you can load much more servers in a easier way. By the way, great job you are doing!!!

Desperately need "Stolen Horses" from Glorious Din. I have "Closely Watched Trains". I used to have both of these albums, before my ex-wife pilford the goods. If anyone has the download of "Leading Stolen Horses" by Glorious Din. Please email me @ travis_crabb1969@hotmail.com
Peace and much thanks

You asked for information on the Insight compilation, but Opa-Loka couldn't provide it, because he doesn't have it (he found it for me).
Anyway, as you already know, there are no catalogue numbers or anything similar on the covers, spines or labels of Insight releases.
The etches on vinyl of the Insight compilation are:
L-30479 (on all four sides) and JVP-1 to 4 on each side. I think the first one could be used as catalogue number (judging by the similar etched no. on the Spahn Ranch record).
I hope these were useful.

the lead singer of this band, Eric Cope, allegedly went to Sri Lanka to join the Tamil Tigers and hasn't been heard from since.

Good stuff... bought this on vinyl in New York in 1988. Haven't heard it for a long time since I haven't had a record player in 20 years. Thanks!
