Comprising users Sally Cato (vocals), Bart Lewis (acoustic guitar), Roger Street (acoustic guitar), J.D. Malo (bass), and Matt Steluto (drums), Smashed Gladys 1st came together within the middle-’80s, gigging frequently at such regional locations as Danceteria, the Kitty Golf club, and L’Amour, before issuing a self-titled debut recording independently (which presented a spirited edition from the T. Rex nugget “Metallic Expert”).
