How a boy from the Sri Lankan jungle formed the greatest post-punk band you’ve never heard… Fronted by an intense singer with an oblique songbook and a mysterious past Glorious Din were unlike any other group to emerge from San Francisco’s ‘80s underground.
With singer Eric Cope, the chosen persona of a Joy Division-obsessed Sri Lankan boy who travelled halfway around the world to follow his punk dream. Glorious Din released “Leading Stolen Horses” on their own Insight in April 1985. The album stayed close to the sound they achieved live, conjuring something intense and atmospheric.
