GLIDE Disappear Here 1996


by Andy Kellman
Not to be confused with Will Sergeant's solo project of the same name, Glide was an Australian rock band that released three albums and nine singles/EPs during their existence in the '90s. Formed in Sydney in 1991 and led by well-regarded songwriter William Arthur, the group referred to their hard-hitting and melodic sound as "wall of harmony." Known for their powerful shows, the group attained a cult following in their native country but struggled to gain notoriety elsewhere despite critical raves. Prior to releasing a fourth album, Arthur died in 1999 of a heroin overdose. A five-song session from 1998 was released as Last in 2000, which also included a number of homespun four-track recordings.
