That same year Glo-Worm released Wishing Well, another single but this time put out by Slumberland Records. In 1996, after the members decided to call it quits, K Records got together all their odds and ends and concluded the Glo-Worm story with a CD compilation Glimmer [KLP054]. All members are still making music today. Review from AMG: Pam Barry, whose many activities include co-editing Chickfactor magazine and singing in the bands Black Tambourine and Belmondo, is the vocalist for the charming pop trio Glo-Worm. Glimmer collects the band's various 7" singles and compilation contributions, including a cover of "Friday I'm in Love" from a Cure tribute album.
Glo-Worm's light, strummy bubblegum is comparable to Courtney Love (the band, not the person), or -- going back even farther in the pop tradition -- Patience & Prudence, the whispery sister duo of the '50s. That this appealing, accessible, and very traditional pop music was considered alternative says something about the marketing of music in the '90s. In any case, Glimmer is a pleasant and breezy must-have for devotees of twee pop. Read more on Last.fm.
