The Word Is Out is the final release for Gloria Mundi, and for me a better album which hints of whats to come next from Eddie and Sunshine.

Gloria Mundi was an English early punk/gothic rock band. The name comes from the Latin meaning for "the glory of the world". This could be a reference to the phrase "Sic transit gloria mundi", meaning "this is how the glory of the world passes". The members of Gloria Mundi included Eddie Maelov (real name Eddie Francis), their male vocalist, and Sunshine Patteson (now working as Sunshine Gray), their female vocalist and keyboard player, cc played tenor saxophone.
Gloria Mundi - Nikos Papatakis - 1976 - France. Gloria Mundi, Let’s Pretend (That We’re Alive), The Word is Out, 1979. I was reading Mick Mercer talking about how in the late ‘70s, he and likeminded folks gravitated toward the artier, more theatrical end of punk like the Ants and Gloria Mundi, and then moved on to Southern Death Cult, Sex Gang Children etc. who basically stepped into the same niche in the early '80s. This seems to have caused people today to try to claim the Ants and Gloria Mundi as somehow 'goth,’ when they simply aren’t. The name comes from the Latin meaning for "the glory of the world" Contents. Following the departure of Pete Vas, guitarist Kirby (ex-Stretch), joined the band for a period and played on the second album The Word Is Out. Following Vas's solo venture, he then went into a musical collaboration with Alasdair Murray. Collectively they were known as Bete Noire and produced an unreleased EP called Langham Street in 1981.

After Gloria Mundi disbanded Eddie Maelov and Sunshine Patteson went on to produce music for Survival Records as Eddie and Sunshine. cc contributed a memorable saxophone solo to the Ultravox song "Hiroshima Mon Amour", and Nigel Ross Scott went on to play bass with Bruce Woolley and The Camera Club and Re-Flex, a 1980s pop group.
Birk will join us on the road this November, and we hope to see some of you out there. Also with us, as usual, best FOH in the West, Chris Fullard. A physical version is likely later. There's simply no time to prepare one right now, we have a tour to get ready for. But please keep an eye on the House of Mythology.
