338) The Glass Family — “House of Glass”
Here is a second helping of Glass (see #309). Light in the Attic Records says that “‘House of Glass’ is the impressive opening track, full of tension and convincing vocals over some 13th Floor Elevators style grooves”. (https://lightintheattic.net/releases/1758-electric-band). And Nathan Ford writes that:
Why more people don’t rave about this major label gem is a complete mystery to me. Lead single “House of Glass” has a menacing Doors vibe and almost sounds like a prototype for eighties neo-psychedelia in general. It’s reason enough to pick up a copy, but there’s plenty more to be enjoyed within including excursions into folky and country terrain and heaps of massive fuzz guitar leads.http://active-listener.blogspot.com/2014/08/40-obscure-psychedelic-rock-pop-albums.html
Yeah, the song does sound like it was written in the ‘80’s or 90’s. Change the title to “House of Trash” or “House of Thrash”, and you’ve got a grunge hit!
“This house is made of glass. Come inside, watch it last. In a stormy night or winter day, come inside and with us play. No need to hide in a house of glass. Love can be seen that it’s such a gas. Come inside on a winter’s day. Come inside and with us play. No need to hide in a house of glass. Love can be seen and it’s such a gas. . . .”
