The Glass Family: Brace for the Obscure (60s rock)! — January 31, 2022

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.

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. . . .”
