Welcome to All Things Glass Hammer (TAC)

Glass Hammer Chronomonaut
Preorder on September 12.

This morning/today, I have a piece at The American Conservative introducing a 26-year old band as America’s greatest rock band.  Please check it out.  And, note, there’s nothing political in the article, despite the venue.  So, humans of all political persuasions, be not afraid!!!!

Creating Glass Hammer in 1992, long-time friends, Steve Babb and Fred Schendel—who had played in several 80s metal bands—decided to dive into what they loved most: complicated, intricate, baroque, over-the-top rock. At the time of the band’s creation, the term “progressive rock” was more than out of favor, evoking for most the horrors of bloated songs, the wearing of capes, the stabbing of keyboards with knives, and lyrics about Hobbits. Though, if Babb and Schendel had hoped to avoid the “progressive rock” stereotype, they failed miserably. If anything, their music—what they called “fantasy rock,” bringing the speculative and imaginary worlds of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and others to life—was inordinately more nerdy than “progressive rock.”
