City of Chrome and Glass

by Atomic Shadow

supported by


Broadcasting Sonic Sculptures from Yesterday's World of Tomorrow.

The album’s theme is the dream of yesterday’s world of tomorrow. During the Atomic Age we believed that by 2014 we would have cities of chrome and glass not just on the Earth. There should have been cities on the Moon and colonies on Mars by now.

This album was first digitally released during the week of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy. November 22, 1963 can be seen as the day when the optimistic world of tomorrow ended. We were never quite so united as a people in the USA after that.

The hope is to capture a bit of that mid 20th century spirit and channel it in to building a better world of tomorrow. With the right direction and planning, who knows? One day we may even be evolved enough to safely those operate flying cars.
