Hammer Stories - Practice Shmacktice - Part 1
A new tale about a little local band in Upstate NY in the early 1980s
Here’s the first page of a multi-page comic coming to you this month which continues the stories about HAMMER, that little local band in Upstate NY in the Early 1980s.
In this chapter, we find out about practice spaces. A good space in which to practice your musical craft is hard to come by, but is even harder to find if you’re in a Rock Band.
The boys in HAMMER (Steve, Eddie O.,Cubby, Mark and Dewey) found this to be the case, and from what I hear from the young bands on the street, this is still true today.
Stay tuned for more “Pactice Shmacktice” coming to your email inbox as quickly as I can pump these pages out. Until then, please feel free to share this comic with friends or leave a comment.
