Comment:

The 2007 "Year in the Making" Series turns it's sights on those things, far less sunny. Collecting abrasive neo-no-wave, industrial ambient, dark ambient, noise rock (and the like); this is, indeed, a sinister stew. And, as per usual, a "shout out" is in order. This time for the ridiculous, the hilarious, the Oh-my-God-I-almost-drove-off-the-road-laughing-when-I-heard-this-on-the-news worthy: (brace yourselves, folks)-----------------------------------------------------The Argentinean Gnome"Petrified locals in the Argentine town of General Guemes are living in fear inside their homes at night after a string of sightings involving a mysterious and highly freaky `creature' resembling a gnome."No joke" : Local teenager Jose Alvarez filmed the "gnome" on his phone when he was hanging with his friends in a poorly lit street in the town. He said that it wears a pointy hat and walks sideways like a crab."Suddenly we heard something - a weird noise as if someone was throwing stones," Mr Alvarez was quoted in London's Sun Newspaper."We looked to one side and saw that the grass was moving."To begin with we thought it was a dog but when we saw this gnome-like figure begin to emerge we were really afraid."Interestingly, the video cuts as soon as the teens let out a deep shreak when realizing what they are seeing. The report appearing in the Sun newspaper does not stipulate what the teens did in the aftermath. [see video (if you dare): HERE]-----------------------------------------------------Unofficial reports also indicate that all sightings of this creepy gnome is generally accompanied by the faint sounds found on this MIX.Please note, I have no knowledge of this individual, nor do I condone his actions. But, I do applaud his taste in music.

Ah, I see what you've done here Chris. Tried to trick us AotMers - but I know NONE of these bands exist. Ha! Caught you out..
Oh, wait. I've heard of Liars and Throbbing Gristle. Oh, and there's a link. I should never have doubted you. Well, time to educate myself then....

I've read about the proverbial Menace to Society...
...but this one's a 'Menace' for Society. Excellent, Herr Gnome (Argentinean or otherwise).

I am downloading it right now, but I am going to venture the guess that track 10 isn't a Harry Nilsson cover. It looks really good, and I looking forward to listening to it!

Very nice stuff here, gnomie. I love that Gowns disc. One of my favorites of last year. Still need to get around to hearing the Sightings rekkid, but I've heard good things (same with Angels of Light). Anyways, this looks brilliant, as usual.
