I thought I'd give it a go and make a themed mix and from the looks of it the depression genre is alive and kickin' (no pun intended) here at Art Of The Mix. It's sort of a moral tale. We meet this depressed phantom at the beginning of his descent, a sort of James Dean character with a rebellious streak a mile wide shouting "You're tearing me apart!" Of course things can only get worse for our doomed friend. He navigates through a landscape of institutions, paranoia, and drug abuse. Such a sad end for our angst-ridden buddy. Of course who wouldn't want to go to hell if The Cramps were there? Maybe it's not such a sad tale after all. That is for you, the viewers at home, to decide.
