mr Gnome

Monday, November 9, 2009

The music of mr. Gnome (Nicole Barille and Sam Meister) has been described as utilizing elements of AltRock, Metal, Post Punk, and Prog, but land in a realm of their own making, crafting a compelling sonic-psychedelic melange of indie rock.

Since their conception in 2005, the Cleveland duo has released two EPs, receiving wide-ranging and honorable comparisons to Massive Attack, PJ Harvey, Tool, Portishead, Cat Power, Pelican, Death From Above 1979, Bjork and Blonde Redhead.

Their third cd, Heave Yer Skeleton, was just released (November 2009) with a free download of the single, Slow Side, on MySpace.

Regarding the band's name, I saw this on their blog: "I guess it probably wasn't a good idea to name our band after a recurring character from my acid trips." and it endears me to them even more. ha! But let me also add that there is a lot of 'tongue in cheek' on their blog so don't take that comment literally! I like these guys.

The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror VIII


It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
