Airborne Toxic Event - Airborne Toxic Event - Cd
Taking their name from a chapter in Don DeLillo’s classic post-modern campus novel White Noise, resolutely independent Los Angeles quintet The Airborne Toxic Event (hereafter referred to as TATE) had a unexpected and unlikely US hit when the gloriously self-conscious "Sometime Around Midnight" was picked up for a television soundtrack. A sloppy epic of self-abnegation, criticised by some for lyrics little deeper than a greeting card verse, it sure sounds like the late-night thoughts of a man feeling unworthy of himself let alone the girl who keeps treading all over him.
'An extraordinarily funny book on a serious subject, effortlessly combining social comedy, disaster, fiction and philosophy. hilariously, and grimly, successful' Daily Telegraph Jack Gladney is the creator and chairman of Hitler studies at the College-on-the-Hill. This is the story of his absurd life; a life that is going well enough, until a chemical spill from a rail car releases an 'Airborne Toxic Event' and Jack is forced to confront his biggest fear - his own mortality.
