Get Lonely, Win Some Discs

In the Chicago Metromix, Scott Solter, producer of the Mountain Goats' new album, Get Lonely, had this to say about the songwriting on the record:

"When he (John Darnielle) sent me the demos it was pretty scary how personal it seemed. It struck me that he was writing from the point of someone who had been abandoned and is losing love and deeply anguished by it."

To honor its release, and make a few readers happy, I felt a contest would be appropriate to find the loneliest LHB readers and give them copies of the album (along with some other goodies).

The prizes:

4 winners will each receive a prize pack containing:

The Mountain Goats: Get Lonely [cd]
The Mountain Goats: Get Lonely [lp]
The Mountain Goats: The Sunset Tree [cd]
The Mountain Goats: Tallahassee [cd]
The Mountain Goats: We Shall All Be Healed [cd]

4 runners-up will each receive:

The Birthday Party: Hits [cd]
Mojave 3: Puzzles Like You [cd]
Pixies: Doolittle (reissue) [lp]

The rules are simple. In the comments to this post, use your creative license and finish this sentence (from the song, "Woke Up New"), "On the morning when I woke up without you for the first time..."

Feel free to watch the video to see how John Darnielle finished it for inspiration.

The winner will be announced next Thursday, entries will be accepted until midnight CST, September 20th. Good luck.

Entries are now closed. The winners will be announced the afternoon of September 21st.
