dpd project [Full List of Discs] [FAQ] [Find A Song or Band] [Message Board]      

Welcome to DPD!

The DPD Project is a thematic mix-CD project created by music geeks and best friends Chris Diamond, Chris Prokop, and Michael Darpino.

Each CD in the project has a theme that ties the songs on it together. For every theme we each pick five songs that we feel best represent it. The collected fifteen songs are then mixed together in alternating order based on our last names. The songs that end up on DPD are meant to be the very best songs for their particular theme.

We write liner notes for each song to explain why we picked it for that theme. The project has grown into a sort of musical memoir over the years since music has been and still is such a huge part of our lives.

Random DPD Pick:

Woodpecker From Mars
by: Faith No More
from: The Real Thing

Picked By: darpino
For: DPD: 039 - Words Can't Describe: Instrumentals That Leave Us Speechless

As time goes on I often worry that Faith No More will only be remembered as the band that brought Mike Patton into the national spotlight. As all true FNM fans will attest that's just not the case. Their were a couple other guys in the band who also had names and they were a group of damn fine musicians. Jim Martin, Bill Gould, Mike Bordin, and Roddy Bottum (the last great keyboardist) make their mark in history with this amazing instrumental. No vocals, no rock idol at the mic, just 100% pure instrumental ass kicking!
