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:

Your Uniform (Does Not Impress Me!!!)
by: Atari Teenage Riot
from: 60 Second Wipe Out

Picked By: darpino
For: DPD: 017 - DPD's 15 Most Wanted: Songs about Cops

ATR are a great band to be singing about asshole Cops because in their line-up they represent everyone. In Alec Empire you've got your wimpy white-boy who's smarter than any cop who might try to bully him. In Hanin Elias you've got the underestimated girl who some Cop would probably try to sleaze on while pulling her over. And in Carl Crack you've got the frustration and violence of the streets. Why is it that everyone has problems with Cops? I thought they were supposed to protect us not bully us. Well, in this track it sounds like ATR has had enough. I love the last bit, where Carl Crack tells the Cops who are senselessly hassling him that he's innocent but if they keep messing with him , he will give them a real reason to be after him.
