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.

For: DPD: 002 - Back Against the Wall Songs

Goddamn. If there is a more literal "back against the wall" scenario than this I don't know what the hell it would be. You're a cripple, you're stuck in a stranger's basement, it's dark and the place is flooding with cold water. This song makes me imagine a shriveled up, emaciated Dave Yow (lead singer) feeling his way around the walls of a "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" style basement to find a way, any fucking way, to get out. Meanwhile the rest of the band is probably upstairs, wearing overalls, laughing their asses off, having their way with some lost coeds.
