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:

Endless Fall
by: Lydia Lunch
from: Shotgun Wedding

Picked By: diamond
For: DPD: 020 - After 19 Discs I Can't Believe These Guys Haven't Made It!

It's almost shocking to me that Lydia hasn't made it to a disc yet. Although she makes a guest appearance on Death Valley '69, used on the Serial Killer Soundtrack, nobody has used a Lydia Lunch song.
I've always pictured Lydia as the throaty chanteuse playing out her days in a David Lynchian dive bar. Not because she grew up in the little Lynch town, but because her car broke down about a mile up the road and she's been trying to earn enough money to pay for its repair by singing in the run-down little club. Every day telling herself the same lie, "I'll make enough money to get out of this place soon." In the meantime she observes the off-kilter town's folk who drift in and out of the club night after night, and slowly she's becoming one of them.
