It was actually this interest in letting people access different kinds of quality, non-mainstream music that led me to be a DJ for a few years around the turn of the century.



Hi Retro,

Being a DJ must have been a lot of fun !

Metta,

Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

A bit of variation here from the predominantly indie and synth stylings of much of the countdown... it's my favourite reggae singer, Johnny Clarke.

So far the list has been great..... but Morrissey and the Smiths did nothing for me. I always thought that they tried to be too much like Joy Division. Morrissey was too whiny for me. Great music so far though.
