random music recommendations.
© 2002 Jamie Zawinski <jwz@jwz.org>

Once night in July, Ashley and Susan and I sat around at their house getting good and liquored up and talking trash while I took them on a musical tour. The highlights of this tour were mostly things I've discovered in the last two or three years, plus a smattering of, ``You haven't heard of _____? How is that even possible?'' Those would be the older ones. Anyway, I saved a copy of the playlist, and here it is. As your attorney, I recommend you familiarize yourself with these bands. There will be a quiz later. The ordering here started out alphabetical, then drifted as vodka-infused conversational associations dictated.

I'd include MP3s here, except that would be illegal, so for that you're on your own. The online record stores probably have clips of most of them.

I am sad to report that extremely close to none of this music ever gets played at my club, the DNA Lounge. (There are a handful of exceptions, but "mostly never.") Aside from live shows, the only thing that gets people to actually show up in sufficient numbers is that retreaded 70s disco known as ``House.''
