Interference CD Exchange Part 2: Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Make Me a Match

By extremely popular demand, the Interference CD Exchange will have a sequel, and it's starting now. You may be asking yourself, "Where does Pax get off saying there's going to be a new CD exchange? This is LarryMullen's_POPAngel's deal!" Well, you're right, it sort of is. But I've agreed to help coordinate this CD exchange with her, because a LOT of work was involved in the last one and this promises to be no different.

This CD exchange will work a little differently from the last one, so please read this post VERY carefully before deciding whether or not you'd like to be involved. And anyone who didn't hold up their end of the bargain in the last CD exchange will not be allowed to participate--sorry.

Here's the deal:

Have you ever wanted to discover a new kind of music? Maybe you're interested in a certain genre, like alt.country or deep trance. Maybe you'd like to learn more about music popular in a specific part of the world, like Japanese dance music or Dutch folk tunes. Maybe you're infatuated with a certain band and you'd like a sort of "Unofficial Greatest Hits" compilation, like "Greatest Hits of the White Stripes" or "Some Damn Good Songs by Johnny Cash." OR maybe you want music for a certain mood, like an awesome moping CD or a CD designed specifically for housecleaning.

AND, furthermore, maybe you're an expert in some area of music--maybe you know everything there is to know about Ryan Adams (if you're Bonochick), or you have a master's degree in Javanese gamelan songs. Etc., etc., whatever.

This Interference CD Exchange is designed to match people obsessed with certain kinds of music with other people who WANT to be obsessed with certain kinds of music. It is designed to give people who are experts in given "fields" the chance to show their stuff and create the ultimate compilation CD in that field. Matchmaker, matchmaker, we're going to make you some matches.

Here's what you have to do:

1.) Post in THIS THREAD (NOT the old CD exchange thread).
2.) In your post, state what kind of CD or CDs you would like to receive.
3.) Also state what kind of CD or CDs you would like to make and give to others.
4.) E-mail me at paxetaurora@interference.com with your name and home address. It will be shared only with the people who will be making you CDs. Also indicate whether or not you are willing to ship overseas, and if you are willing to make or receive tapes instead of CDs.
5.) The thread will stay open and stuck for two or three weeks while everyone makes their requests. Then it will be closed in order to make the necessary matches. Once matches are made, it will be reopened for comments and feedback.

DO NOT post your personal contact info. in the thread--post only what CDs you want and what CDs you will make. DO NOT ask for a specific CD, like Pete Yorn's new disc or whatever, because we don't want to appear to be facilitating copyright infringement . This is for customized mix CDs only. You may only request as many CDs as you are willing to make, and you will only have to make as many CDs as you will be receiving. If we can't accommodate a specific request, you'll have the option to make one fewer CD, or make a different one.

With your cooperation and interest, we can make this new Interference CD Exchange a success. I loved making and receiving my CDs last time, and as soon as I can think of ones I'd like to get, I'll be participating in Round Two as well. Happy posting and have fun!

Pax (and LarryMullen's_POPAngel)

Here are some mixes I could make:

1.) I, and a few other people here that I can think of, LOVE Tori Amos. Want a Tori CD? I can do that.
2.) Same goes for Sarah McLachlan.
3.) I'm *really* good at making sexy mixes or sad mixes .

Here are some mixes I'd like to receive:

1.) I'm starting to get into alt.country (thanks partially to MirrorballGirl's CD exchange CD!) and I would love a good mix.
2.) I love Irish traditional music; you can never have too much of that.
3.) I like British trip-hop but I'd like to hear some of it by more underground artists (i.e. no Massive Attack, Portishead, etc.)

I can also do a killer Tori mix, a chick mix, an alt country mix.

I'd love trance, Brit pop, alt country (because there's new stuff I still don't know about even though I can come up with a pretty good mix on my own), or like one of those meggie mixes of stuff I've never heard of

Will ship overseas.

Prefer to receive CDs but can make either.

Thanks for posting this, pax

Will be thinking of mine this weekend. Special credit goes to pax, who thought up the "theme" for this go-round!


**Note: I would also like to stress once more that if you were one of the participants who did not hold up their end of the exchange the last time, you will NOT be allowed to participate in this exchange. I did all I could to accomodate the people having trouble, and still their participants did not receive their CDs. Therefore, we cannot take a chance on you again. **

I'd be happy to send my mix to anybody who didn't get one in the original deal.

I could make L.A. underground indie music, mostly alternative pop... underground/alternative hip hop... grunge... a little classic rock or britpop or punk... AND for those CCMers I've got the cool stuff creme of the crop CCM, fringe artists you might call them but cooler than SCC, DCT, AA... all sorts of CCM, alternative rock, rap, grunge, metal, hard rock, (even some decent) adult contemporary (Believe me, I've been into CCM music for more than 10 years )

What I'd like to receive are:
noise pop (a la yo la tengo, jesus and mary chain, my bloody valentine)
indie pop (dunno any)
britpop (a la blur, radiohead, stone roses, oasis)
experimental post-rock (dunno many)
proto-punk (a la velvet underground)
post-punk (a la joy division, echo&bunnymen, simple minds, u2)

hmmm, let's see...

i could make:
  • duran duran (i know i've got more than headsonsticks )
  • 80s (new wave, that kinda stuff)
  • some 90s stuff like cranberries, sheryl crow, etc.
  • sting/police

and loads others. i've got a ton of cds, loser me even made a list of every cd i own. i've also got tons more mp3s in the same wave.

as for anything i'd want, i'd like stuff in the same vein. i like 80s music, along the new wave/new romantic type stuff. that's how i get into most bands, by mix cds people make me, because i always discover something new where the 80s are concerned.

I can offer a Bruce Springsteen mix or a Talking Heads mix to anyone who doesn't mind receiving tapes rather than CDs.

I would love to get a Johnny Cash mix, a Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds mix, or just a general indie/alternative mix (from the '80s, '90s and/or today). I will accept either CDs or tapes.

media: i can make tapes of more things than i can cds. if i have something on a cd, i can copy it to cd or tape; if i have something on tape then i can only copy it to tape. and i have both cassette and cd players so either work for me.

--can make a punk/punk-ish mix. dropkick murphys, rancid, bad religion, stiff little fingers, the clash, sex pistols (that i can only put on a tape), the jam (also tape only), afi, the business, avail, etc.

--can also do an irish-leaning-more-towards-punk-ish-stuff mix with the pogues, flogging molly, the prodigals, gaelic storm, blood or whiskey, (and dropkick murphys fit on that too)

--not sure if i should mention this, cos i don't know to what extent i could use it, but i do have a college radio station's music library at my disposal to aid in the mix-making, although i can only make casettes from stuff cos i'd have to do the copying while at the station (it can be done though)


what kind of mix would i like...anything pretty much. anything non-rap, non-80s synth-y, non-mainstream-pop and non-country (johnny cash doesn't count as country cos he's cool). that's a lot of non-(blank)s...i know what i don't want, but i don't know what i do want...


willing to ship overseas
