WHAT IS A D.J.? According to Wise Geek a DJ, Deejay or DISC JOCKEY is a person who plays musical recordings for a living. This may take place in a variety of venues. Therefore, the exact role of the DJ may vary depending on the setting or the purpose of the music. Actually, there are different definitions and kinds of DJ that you could search but I just wanna tell you guys that being a DJ is not something to brag about or even shout to the world especially if you're those I termed as "wannabes jolly be DJs". Funny thing is that this wannabes are those who can't seem to stop showing off their skills. Ha Ha Ha!! Well, I could use the Tagalog word "MAYAYABANG". Like what I've stated before "SUPPORT PINOY DJs......with GOOD ATTITUDES and most especially THE HUMBLE ONES." That I think you guys will agree. But again...you might not. Ha Ha Ha!! If in my previous blogpost I've stated these IMITATORS/COPYCATS are GUILTY....as CHARGED then for this blogpost of mine THE PUNISHMENT/PENALTY is "HANG THE DJ". Ha Ha Ha!! In simple TAGALOG...... "BITAY". He He He!!
Here's my "HANG THE DJ" CD:
The Inner Sleeve is pretty cool with photos of the NEW WAVE ARTISTS and LYRICS of the SONGS were included.
Well, I'll just include here in my blogpost the 16 NEW WAVE/PUNK ARTISTS that were featured in this great compilation:
1) THE SMITHS
2) AZTEC CAMERA
3) THE OCEAN BLUE
6) PETER SCHILLING
8) ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN
9) HOWARD JONES
11) LOU REED
It's remembering the good old days of The BEST of NEW WAVE PUNK and The REST!!
There was also a Promotional Sampler CD release of this compilation but with only 5 tracks from 5 Artists/Bands I've just mentioned namely RAMONES, THE REPLACEMENTS, PETER SCHILLING, AZTEC CAMERA, and of course THE SMITHS. The difference was that this Sampler CD contains two different songs from THE SMITHS and AZTEC CAMERA. The Main Original Compilation Release have "This Charming Man" and "Somewhere In My Heart" while the Promo has "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" and "Still On Fire". The Promo CD also mentioned 89 DMZ's WAVE 180.
