80 Minute History Lesson Challenge!
« on: 11 Jun 2005, 22:23 »

Okay, here's a challenge for everyone.  

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create a track listing for an 80-minute mix CD to present the "history" of what gets called "Indie" music today.  

Why am I asking?  Well, for selfish reason-- I'm looking for new old bands to check out, but I thought it'd be a fun exercise... Take it back to wherever you want, and get to the present day.  But keep it under 80 minutes, and please don't attack anybody else's choices; just post your mix, some comments on it if you like, and play nice. :)
