A project ‘war room’ can be a pretty dreary place, so what better way to jazz things up a bit and get those juices flowing than a bit of a music. Unfortunately for some of my colleagues I’m the only one with a music collection with me and the on-site contacts to refresh it, allowing me almost unmitigated control of the playlist.
I’m doing quite well in offending people so far. The Chemical Brothers have been described as “noise” while the Beastie Boys gained the moniker of “monkey music” and there’s a whole project full of people left to offend. My chillout selection (Lamb, Massive Attack, DJ Shadow and Air) has only gained a few sneers, but nothing strongly negative yet, which is a shame.
The Foo Fighters are going down well and somewhat surprisingly, so is Korn.
