On this DiS boards this week people have been sharing various mash-ups which allow you to find out a little more about your listening. Here are the results of two apps I checked out [yes, this might be about the most default blog nerdism I've ever posted but I bet some of you go away and do this on your own stats, even if you don't post it below].

'Fitting in' with the DiS group?

The similarity between user drownedinsound and group DiS is high, at 93.79%

Does your taste fit in with DiS?

Oh and this site also makes you a little tag-'cloud' of your taste. Here's mine... (I wish shitty funk bands who send me their music could see this)

Please Read This If You Post Me/DiS stuff


This is a brief update from to inform you (especially PR people, bands and labels) that for the next few weeks we're not receiving any CDs/Vinyl in the post as we're between offices and also because we want to try and see how it would be if we decided to become more eco-friendly on a permanent basis.

So, until further notice...


We may provide you with a new address in a few weeks but we want to see how this new environmentally friendly approach works out. In the meantime, use the wonderful powers of the web to send us stuff digitally or contact relevant individual writers for their postal addresses:

Thank you,

Founder/Editor of DiS

* = these addresses to remove include Junction Mews, Chilworth Mews, some Unit in Ladbroke Grove, some Unit in S.London and Palatine Road... we've moved around a lot and some people seem to still have very wrong addresses for us and we apologise if you have the incorrect address... We're considering setting up post-forwarding and will collect any items you may have sent in past few days, in the coming days.
