The methodology was classic alt-dj, ping-ponging back and forth, with first a Zappa, then a Beefheart and then a wildcard of our own choosing, so that we would have equal chances at both of the main artists along with input on the wildcards. Mini-themes eventually developed, from heroin to Jesus to (literal) assholes and others that we don't even realize. It may not be definitive, but it certainly was an enlightening experience putting this together over the last couple months.

Enlightening for all of us as well. This is the kind of single-artis tribute I go for.
