This is your outpost online to talk with fellow fans about music of any genre or era. Whether you want to discuss the best bands from South Sudan or Southampton, this is the place for you. There are no real rules or restrictions, just be nice to each other.


From sandwiches to fish puns via pub quiz team names, the DiS social boards are an alternative universe filled with irreverent chat about everything and nothing. Dive in.

For Musicians

Many musicians use these forums, and in an increasingly complex and self-sufficient world, we thought a place to share knowledge, ask questions, and improve our collective understanding of an industry in constant transition this forum would be useful.


Talk about TV shows or films or books or geek out about gaming or internet culture or board games or general popular & unpopular culture… Gang of Four fans especially welcome.

News & Politics

This is the place for civil discussion about what’s happening in the world (and known universe).


Sports chat of all kinds goes in here.
