Cool Tube-geekery

The Guardian and TfL – two organisations that do an excellent job of annoying people who ought to be annoyed – have embarked on a very cool project: they\’ve produced a version of the Tube map that features 20th century music instead of stations.

As with Simon Patterson\’s The Great Bear, each line represents a common theme. Unlike the Great Bear, however, intersections on the map feature cross-genre artists – so Bjork is on the intersection of avant-garde, jazz, pop, electronica and soul, while the Clash are on the intersection of rock and reggae. Good effort, overall.

    I like that a lot. I laughed out loud at the notion of a DJ Shadow and RZA line. Great stuff.
