I'm with the band

Ever dreamed of being in a band? Me too. That's why when I found this post on a random bulletin board I got very excited indeed. For those who don't want to click:

GET A BAND, DEBUT ALBUM AND COVER ART IN SECONDS:

1 - Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Random quotations: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3. The last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to flickr's "explore the last seven days" http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/. Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Put it all together, that's your debut album.


So fans, say hello to your new favourite band TENNESSEE STATE ROUTE 18, with their hot new album So Little Useless Information. I think the cover is pretty great, too:


What band are you in? Leave your info in the comments. Maybe you can play support for us one time.

  2. Support you? Who needs a second-rate gig like that when you're a member of "History of Dutch Orthography". In fact, we've just released our 7th album. You might have heard of it. "For It is Bald Behind". Here's the cover art.

  9. My band, Gulfport, will happily play some toooooons from our newest album "put in the hours" in support... frankly we can take as many gigs as we can get. The album cover hasn't been moving many units.

  11. Northumberland County will be playing a one-time-only gig at the Governor Hindmarsh next Thursday night.

    "I Cannot Live Without", the band's second album, is being heralded as an "awakening of black soul swirling within some deep nashville twang".

    The album can be purchased online here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/blahblahblah/2524602408/

    Be there or be a triangle.

  13. I think my band, Union County Industrial Railroad, would be perfect to support you. It will be a good time to flog our new album, Believe in all Possibilities, too.

  14. While I love the title of our debut album - "Try going to sleep" - I am worried that our band name might not be catchy enough. "JPL Horizons On-Line Ephemeris System". What do you think?

  19. I couldn't believe my alliterative luck when I discovered my awesome band name. Be prepared to be dazzled by trying-so-hard-to-sound-deep-and-intelligent rockers Cedalion, with their pretentious debut album Centrality in the Cosmos. Cover artwork can be viewed here.
