Ello guys,

I've come across a fun little game that's worth a giggle. Here's my imaginary album from my imaginary band:



To make your own random imaginary band:

1 - Click this link to open a random wikipedia article - the first article you get will be the name of your band.

2 -Click here to get a random quotation from QuotationsPage. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to flickr and click on "explore the last seven days" or click here. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use photoshop or whatever to put it all together.

5 - Post your random imaginary band images here smile

Sometimes you get weird coincidences, other times it's just plain silly - but like I say, it's worth a giggle smile

Cheers,
Arktic.

Just the kind of 1970s easy listening smooth jazz found in the CD collections of dads all round the world I imagine. Sax solo anyone?

Mine strangely go together, in a cold, militaristic way. Did a little extra tonal color in Photoshop, but nothing big. Judging from the cover, they're not my kind of music. biggrin

I'm thinking some kind of avante garde, pretentious prog rock, with a kind of faux-British singer. Clearly they'd be singing about the evils of colonial empire building.

Either that or some super trippy acid house trancey crap.

I busted out laughing at the Mitch Hedberg joke. So much that I started listening to his album again. Great game!
