Apparently the first track on the album is called "Navezuelas"
The next generation of dadaist rock band memes, stolen from strange_complex. She got a groovy 70's easy-listening band, but I got a new-age vehicle with didgeridoos.

Instructions:
  1. The first article title on the Wikipedia Random Articles page is the name of your band.

  2. The last four words of the very last quotation on the Random Quotations page is the title of your album.

  3. The third picture in Flickr's Interesting Photos From The Last 7 Days will be your album cover.

  4. Use your graphics programme of choice to throw them together, and post the result.

This, this, and a fragment of a Carl Sandburg quote give rise to the next big thing in trickling water and pan pipes:



It seems we're trying to make some kind of deep political statement about the rainforest or some damn thing.

I like this one, but can't figure out what the correct links would be to direct people if I repost it in my journal. Can you tell me the links?

Glad to oblige:

Wikipedia Random Articles: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random

The Random Quotation page: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3

Photos Posted to Flickr in the Past Seven Days: http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/

All of these are randomized and will give you different pages if you refresh. I didn't cheat though -- my page loads were excellent as is :)

Ditto those thanks.

Here's mine:


Actually, I'll post it to the journal as well.

looks like 80s love ballads?

Or possibly early 90s, on 4AD.

agreed!

HAHA WHAT.

I am too lazy to MS Paint these things together, but my band is Sviatoslav II of Kiev and the album title is Do Them With Enthusiasm and the cover is a guy in a red shirt sitting by himself in an empty red theatre. I think it is a Casiotone for the Painfully Alone type album of sissy indie pop.

Ha, I am loving this meme! I've yet to see anyone come up with an album I would actually buy, but I swear I've seen some of them kicking around in charity shops. Especially yours. :-p

I'd totally consider buying cameo's album below! Exotic, yet quirky, like what Muslimgauze might have sounded like if Bryn Jones had had a sense of humour. :)

I'm going to ignore that "especially yours" dig, since clearly you do not respect my MUSICAL JEANYUS.

Actually, the second after I posted that comment, I thought, "Shyeah - right next to mine". So we are united in the popular appreciation of our work.

Re: Long time reader, first time poster

If you are who I think you are, we're not strangers after all. If you used to go by K., then I used to go by ASG. :)

Re: Long time reader, first time poster

This is a good one!

[Concerning formerly-ASG's comment on your stranger-ness or lack thereof, a light dawns. Hello!]

I keep coming back to this meme; here's my latest:

Would be great to stick to CC photos

Love the meme, and love the album covers resulting! Sort of thing we need a LOLcat generator type thing for... or maybe Skitch would do the job. I shall go try forthwith and put the results on my blog.

Please, though, could people stick to using photos that have been licensed under Creative Commons to allow reuse? If the photo says "All Rights Reserved", or has a Creative Commons "No Derivative Works" licence, then move on to the next photo until you find one that does. I love memes like this, and I love Flickr, and I feel it's only right to respect the original photographer's wishes regarding whether they want their photos reused or not. Plus it's nice to support Creative Commons!

Sorry if that sounds a bit like i'm nitpicking.

Re: Would be great to stick to CC photos

Fair enough. I'll keep that in mind the next time I go trawling through Flickr for meme-unition. :)
