PostSubject: The Wikipedia Band Game   Fri Apr 17, 2009 10:09 am

Because I'm trying to avoid doing work... OK, here goes.

Click the "random article" button on the Wikipedia main page. Whatever comes up will be your band name. Click the random button again. That'll be your album name. Click that again for a song name. Keep clicking the random button until you have enough songs for a full album. Who knows, you might get some ideas from it.

Here's what I got:

Band - GraphiCon

Album - The Spooky Bunch

1. Freefonix
2. KILR-FM
3. Andy Katz
4. Mauroux, Gers
5. A Fishing Rod For My Grandpa
6. Sokoľany (feat. Alaparma Baldo)
7. Bewafaa
8. La Jornada
9. National Defence University in Warsaw
10. Oleg Karavayev
11. Two Shoes
12. Command Post Tango

I don't like the electro/dance feel coming from this 'album'.

Band Name - Glasair Aviation

Album - Sergiy Matveyev

1. Norman Arthur Weigmann
2. Bachiniva
3. Zuhra Osmani
4. Ohio State Route 519
5. Daisies and Beatrice

7. Gul Agha
8. USS Strong (DD-467)
9. Tansila Department
10.USS Dunlin (AM-361)

Your band name is pretty sick ktp; I could see 'Glasair Aviation' headlining festivals, even if there may be some questionably named songs (Gul Agha!!!) on the set list!

More of a low key number that one I think. Not one that my audience- a bunch of ravers fuelled by illegal narcotics- will be waving their glowsticks in the air to.

Yeah, closer's a bit questionable... first single would have to be 'Swiss Super League 1958-1959'.

It's good to see this being revived! I could see your band being shortened to 'CSE' Vibes... Coolmcr's track 'The Showing Up of Corporal Jones' is a good one too!

Maybe we should intoduce a new 'rule' (or is 'guideline' better?) regarding peoples names as 'tracks'- say you're only allowed 1 persons name in your track listing. Personally, I find non-peoples names a lot funnier for tracks. What does everyone think?

I like your first song, I can see that being about being screwed by the legal system. Why anyone would write a song about that, I don't know but hey...

Are we gonna do the album covers for these as well?
Go to http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days and use the 3rd photo for the cover. Some of them can't be downloaded and will just come up as "spaceball.gif" or something along those lines. In that case, just refresh the link posted and try again! Unless you're clever enough to get around it. Anyway... here's mine.

6. Battle of Golymin
