Noise Addicts has shared the rules to a fun way to name your band, choose your album cover art and name your album, with a little bit of randomness, and some help from Wikipedia, Flickr and Quotationspage.
Here are the rules:
- Go to Wikipedia and hit “random” and the first article you get is the name of your band.
- Go to “Random Quotations”. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page will be the title of your new album.
- Go to Flickr and click on “Explore the Last Seven Days”. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
They’ve got a library of album covers with the post, and they are actually on a par with a lot of actual releases.
If you give it a try, leave a comment with what you came up with!
I gave it a try, and came up with the album “brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems”, by Revolution.
Here’s the album cover:
