The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Sheesh, more pretentiousness than talent! They'll break up after one album, and the only member who'll ever be in another band is the drummer. Who'll also be the drummer in the new band.

Ooo, gloom rock. But with a few upbeat tracks every now and then.

Band name: Charta Oecumenica
Album Title: "Right to the Fruit"
Album Cover: http://www.flickr.com/photos/21034256@N08/2148010265/

Sounds like something Feloni might have slapped together.

Certainly the cover would be appropriate to Feloni.

Band Name: Odelsrett
Album Title: Transform Into a Door
Album cover: A deciduous forest, strung with Christmas-type lights, in a blizzard

Based on the name alone, I was going to say, "Aha, I'm Scandinavian death-metal, am I?" -- but the title and the album cover are leaning me more toward prog-rock.

Band Name: Jubilee
Album Title: Never Scrutinize or Question
Album Cover: Sunset on the San Francisco Bay

Not bad, but I hope the title is meant to be ironic.

I made you a cover. Clearly this band's entire work is drenched in irony.

The title is from a Voltaire quote - "Every man is guilty of the good he didn't do". Not bad, I think.

It's interesting how taking just the last four words of the quote sometimes changes the meaning. Like the ones on Inaki's post:
"lies in human choice" ...A clever play on the double meaning of the word "lies", suggesting that we are all victims of our own self-delusion!
"life, lessen thy meals" ...A stern observation of, um, insert art criticism blather here, sometimes the world throws more at us than we can handle, bla bla bla.

I've done a couple of these before, but what came out this time is, by far, my favorite.



Seems like some sort of neo-alterno/indie/pseudo-prog thing.

I usually don't participate in these, and by the looks of the results (especially darksasami's - wow!), it seems to require more creative talent in the cover art production stage than I have.

However, after clicking on the artwork link (since I didn't know that there was something one could use for a "Random" for Flickr) and having the result come out as something that would make a darn fine album cover imho, I came up with:

Band: Matt Murphy (who also happens to be a blues guitarist, so it worked!)

Album title: "But wish we didn't" (ehhh, I knew I couldn't get a perfect matchup like most of you did).

Album art: an amusement park ride (what are those things called?)

The quote.

I was going to try for the last album meme, using the 3rd picture down as a back cover, but I didn't want to re-use Wikipedia. (it was this picture, which would have been a nice contrast, I think.)

Nope! In fact, I cropped mine.

Great combination of title and image!

Here's mine:

the hampdens - do i know you?

The Hampdens really are a band, which is disappointing in a way, but I really like the combination of the title and the image.
