Icon106 Album cover generator

I remember we had a little fun with this a few years ago, so...

1 – Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random.” The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random

2 – Go to “Random quotations.” The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3

3 – Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days.” Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days


So here's mine...

From Turpan Depression, their new album Reminiscences of What Never Happened.

It's probably some indy emo band, all gloomy and poetic. They sound like the Cure.

I got Sosondowah as a band name, so I'm cheating a bit with the quotation and using the first four words for the album title, Nature is Just Enough, and the album cover is here.

And their blossoming career was cut short in the UK because people confused them with the Marylebone Cricket Club.

Oh, that's a good one. Good band name, too.

I also like Twelve Years Truce as a band name.

I was so excited when I saw the picture I'd be using. But then I got to the text, and it started going from bad to worse.

Lorenzo Squinobal must be very Catholic. Or just morbid.
