    The Random Band Game

    This is incredibly fun and addicting...

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

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

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

    4 - Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.

    My creations:

    Anger Function - But That Wasn't It.

    The Random Band Game

    Ginrin - Explore it, Don't Limit It

    The Random Band Game

    Richard Paez - Thinkers Are Rare

    The Random Band Game

    The first one reminds me of Opeth a little, It'd definitely be a metal band. I think the second could be either prog-rock or prog-metal. The last one just screams post-rock.
