Time for some 90s Britpop.

Hmm... this one could be part of a pull-out CD liner notes design:

Can't be bothered to shop it all together but I got:


Band Name: Arz Missile (seriously, no joke, that's what I got on wiki)
Album Name: Willing to see less

All strangely in synch somehow...

A few more I shopped:

These guys sound like a big beat house dance music combo:


... and some New York punk:



Actually, I think this 70s soft rock group might be my new favourite:

Re: Now for some fun: Pick Your Band Name / Album Name / Album Cover

These are hilarious. And so realistic. Does that trivialize art or just artists?

Here's the one I did last time, including track listings. I'll do another one later.



side one

1. things are (getting out of hand)
2. calibrating piracy
3. gray feminist, indeed
4. riding the northern
5. never able to repay you
6. sense and meaning (part 1)
7. magnificent promises
8. i loved the whole idea
9. therefore god
10. each problem that i solved

side two

1. in-a-gadda-da-vida

Seems like it would probably be something folksy...

This is fun! I think I'll do some more later. (Oh, but I must confess, I didn't go with the first random article I got; I know, it's the rules, but I was not going to have my band be called "Ontario Municipal Board", dammit! )

I'm beginning to wonder if bands such as Radio 4 and British Sea Power got their names this way.

One more. This one is an early forgotten album by 80s power rockers Q500 Pylon Racing, during their "hippy" phase...





OK, I lied about the "one more". (This game I've found is clearly more addictive than I thought - equally as addictive is coming up with suitably 'shopped cover designs. )
This really is one more now - Korean punk rockers Raon Mall who were clearly "paying homage" to their idols here:

Re: Now for some fun: Pick Your Band Name / Album Name / Album Cover

I have three to add to the thread.

First, the introspective debut of mellow singer-songwriter Jonathan Warthen Strubel, Left On This Earth:



Next, there's the latest release from Pacific Coast rockers Heritage Square, Oaks Take Deeper Root:



My favourite of the bunch, though, is Silence of Our Friends, from venerable Swedish prog-rock outfit Kommissionen:

I'm having entirely too much fun:

Band name: List of NATO Reporting Names for Air-to-Surface Missiles
Album title: ...and a bumper sticker



We're a politicized parody band.

DANG!

Why did I delete the albums I created the last time we did this?

Here's the old topic. It might still be in there unless it was on Photobucket and they deleted it.

^Thanks, I already looked up the old thread and found that the ones I made back then were indeed deleted -by me

Should give it another try though, this was fun
