Preliminary reviews suggest an innovative technical triumph of algorithmic-derived existential howls.

And the reviews are in!

Perhaps with some politics mixed in too.

I think this could aslo be used as a TrekBBS: Name/Avatar/Signature generator.

That would be crazy.

review

Maroto are an interesting band, and Affects Us So Powerfully (1999) catches them during their intense transition from hippie/folk to ploitical electronica.

The influence of new keyboard player Neil Leppard is seen in the political approach in songs like Desalinize and Tank, while lead singer Andy Moot relected where the band has come from in the songs Lift and Review. Their single from this album, Lady, is a love ballad that doesn't quite mesh with their old or new styles, and failed to chart, but has since been covered successfully by Exercise.

Their follow-up album, Risks On Its Behalf, was a more cohesive effort, and rewarded them with three gold albums. But fracture were appearing in the band, as mentioned in the last track of ROIB.

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

We did this a couple of months ago on Facebook. It was a lot of fun, so much so I ended up doing several. A couple of these are from Facebook and two are new ones I did today.

Here's one:

The band is "The Gamekillers" (some sort of MTV Special from 2006), the album is "To Be Kept Alive..." (part of a quote from Thomas Jefferson) and a picture called "Asy-Syakirin" by aqiera.




Here's another:

The band is "Radio Trijaya” (an Indonisian Rock Network), the album is "simplicity might suggest" (part of a quote from Thomas Moore) and a picture called "the iris" by kasiakrz.




And another:

The band is "Nya Doxa” (a Swedish Book Publisher), the album is "would be dead" (part of a quote from Johnny Carson) and a picture called "The Mountain” by HawkeyePilot.




And yet another:

The band is "Public Telephone” (a 1980 French documentary film directed by Jean-Marie Périer), the album is "…man with a past" (part of a quote from Evan Esar) and a picture called "We are catching the sun today” by codysmithphotos.




And one more:

The band is "Organic Brain Syndrome” (a term referring to physical disorders that impede normal brain function), the album is “Day For Your Return" (part of a quote from John Grogan from his book Marley and Me) and a picture called "Greetings From London” by Chris Halford.




(I have to give credit for each part’s origin. I think it makes each one a little more awesome.)
