You know we all have dreams of getting on that stage and wailing our hearts out! Well at least that's a dream for some of us. Mine, I'd rather croon like a 1950s jazz singer.

So now here's a meme that allows you to create random, fictional band and album.

Here are the rules:
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 Quotations Page and select random quotations or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3. The last four or five words of the very last quote on 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, GIMP, Inkscape, or similar to put it all together.

And this is what I get!

Backtracks with their first album Polished As Your Sword!

I know! A very Goth-rock Evanescence look!

Not sure what the album represents but I figure with the pensive bride all decked out in white staring out the window - and a band like Backtracks, I figure it's angry militant females railing over the uncertainties of life and men. Possibly looking back on their prior dysfunctional relationships wondering why life would suck without them! And the pain of the polished sword :)

Got the name Backtrack supposedly from a western novel while the beautiful cover's from an artist on Flickr called Nika Fadul.

Come polish our sword. And if you'd use the last 4-5 words for tracks, you'd get 'Suck Without You'. Hur hur hur.

Apparently my band's called Thomas talbot and our album's called "He was, 6000 years ago". Potentially gospel....:P
