my band is more obscure than yours is

No time no time. Must run off to the opening volley of the christmas party barrage. My little sister wants "anything pink and sparkly" for christmas. Any suggestions? For reference, she is 29. Also, my coffee cup split and spilled! I feel betrayed.

1. Go to Wikipedia and click random article. That is your band's name.
2. Click random article again; that is your album name.
3. Click random article 15 more times (or however many times seems appropriate for your band); those are the tracks on your album.

List of the Taiwan national baseball team squad at the 2006 World Baseball Classic

Romance of the Three Kingdoms V

Black-tailed Trainbearer
Viscountess Rhondda
Martha of Denmark
Joan Whitney
Bârlogel River
Totten
Data (computing)
Club Social y Deportivo Macará
Hasilpur
West Downs School
Eleanor Coerr

My guess is it's experimental noise of some sort. Some band name, too. Even acronymised, that would barely fit on a poster.

I look forward to a time when all new bands are named this way.

P.S. Did anyone in the biblet at ATP pick up badass's copy of Cloud Atlas? She finds it to be missing.

Is it wrong that I get the Romance of the Three Kingdoms reference?

Finally, Wikipedia comes into its own
Croat-Bosniak war, by Erbach an der Donau:

1. Amarillo Metropolitan Area
2. Windmills
3. Minister of Technology
4. Clarkson
5. Taboga (moth)
6. Robonexus
7. Richárd Bodor
8. Tennessee State Route 191
9. Efraín Ríos Montt
10. Høstmørke
11. Helpmate (disambiguation)
12. Immigration New Zealand

Bonus tracks:

13. Ajisukitakahikone
14. Log Management and Intelligence

(I think most people will come out sounding a bit krautrock, or at the very least experimental. It's the bias of Wikipedia towards science, technology and "hard" humanities.)

Re: Finally, Wikipedia comes into its own
speaking of bias (which you weren't, not in that way), I really hope that fundmentalist christian bloggers somewhere are doing exactly the same meme, only with Conservapedia... ;-)

Re: Finally, Conservapedia comes into its own
This was worth doing: Pacific Mut. Life Ins. Co. v. Haslip, by Alcoholics Anonymous:
  1. Circle
  2. Pahoehoe
  3. Montreal Canadiens
  4. John Marshall
  5. Economics Terms P
  6. Paleozoic
  7. Grand Funk Railroad
  8. Asexual Reproduction
  9. Calcarea
  10. American Government Terms P
  11. FoodNet
I'm thinking: Midlake? The Breeders? Document-era REM? A more drunken, beersoaked The Hold Steady?

Re: Finally, Conservapedia comes into its own
I've a feeling that from this day on, no wiki is safe.

There's got to be some marvellously specialist ones worth plundering...

Re: Finally, Conservapedia comes into its own
Uncyclopedia, normally a humour-erratic zone, is the gift that keeps on giving with this one. Well, that's what my mates from the Front de libération du Québec told me, shortly after releasing their eighty-minute opus Defense of Marriage Amendment with its standout track "Sandwichtologists".

Band: Taonga (Maori word for 'a treasured thing')
Album: Owen Hart and Yokozuna (a professional wrestling tag team)

Yea, I can believe that.

Side 1:
CVCC
Radio Enfield
Marzio Bruseghin
Me and My Shadow (hmm, that would be a cover, I am thinking)
Alpha Industries (instrumental)

Side 2:
Charles Walker
Greenwood, South Carolina
UNeDocs
BMW M30 (yes, the Kraut rock bias does show itself)
Ashlee Vance (hmm, I have heard of him, probably even emailed him at some point, small world)

Talking of this sort of thing, I commend the Adam and Joe show on 6 Music to you, every week they make up a song each on some theme suggested by listeners. This week it was exit songs for films - The Shining and The Hours which can be found here.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/6music/shows/adamandjoe/song_wars.shtml

See also http://adam-buxton.co.uk/ad/page/2/ for ones they did before when they were on doing the Breakfast show for a week, I prefer European Supermarket.
The best thus far has been the Ikea meatballs cooking instructions, vaguely in the manner of Deacon Blue, but I don't think they've put that on teh web yet.

This is the best meme ever
Data General Business Basic, Nike-class

1. Paul Manning
2. Tom and Jerry Kids
3. SX Superstar
4. Pixel Perfect
5. State of the art
6. Eastern Mountain Coal Fields
7. Allie Sherman
8. 1997 FIA Sportscar Championship Jarama
9. Shaikh Khalifa Medical City
10. Gateacre railway station
11. Yeste, Huesca

I'm guessing they're a couple of nerdy boys in white trainers, doing slightly-ironic gameboycore with some badly-judged hip-hop and 'world' influences.

Pop fact: their much underrated track "1997 FIA Sportscar Championship Jarama" is actually not named after the race but after the secret bonus level on Total Pole Position: super-platinum edition.

Failed
I ended up with a band name `A Grand Don't Come for Free' which is an album by some UK garage guy and an album name of 'Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers' at this point I decided to stop before I break all of the internet.

I was a skeptic
but when I got "Chiller Cabinet" by Lunt (on Sebastjan Gobec records), I thought I should compile an EP at least:
01 Charles Howard, 9th Earl of Suffolk
02 Beddomeia kershawi
03 Jack (Book of Words)
04 Country Club Plaza

Oh man, I have to make this record..
