The Wiki band game

Not exactly a game which will save the world, but quite funny anyway. What you do is go to English Wikipedia, and press "random article". The first article you get is your band name. Press again, second article is your album. 10 next is the tracks of the album, geddit? Here's mine:

Band name: European Parliament election
Album name: Topological group

01 Charles I. Stengle
02 Whitchurch Rural District
03 Camberwell Girls Grammar School (WTF?)
04 Tonasket, Washington
05 X-Men 2: Game Master's Legacy
06 Longshaw
07 Kusín
08 Retinol O-fatty-acyltransferase

Their seminal album was:

Imperial College of Engineering aka ICE

It contained only eight tracks (Does it qualify?) including the hit single "Jujeh Kabab", released in 1995 which launched the band to stardom.

The track "Kinescope" is 18 minutes long and owes alot to the influence of alternative punk/techno rock.

Here are the tracks:

2.Jujeh Kebab
3.Yellow Thing

7.Dwarf Tinamou
8.PG-7VR (reprise)

"Brezice"is said to derive from Bernice, girlfriend of lead singer, Pop Bradlley, who was so drunk when they recorded the track he couldn t pronounce the name.

Actually thats in Croatia,and Goli Otok was a prison back in the days of Yugoslavia,where political prisoners were held.
In other words,not a pleasant place.

Cmaza: this is completely random, but, 2 nights ago I had a dream about you, and now you're here. Freaky. =/

Anyway, how's it been?

Pretty good, pretty good. Wait.. you had a dream about me...? o_0

Posted: Thu Jan 17, 2008 3:28 am
by Dogbreath
Yes, I did. (it involved GH) This is very odd. Especially since I hadn't thought of you for about 2 years until the dream, and you post 2 days after it.

Posted: Thu Jan 17, 2008 3:49 am
by Cmaza
Yes, odd indeed... Well, though I have no intentions of returning to GH any time soon, I suddenly felt inspired to come back here a few days ago, so... here I am! Not too sure why, but I felt like coming back. Meh... nice to see you again anyhow. :)
