Lost albums of our time

Everyone else is doing it, so why don't I?

Make your band's album cover:

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 (or similar) to put it all together.

Post the results and stand back in awe:

The Hotel Breakers were a seminal disco/symphonic/folk group based out of Droitwich in the late seventies. They never quite matched the majesty of their first big release, "He'll not sell much ice-cream going at that speed", a smash hit in the post-punk dancehalls of Worcestershire.

After an argument over the rules of croquet, the Hotel Breakers split up in the summer of 1982, citing recreational differences.

Random fact: the band took their name from their bass player's hotel habits. Apparently he would never hang up bath towels for re-use, causing a huge increase in unnecessary laundry and contributing directly to ecological disaster.

most bands do split up over recreational (drug) differences, no?

My album involved a group of degree failing chemistry students and some Dutch hash - it was never going to happen!
