My new fake band

A friend of mine posted this exercise in procrastination bagatelle on Facebook yesterday, so I thought I'd pass it along so that you don't get anything done either just for fun.

1- Go to Wikipedia and hit Random article, found in the left sidebar. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 - Go to and hit Random Quotes, also in the left sidebar. The last few words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” under the "Explore" tab on top. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover
4 - Use photoshop or similar ( is a free online photo editor) to put it all together.
5 - Post it with this text and invite friends to join in.

With that, I am pleased to announce that my new fake band, the London Country Bus Services, has just put out its first album, Rich Man Poor, available nowhere.

What's your new fake band?
