There's a curious forum/message board meme going around and it's the Wikipedia album/E.P game. Essentially, you go to wikipedia, click 'Random article' and the title of the article, that's your band name. You do it again, and that's your album title. Ten times more for an album tracklisting and four or five times for an E.P. Do it! You can get some incredibly prog/post-rock sounding song titles (Demetrius and the Gladiators? Bosnia and Herzegovina parliamentary election, 1910? Lakes of Wada?), as well as some just plain odd bands names (Syro-Malabar Catholic Diocese of Kanjirappally, anyone? Kjell-Ronnie Pettersson?)

Try it! Here's an example

Nagashima Spa Land by Patterson Oti

01. Via Labicana Augustus
02. Texas Madrone
03. Museum of the Great Patriotic War, Kiev
04. Henry E. Bliss
05. Principality of Khachen
06. Olympic medallists in art competitions
07. Laura, Saskatchewan
08. Autochase
09. Psychological Bulletin
10. Tirtha Ram Dangol

I'm guessing it's a Nepalese proto acid-dub classic in the making...

Museum of the Great Patriotic War samples readings of Gogol and splices them perfectly over filthy 303 basslines and 808 beats.

Laura, Saskatchewan is the most gorgeous, if icy cool, love song you hear all year.


It can throw up some interesting results, but the next step... is to record with the titles you've been given! And I've done just that!


Ditrigonal Dodecadodecahedron EP by La Monte Moreau


01. Ideal observer theory
02. Michel López Núñez
03. Cascade Golden-mantled Ground Squirrel
04. Arkhangelsk Oblast

mirror: http://www.mediafire.com/?engjemdbybx

Contains: Mildly grimy instrumentals! Cut and paste spectaculars taking in Sonic Youth, Weimar Republic-era musique concrete and Keith Fullerton Whitman! Panda Bear-baiting nature talk! John Carpenter style seventies synth soundtracking!

Sorry for the long post. Try the game for yourself! You don't have to record your outcome obviously, but if you do... the more the merrier! Safe.

Here's what Boomkat had to say about this album:
Something of a grail for hardcore 'Redemptrix collectors, at last the music from this hitherto DAT only release is made available in a more usable format. Comfort care packaging, with imprinted letter press makes this a worthy addition for anyone concerned, not withstanding the fact that inside lies some of the most extreme, challenging and abrasive music you are every likely to hear. Thunderous echo and spatial imagery suggestive of abandoned factories and vacant industrial lots, this is an intense, largely unrelenting assault on the ears. Not every Redemptrix is essential, but this stands out as a particular highlight.
