Album Covers

Friday, 6 March 2009

Bet you didn't know I was in a couple of bands, did you? No? Well, I was. Here are my album covers to prove it.

I have to admit, I had a few qualms being in a band which named itself after the king of the Celtic otherworld and yet persisted in naming our album such a twattish title. I think we were aiming for The Darkness sort of irony, I guess. Luckily we were pure death metal so we could get away with it, in that cynical ironical sort of way which is the lowest form of wit.

So then I left that band and as is the way of things, I auditioned for tons of bands and none wanted me. A failed solo career and finally, five years later I joined Disturbo 13. You'll agree it's a much cooler name, yeah, and better album cover, too, right?

Well, yeah, except how weird - different band but they INSISTED on naming our album the same stupid name as my last band!! There was no irony to hang on either considering Disturbo 13 were composed entirely of accordians. We disbanded six months after this album was released. So let my tale of egoic woe be a lesson to you, kids. Don't elevate style above substance or you'll end up with nothing.

This meme has been flying around emails and Facebook and blogs forever but boy, it's fun.

To get your band's album cover do the following:

The title of the article you get is the name of your band:
1 -

The last four or five words of the last quote on the page is the title of your album: (well, not random enough if I get the same album title twice!)
2 -

The third picture on this page is your album cover:
3 -

4 - Use an image editor to put it all together. (

(Aside: I am listening to the Indian music my neighbours are playing. This is some sort of rappy-type song, with the vocalist doing that "yeah" thing that rappers do, only in Indian. Sounds sorta incongruous :)


  1. lol sue, you got me going there
    "cool - she's been in a band"
    nah, I've just been had
    big time!


    bet the neighbours are listening to the soundtrack off Slumdog Millionaire [great movie!]

  2. Kel - haha, you've been had, you've been had :) (I wish I had been in a band!)

    Mark - aw, sorry!! :)
