But there's more...

....time to be wasted on this nonsense!

The rules actually got thrown out of the window by this point.

Me and the rules cited creative differences.

Even got to a point where I gave "imaginary artist" Martyn Amos, a short Discography.
This all just turned into me dicking around [obviously during an more important project].

Either way, Check it out! Brand New!

KOCT - I Myself deny it.

This is the most recent, don't ask why everything came out in
reverse order, I can't be arsed to wrestle HTML at this hour...

I really love this one, more improvement with text settling better
on the cover, slick blending.

Paroxytone - The most Potent Muse

One of the best, still has room for improvement.
The names are pretty cool too...maybe real bands do this....

No Wave Cinema - "Wisdom is whats left..."

Seems so real, almost too real, surreal pic too.
I can half imagine what the music sounds like, look at those graceful clouds.
[Also note, Parental Advisory]

The Martyn Amo's Series

Obviously by now, I was just having fun with it.
I thought the name "Martyn Amos" was kinda 'useful' [Cool],
So I gave this "imaginary artist" an trilogy.

"Stranger than we can imagine"

"The last product of civilization"

"...and let love be free"

Better things to do? Yes....

...but working on nonsense!

It's a game I came across in the procrastination hell-holes of Facebook.

I do enjoy it too much. Rules are:-

1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random”
or click
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Quotations Page and select "random quotations"
or click
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
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photo-shop or similar to put it all together.

5 - Post it with this text in the "caption" or "comment" and TAG the friends you want to join in. [Piss off everyone else you know with any experience in Photoshop]

Anyway, here's a bunch I did! Which ones are the most convincing??

April 16th - ...and may be some time

There is an strange irony behind this one....

Kawle Gorne - Thwarting you at every turn

This fit too well, blended quite well too.
Album name is solid gold though.

Jinhua - Because I am Looking Down

People thought this was real. Seems genuine too...
No idea who "Jinhua" actually is.

Nesciothemis - To be Stupid, Selfish & Have good health

I love this pic, so random and bandlike.
Started to steer away from the rules a little while working on this one.

Old Strathcona - One Who lets himself be loved

Poor placement on my part. This is one of the first I done.
Not a big fan of it really, but shows development I guess.
