Band promotion simplified

Struggling to get your music out to an unsuspecting but possibly adoring audience?

1. Find a random Wikipedia article.
That's the name of your band.

2. Similarly obtain a Random Quotation.
The last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3. Go to Flickr's 'explore the last seven days'
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Put it all together: that's your debut album.

Surprisingly, it works very well, making one wonder whether this is a common strategy, particularly amongst post-rock bands.

For example, the best album you've never heard of is 'Watching TV By Candlelight?', by Settlement Hierarchy. Excellent cover image, too. Pre-order the CD now!
