It’s devastingly simple. Here’s how it works:
First you need a name for your band or group. Fire up Wikipedia, click on “Random article” or on this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random. The title of the random article is your band name.
Next you’ll need a name for your band’s breakthrough album. Go to QuotationsPage.com, click on “Random Quotes” or on this link: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3. The last four or five words of the last quote on the page are your album’s title.
Two down, one to go; you need some album art. Go to Flickr, click on “Explore” and then on “Last 7 Days Interesting” or on this link: http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/. The third picture is your album artwork.
Now use a graphics package to put them all together. If you’re a Flickr member you can use Picnik or you can use something like Photoshop or if you’re on a Mac you can use Pixelmator.
And here, in all its glory is the album cover for the groundbreaking and seminal Would Have Confused Einstein by Securities Industry Automation Corporation. I don’t know about you but it looks vaguely Kraftwerk-ian, Vangelis-ish or Tangerine Dream-y to me.
