As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

Ran this little exercise awhile back...

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/387028

...and the result was much jocularity. Let's see what we can come up with this time. And, no, this is not my original idea but one that I copied from another forum.

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

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

So without further ado (and before the reunion tour kicks off) here is Air Canada Jazz and their new CD Laughter Is Inner Jogging!

Musk Xylene - Scratch Where It Itches (K Records, 2009)



I'd say Musk Xylene's Scratch Where It Itches is a true innovation in modern music. I think it's the first time anyone's ever recorded an ensemble of diarrhea- afflicted Down's Syndrome chimpanzees taking a collective dump in someone's garage. They somehow managed to mic each of the chimp's buttholes, slip 'em each a strong laxative with a banana lunch, and then, kerblaam! Lucky for you, dear consumer, these tree- swingers squeeze out just enough smelly goods to make for an entire album of pure unadulterated crap.

To continue the excrement theme, you could say that Musk Xylene aspire to be the musical equivalent of those downtown NYC artistes that crap on a canvas, and sell their feces to pretentious art collectors for a pretty penny. Although, really, I'm the last one who'll condemn a band just because they can't "play" in a traditional technical sense. In fact, on a daily basis I enjoy all sorts of inherently filthy semi- musical crap: Pussy Galore and Jon Spencer, Jandek, the Fugs, the Stooges, the Sex Pistols, and so on.

On a technical level, though, Scratch Where It Itches makes an album like the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's exceptionally trashy 1992 debut sound like Zeppelin II. I mean, what sort of tragically hip jerk- off would allow these inept f&*ks to make a CD? This audacious little twerp should be shackled to his stereo system, have headphones duct- taped to his cranium, and forced to listen to his brilliant discovery on repeat for a few days.

When you get right down to it, these poor bastards don't even try. They aren't funny enough to be a joke band. They aren't offensive. Just unbelievably boring. The drummer bashes the toms like he's a seven- year- old doing a bad imitation of a handicapped John Bonham. The guitar limps along on a few repeating out- of- tune notes. The diverse lead singer gets into some ridiculous Yoko Ono vocal performance-- that's when he's not doing the muffled Jon Spencer- wannabe mouth- over- the- microphone screaming. And I guess they couldn't find a bad enough bass player, because it sounds like there isn't any bass whatsoever. Damn that's bold, baby. Oh, and there's lots of clueless free jazz sax- blowing, too-- and, boy, it's not annoying or anything, trust me.

(the above is an actual review from Pitchfork of an Old Time Relijun album)
