New Music Release!

Updated to fix the links and add a few new ones at bottom of's interesting that all of the assorted albums I've seen so far look like honest to goodness albums...just goes to show the very eclectic nature of the music biz, I think. Fun stuff.

Via Eric of Fire Ant Gazette, via comes this meme of serious consequences (when you have finally had it up to HERE with election "news," take a break and play along at your leisure. Build your own band, album, and album cover, using the vast resources of the interwebs...chosen at random.

Here are the steps:

For the name of your band, go here (Wikipedia) and take the name of the first article that appears on the screen.

For the name of the album, go here (The Quotations Page) and gather the last four words of the last quote on the page (you might have to hit refresh or something to get a new page of quotes to appear)

And finally, go here (Flickr) for the album cover art and pick the third picture on the screen.

If you would like, follow Eric's directions to find out how well your band's album is doing on the Billboard charts via this random number generator (Kalamunda Road's new release is # 38 on the charts!) and what genre your band messes around in, just for extra good measure. Kalamunda Road is classified as "Drone." Drone? I don't think that really captures the spirit of Kalamunda's driving beat. I'd call it Nomadic Grunge.

Coincidentally (or not), Kalamunda Road "provides access to Perth City and Midland," from whence this meme derives.

The band's album name comes from the full quote by my favorite children's author, A.A. Milne:

"If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear," from Pooh's Little Instruction Book, inspired by A. A. Milne (I modified the gender to fit the image).

Wise words. :-)

"Fluff in her ear"?! What a great name for a band! Would also have worked wonderfully as an album title.

Fluff in her ear is the album title. But it works either way. Fluff in the ear can be a good thing when talking about music, I think. ;-)

This was fun, Gwynne.

You do have a problem with the link to Jim's blog--a little extra http fluff in the browser's ear.
