Climbing to the top of the charts!

My band Létra has released it’s latest album More of them than us. It is is fast climbing to the top of the charts!

Yeah right! In my dreams!! 😀

Sulz has tagged me here Actually she has double tagged me – on the blog and facebook! 

Rules of the meme:

  • Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random” or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band. If it’s already the name of a band, you can hit random again. 
  •  Go to “random quotations” or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3.The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
  •  Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days. Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
  •  Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.
  •  Post it to your blog with this text and tag the blog buddies you want to join in.

Weird or just my luck; my first two random hits gave me names of music bands! For the curious out there – They were “Charged GBH” and “Headhunter”. Third try got me : Létra which is a village & commune of the Rhône department of central-eastern France.

I like the French bit of the name…sounds cool and easy to pronounce! 😀

The quotation I got was by Herb Caen –

There are more of them than us

The album name is so random! It can mean anything. I like it 🙂

The image I got is what I used for my album art. Ok…not just like that…I did some exposure settings changes to get this look 🙂 Btw, the first image I got was copyrighted and the owner had asked people to mail him for his approval to use the picture anywhere; so had to try again to get this image. Guess I never get anything right the first time 🙂

As to tagging, I suppose it is open to anyone who has a band or wants to have one or like me has one in one’s dreams 🙂 Please just let me know you have taken this up so I can come and check your band name, album and album art 🙂

Oh before I forget…in going with the post; Teeni has awarded me with

Well, very apt timing indeed – what with my album climbing to the top and all 😉  🙂 Thanks a lot. 

She has awarded me with the proximity award for jumping in and fitting right in.  Thanks again!
