Howard Baldwin Trophy

I stole this from Julie Gong yesterday (although I've also seen it someplace else I just don't remember where. And Niner's is here.).

This is my band - Howard Baldwin Trophy - and this is our new album "As It Was Before". We're playing the Empty Bottle in March, and you can catch us during our tour of the Mid-Atlantic States this Spring (provided, of course, that our drummer Horatio doesn't relapse).

Our first single, "I Think I Just Sharted (again)!" is getting a lot of critical buzz and there's talk of an appearance soon on Conan.


Things have been going great, actually. Pitchfork called our album "brave" and "experimentally commercial without pandering to general standards of decency or good taste" (I take this as a compliment). Plus, Maggie Gyllenhaal was photographed wearing one of our "I Think I Just Sharted at the Howard Baldwin Trophy show!" t-shirts on Gawker, and our flautist Nick is dating both Tara Palmer-Tomkinson and Steve Aoki.

To create your own:

  1. To get your band name, go here. The title of the entry is your band's name.
  2. Next, go here to get the title of your album. The last four words of the very last quote is the name of your release.
  3. Now go here. The third picture shown is your album cover. No cheating.

My band is called Khanates of the Caucasus. How alliterative! "Or even can be" is our album title. And my album art is a photo of an ostensibly anorexic girl. I could probably play with this all day. Also, I am procrastinating.

Oh how much fun! My band is called USS Ringgold and our first album, "Prevents you from Achieving" featuring this artwork: file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/svogt1.UNIVERSI-4750AE/Desktop/Hail%201%20-%20HDR.htm
is out now.

Now, does playing "Rock Band" live work as a concert option?

OMG this is so FUN! How do I write onto the picture like you did? I may have to call you up for some consulting, because Lemhi County Airport is going to hit it big with their breakthrough album, Be a Fountain, Not a Drain.

Brilliant - my band name is 'Alexandre Calame' who by amazing coincidence was a Chemist like me!
Album is 'A servant, sometimes deaf' - he'd need to be.
The cover has a lovely panda.

Sweet!

My band is "Fleming, Indiana" (really! how cool is that name?)

Our album title, for which we took the liberty of an extra word, is "Need is to Do It."

Our cover is a great, lonely photo of a railroad yard on a snowy sunrise. We do us some tortured folk-inflected rock, Fleming, Indiana does.

Pleased to announce that our band, International Association of Chiefs of Police, has released a new album: Time a Wee Disturbance. Look forward to big sales.

My band is Treaty of London, and our album is "It Always Gets Worse" (Bruce Cockburn quote).

I love that single! It really gets me going ... to the bathroom.

i love this meme! i need to get off my butt and do it.

... did Pitchfork give you something over a 8.0 for a rating?

I have to admit that your album cover is pretty sweet.

Swedish punk band Inlandsbanan will soon be releasing its debut album Custody of Your Life.

Can my band, Tilda's Yellow Shoulder, open for your guys at some point on your tour?

We're promoting our new album. I think we'd make a great lineup.

It'd make more sense than The Hives and Maroon 5, at least.

i just formed a new techno-punk band called the Korean Social Democratic Party. our new conceptual album "It Keeps Its Brain" drops next wednesday. look for two baby feet on the cover. so avant garde.
