band name meme

ok, my friend mark riddle tagged me in a silly meme to create my own random band name and album cover art. the rules are:

1. Band Name: Random Wikipeda Link

2. Album Title: Random quote generator (take the last four words from the first quote on the page)

3. Album Art: Flickr Interesting Photo (pick one)

so, here you have it.

my band is called Kenbulun (which is, apparently, a village in the Chuy Province of Kyrgyzstan, and darn good band name, if i do say so myself).

the title of our most recent (and genre-smashing, to be honest) album is Because I Hate Plants.

and, of course you know, since you have the album, but here’s the cover art:

i’ll tag a few peeps i expect will play along:
tash mcgill
josh treece
and, the wonderful renee altson

and, hey, anyone else who wants to play along! you can at least put your band and album name in a comment.
