This (fake) band could be your life

A history of indie rock icons: Holocaust Pity Fuck
Since forming in suburban Boring, Oregon, Holocaust Pity Fuck broke into the indie rock scene in 1990 with their debut album, Incapable of Almost Smothering. The band's latest album, Vanity Pricks, layers Davey Marmalade's unabashed vocals with lo-fi production to produce another collection of retro-inspired crowd pleasers. With standout tracks like "Varnish, Vanish and Shine," don't be surprised if you find Holocaust Pity Fuck at the top of the indie rock charts and beyond.

This is awesome: Fictional Band Bio Generator!

Thanks, Pop Candy.

Ok, time for a CONTEST. Please enter your best/worst fake bio in the comments field. Best/worst entry will receive a featured post later this week.

A history of metal icons: Jesus Turtle Fish

Emerging from the seedy clubs of Aurora, Ohio, Jesus Turtle Fish ruptured onto the metal scene in 2002 with their debut album, "Bite Me". The band's latest album, "Bite Me Harder With a Vengance", blends Harvey Safe's haunting wails with crunching guitar solos to fabricate an effort bursting at the seams with spine-tingling classics. With standout tracks like "Is That Blood on your Leg?," the music of Jesus Turtle Fish appeals to metal fans and non-metal fans alike

originally entered this under the wrong post, my bad...


Alex Chickells (bass), Frances "Drew" Magruder (guitar), Tippy Lemon (vocals) and Craig Baker (drums).

Formed in 1987 in Tucson, Arizona. Tippy and Drew met as stock boys at Office Depot in the Sugarland Strip Mall. Drew knew Alex from the high school swing band. Craig Baker, 15 years older than anyone else in the band, is the only person to call in response to the flyer they posted at the Perkins Pancake House.

They got their name while discussing a name at Eat a Pita and that's what Drew ordered, a lemonade and a beef teriyaki stir fry pita. No green peppers (the other name they considered).

They set out to write songs in the style of their favorite rockers - Tippy (Sammy Hagar), Alex (Survivor), Drew (Kiss), Craig (Breathable Mesh - his last band where the other memebers just didn't get where he was coming from. You guys are great.)

They wrote a manifesto for their band that can be summed up in six words. "We will rock all of you."

They debuted on a Tuesday night at Riverlake Lanes featuring 90% cover tunes - and playing "Love Gun" three times. Their one original song, a ballad penned by Drew and Tippy, "GED of Love," went largely unnoticed by the League Night crowd.

They broke up six months later when Craig sold his drums to cover his rent to keep from being evicted. He was evicted two moths later.

Here's what the generator did for me:

A history of hip-hop icons: The Taliband
Emerging from the hard knock life in Kabul, The Taliband exploded onto the hip-hop scene in 2002 with their debut album, Trouble in Da' Rubble. The band's latest album, Poppies, Birkas and Beer, merges Mullah Yabba Dabba Dullah's singular lyrics with soulful samples to produce a disc overflowing with Barry White-worthy slow jamz. With standout tracks like "Droppin' Bombs on Ya'," don't be surprised if you find The Taliband at the top of the hip-hop charts and beyond.

Give it up for: Puth Ath!
From the street corners and Steel Mill barber shops of Gary, Indiana, yo, Puth Ath broke into the hip-hop scene in 1998 with their debut album, stick it in yo ath. The band's latest album, lick it again, mixes Puth Ath tha Thtool Pidgeon's insightful and just plain sick lyrics with some Midwest bounce to generate yet another disc full of snappin' joints. With standout tracks like "carpet bagger," don't be surprised if you find Puth Ath at the top of the hip-hop charts and beyond. Truth.
