Rock and/or Roll


I got my mythical band name, album title, and album cover photo from a post that Cherry did recently. You click on links to get the necessary names and pictures at random. Cherry helped me write the words on the picture, because I'm really dumb when it comes to computers, and most everything else. Thanks, Cherry! Now, a little about my mythical band . . .

Lehmi County Airport is led by left-handed guitarist, singer/songwriter, and self-proclaimed genius and doctor, Dr. Kenneth Noisewater. Their first two records came and went without much fan fair or critical praise, both grossing less than the band's staggering bar bills, but they are standing on the verge of a breakthrough with their latest release, the self-indulgent, self-depricating, minor masterpiece, Be a Fountain, Not a Drain.

It takes a few listens, roughly 30, for this album to grow on you. The first 10 listens you'd sooner have your femur bone cracked in half, the next ten you're really annoyed, but you tolerate it, the next five you find yourself bobbing your head, but still a little annoyed, suddenly, during the next three listens you're in love with this record and don't see how you lived without it, you hate it again upon listen 29, but then after 30 you're back to wanting this record to make love to your butt.

Pick up this mythical record, coming to a mythical record shop near you.

Also, head over to The Liar's Club, a Chicago topics blog updated hardly ever by Cherry, Classy, Niner, and Myself. I'm actually kind of proud of my latest LC post, and it's not even mythical!

During all of this time I'm listening to the album, am I drinking? That may explain my acceptance.

Ms Smack said...

Smack Dab is running another Guess the Boob Competition honey if you're interested :)

This time it's open to men too, so if you want to send in a picture of your nipples, please do so!

Airam said...

I love how you've actually made up stuff about your mythical band.

"you're back to wanting this record to make love to your butt"

wow, that's a whole new way to express appreciation for a cd right there.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

I don't think I've listened to any album 30 times.

But if it will make me want it to make love to my butt, then maybe I'll give it a shot.

Laughing through my chardonnay said...

No post is complete without someone wanting to "make love to your butt."

Also, how does a few equate 30? I always thought a few would be like 3? I guess I'm wrong agian.

Mr. Shife said...

I would mythically buy the hell out of that album. Maybe I can be a band-aid like in Almost Famous because I am assuming you would have some hot chick playing keyboards or a triangle or just standing there showing off her boobs.

Mighty Dyckerson said...

The album hasn't grown on me yet...although I do have an unpleasant looking formation on my scrotum.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Charm: It couldn't hurt. Keep drinking.

Smack: I will certainly vote on that. Boobies make the world go 'round.

Airam: I also have to credit Cherry with making up shit about the band, but thanks!

Jersey: Yes. Our band has that EXACT sound.

Cherry: Keep listening, damn it!

Chard: "Few" was used for comedic effect. If only I were funny, then it would have been effective . . .

Shife: You're in for a band-aid, and yes, there will be a girl playing the triangle, wearing only band-aids.

Dyk: Sorry, man. That's a side effect. We need to put that on the fine print on the record.

I'll only run to the nearest mythical record shop if there is a guarantee that after 30 listens the record will make love to my butt. let's be honest here.

radioactive girl said...

I love that you have a backstory for your band. That is really a nice twist on this meme. Oh, I see in reading the other comments that airam already said that. Oh well, I'm leaving it anyway.

So@24 said...

If I had a band, it's name would be Times New Roman. I've thought about this for years.

As for the lack of comments... I'm sorry man. You know my thoughts on the comical hierarchy. I don't feel significant enough.

Hold me.

classyandfancy said...

My question is, does it rot, rock or rule?

Drunken Chud said...

i had an "air guitar"/"lyp synch" band named bloody big knife a few years back. we rocked out. albeit silently. but to the untrained eye, we were pros. total bamfs.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Thisday: I have a guarantee sticker on every disc. It will happen. Patience . . .

Radio: The backstory is true. Mostly.

24: You and your band are more than worthy in my book, little buddy.

Classy: Depends on which listen you are on.

CHUDLY: Bloody Big Knife? Most would say big, bloody knife, but you're right, Bloody Big Knife is a better band name.

lol, sounds like it should be platinum........or somethin

pistols at dawn said...

Since I'm so busy now, I only have time to support mythical bands. Thanks for making it easy for me!

Girl in a Guy's World said...

Where can I buy this Lehmi County Airport album you speak of? And how about the latest from Times New Roman?

I think these bands would make it.

captain corky said...

"Be a Fountain, Not a Drain."

LOL! I'll drink to that. ;)

Jenni said...

I am glad that someone else besides myself is a "self-proclaimed genius."

Love the tunes by the way!

Jenni said...

Oh, and anyone who has Tesla's "Love Song" on their play list is FREAKING AWESOME.

Love that song.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Steph: Platinum, that's flattering. Thank you. My record just went "polyester," actually.

Pistols: Glad that works out! Just to keep you in the know, we have a regular gig at Bubba's Stir Fry and Titty Bar. Check us out!

GGW: We have a gig with Times New Roman, as well as Cherry, Niner's band. We're all playing Blogapalooza.

Cork: I would think you'd drink to being a drain, since that would mean liquid would flow straight down. Either way, thanks for coming by again!

Jenni: Believe it or not, that song inspires me. Okay, I know. It's hair metal. But I love how he says, "You'll find love again, I know." Even when I feel like complete shit and think I'm going to die alone, I believe that long-haired fella when he sings it to me.
