Artist: Fulton County
Album: Taiwan Independence!

1. Galati River
2. Nima Nakisa
3. Compound Poisson distribution
4. Joe Carter
5. Military of Mali
6. Nelson
7. Orders, decorations, and medals of the United Kingdom
8. Made to Love
9. NGC 6231
10. Flop
11. Definite description
12. Tourniquet

I imagine this album to be an intropsective acoustic piece, feeding off influences of protest folk music and happier BNL-esque contemporary pop genres. The source material stems from a trip through Asia and being inspired by the ever rapidly changing political landscape.

Made to Love would be the opening single for its marketability, a bittersweet tale about a japanese escort girl who dreams of a life in a less oppressive culture. The suprise hit though would be Tourniquet, an angry ballad about a Burmese freedom fighter fighting to live amongst hostile conditions and scant medical help.

I have to make another!

Band Name: 2002 in Singapore

Album: Ray Knight

1) Addlestone railway station
2) Ultra Twister
3) Indefinite logarithm
4) Horsham YMCA
5) 1942 in literature
6) Once Upon a Planet
7) Joseph Luns
8) Lietbertus of St. Ruf
9) FL (programming language)
10) Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
11) U.S. National Dancesport Champions (Professional Standard)
12) Opisthotropis

2002 in Singapore is into geek-rock and songs about scientific processes. Our big hit was Once Upon a Planet, but all the hardcore 2002-ers love to jam to Opisthotropis.
