Seventh Baron: The latest release from Yamazaki Station

From rinnie ryn's livejournal blog come these instructions:

Go to the Wikipedia home page and click "random article" (see the left column of the page, under the Wikipedia logo). That is your band's name.
Click random article again; that is your album name.
Click random article 15 more times; those are the tracks on your album.

OK, here's mine:
Band name: Yamazaki Station
Album Title: I decided to shorten "Merlin Hanbury-Tracy, 7th Baron Sudeley" to "Seventh Baron"
Track 1: Ideal Speech Situation
Track 2: Magnanimity
Track 3: Canal Walk
Track 4: Birkan Batuk
Track 5: The Word Magazine
Track 6: Alphanate
Track 7: 1956 Grand Prix Motorcycle Racing Season
Track 8: Deckers, Colorado
Track 9: Sierra Leone National Basketball Team
Track 10: Averham
Track 11: Tracy Tweed
Track 12: Mohamed Amine Zemmamouche
Track 13: Valea Ciorii River
Track 14: 3041 Webb
Track 15: Haanja Parish

OK, so I wound up with a disproportionate number of places and people's names, but it's inspiring nonetheless, along the lines of a writing assignment that asks you to incorporate a random list of words.

*Next day edit*
I played again this morning and laughed when I got the band name: Ono. We have been talking for ages about starting a band called Uh-Oh (in part because the album title possibilities are endlessly fun -- Uh-Oh, Poncho Emergency!). Ono is about as close as you could get to that name.
Today's album name: AC/DC
