All right, I'll play.

Band name: National Labor Board (nice!)
Album: Ludolf Leendertsz de Jongh (esoteric...it works)

Track Listing:
1) Schuylkill Transportation System
2) January 2008
3) Dick McCabe
4) Brusné
5) Dromid Pearses GAA
6) Lassi (disambiguation)
7) Dinosaur size
8) Lake-burst
9) Santa Camarão
10) Bad Radkersburg
11) Hardy, California
12) Detachable collar

I worry that the whole thing might be a bit twee, but tracks 1, 2, 6, 10, and 11 have some real potential.

Probably time to release our second album...

Artist: National Labor Board
Album: Maßbach


1. I Don't Mean to be Rude, But...
2. Nasar
3. This Broken City
4. Opole (Disambiguation)
5. LLJ
6. Werewolves in Their Youth
7. Cape Dorset Airport
8. Face the Ace
9. Vernon Hill (sculptor)
10. Battle of Tiger Hill
11. Strange fits of passion have I known
12. Anjalankoski
13. An Unlikely Missionary
14. Primitive reflexes
15. Jarawan languages
16. Huntingdale railway station, Melbourne

Clearly, it's an ambitious concept album about a disaffected secret agent traveling through a war-torn Europe, torn between his duty and the woman he loves, and the deep dark secret he himself is struggling to keep himself from knowing.
