Idea: A concept album about concept albums

First | Previous | 2018-09-25 | Next | Latest

Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

T-Rex: I'm writing a concept album.
T-Rex: About HUMANS.
T-Rex: I imagine what it's like to be a human and sing several songs about things like being in love, breaking up, depression, etc.
Utahraptor: Wow! That sounds really different and unusual!
T-Rex: I know! I bet nobody has ever done and album like this before.
Utahraptor: How will you promote it?
T-Rex: Thinking I might overdose in a hotel room.
T-Rex: So original!

The author writes:

This was inspired by a conversation about concept albums, and realising that no subject is so esoteric or unlikely that no band has done a concept album on it already.

Quantum mechanics? Done. Cricket? Done[1]. The wives of Henry VIII? Done. Spider-Man? Done.

[1] And it's a great album, too. Both the original and the follow-up. Not least because I wrote some of the lyrics to one of the songs on the follow-up album.
