Here is another strip about musical snobbery, which is something we here at Flying Monkey Comics are always trying to promote. Music snobs are sure to get a kick out of this, if only to see if it knows the most ridiculously obscure acts you can think of. A couple of Christmasses ago I got a 20 Questions Game, but it only knows general stuff (for instance I was thinking of a wookiee (I happen to spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about wookiees) and it guessed “werewolf” which is as close as you could ever hope for). Mostly though, we just see if we can get it to say stuff like faeces (or feces, as this machine would have it).

Akinator‘s “knowledge”, however, goes a lot further. I recently spend an entire evening getting it to (successfully) guess the likes of Arthur Brown, Jobriath and Russell Hammond.

This comic was written based on a vague memory of reading about Godley & Creme’s Consequences album in Paul Stump’s The Music’s All That Matters: A History of Progressive Rock. I still haven’t heard Consequences. It’s not on Spotify.
