Character Design Contest ♯31- Same Old Song And Dance

For this weeks contest I want you to design something musical. It can be a band, performer, instrument, genre characterisation etc. doesn’t matter as long as it has something to do with music.

No limit on entries, good luck and have fun.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

  1. Only mortals would try to play music with only two arms…

  3. The most impressive thing about [multiple clicks and whistles, non-transcribable] is not that the stage name pun translates equally well into every single known language. It’s not that Kali Marie is actually a metric-ton amoeboid and only fakes having regular appendages. It’s not that s/he only shows six to twelve pseudopods outside the body and multi-tasks with up to eight more INSIDE the body using more equipment out of view of the audience . . .

    . . . it’s that his timing is so perfect, he can strobe directional microphones accurately enough to play [i]three songs at once.[/i]

  4. ‘Your Phone Bill’ is a simple rock band starring the brother and sister combo of Robert and Shelly Weiers, along with lead singer Derrick Louis Stevenson, and Swedish trumpet player Thorvald. Shelly plays insane guitar riffs and writes most of the songs, while Robert is adequate on drums. Derrick was their friend since high school and the only one who can sing. They didn’t really take off until they found Thorvald, who speaks no English and just plays what he feels like. They played darts to see who got to name the band. Unfortunately, Robert won and chose whatever the next letter he got said. History was made.

  5. Prof. Abercrombie Q. Anthrax

    Carky Carchrias was a popular performer in the supper clubs and juke joints around Houston and Galveston Island in the 1950′s. His show-ending rendition of “Beyond The Sea” is still spoken of as legendary.

    The first time I heard him was in the spring of 1972. I was listening to 101FM {the buzzard}. Out of Cleveland. Not sure what time it was the lights were low. The radio sound did fade then came back with a hiss and a phase. Sounded like a slow voice on a wave of fame.
    That ain’t no DJ it was some kinda hazy cosmic jive
    He’s the original Space Man waiting in the skies. He’d like to meet us but he thinks he will blow our minds
    He told me I still don’t know what I was waiting for. I’ve been down a million dead end streets and found the taste was not so sweet so I turned my self to spaceman
    I watch the ripples change their size but never leave the stream. So the days float through my eyes but still the days seem the same
    Sound echoed in my sight and lights buzzed in my ears.
    Now is the time for your change more than you ever were. Powered to make a change in your world…….
    Inspired by David Bowie’s songs Starman and Changes

  8. In 1972 interdimensional beings known as the Zalordeen, sent several signals over earth bound radio transmissions. This signal was a genetic manulaption wave, designed to transform a single human into a super being, and thus STAR MAN was born.
    The Zalordeen had created StarMan as a touchstone to our reality
    Now the Zalordeen are back in our reality, brought back by the appearance of several cosmic beings into this reality. IncludingThe Nexus The Sentinel Sut-Kal-Hag, and The Unseen
    The Zalordeen have created several heroes to help to stop the coming crisis

  10. below is the bio for Kashmir
    Hammer of the Gods is the unofficial name of this group that was formed by the enigmatic Kashmir. The group takes much pride in not being a traditional group; they have no regular meetings, no “club house” or any such trimmings. They only band together at the calling of Kashmir. The “team” is quick to go their own way after one of these encounters.
    Kashmir evolved is from a group called Hammer Of The Gods this is what he looks like after a being trapped in the Dreamers realm

  11. Man, I thought this would be an easy contest, but I can only think of band names. No actual cool characters…

    Ranting Roger

    For names, I’m using a couple that I would have named by own bands: “Butt & The Retard Drivers” and “Boneplate.”

  12. Legendary Black Metal Artist: Doomsayer

  13. A mainstay character from various writing: Pop Sensation Cherrie Hart
