    what does "get thrown together" mean?

    Hi there

    I was wondering what did "to get thrown together" mean, for example in

    Most bands get thrown together using the often fallible principles of supply

    It sounds me as if something that get thrown together, it mixes itself with something other randomly. I mean in this case it is not suitable for the example above, but generally the meaning would be that?

    What do you think?

    Ernesto

    A possible word would be "scramble"?

    "Everything scrambles"

    It simply means that everybody was put in together.

    Thank you very much for your suggestions. I think it can also be "are mixed"


    And sorry for the delay, I was kind of on holidays
