Now playing...

Posted by shonk at 12:15 AM in Ramblings | TrackBack

Talking to George today, we came up with some band names that someone needs to use:

  • Seized By Apathy
  • Who Are These Guys? (so that when they show up at your favorite bar and refuse to play covers, the band name will be on everybody’s lips)
  • Creative Destruction
  • Boosted To Mediocre
  • The Occipital Lobe
  • The Gel Curve
  • Interspecies Powwow
  • Discomfort in the Afternoon
  • Tman Gets A Clue
  • The Dismal Scientists
  • Ayn Rand’s Malignant Lung
  • The Vegan Cannibals
  • The Use of Fools
  • The Unwitting Accomplices
  • Internal Dialogue
  • Gratuitous Post
  • The Categorical Imperative (stage costume: black turtlenecks, horn-rimmed glasses, berets)
  • Erectile Malfunction
  • The Underground Monorail
  • Skyborne Oil Deposit
  • Felonius Insult
  • G-String Theory
  • Shit Hemorrhage (chorus to their first single: “I went to take a shit but the shit took me…SHIT HEMORRHAGE!”)
  • Nocturnal Mission

Feel free to add your own.


Further possibilities:

Jupiter's Hot Spots
From Here to Later Today
The Grassy Mole
Squeegeein' on the Inside
The Fat Pajamas (now that others are already stealing from the Bradbury till)
Mandelin Wine (same as above)
Evangelical Slaves
Ms. Marple's Midgets
A Fool Strikes Gold (maybe this hits a little too close to home for the average band--or at least to their aspirations)
My Kingdom for a Biscuit
The Woppo Senators
Discount Blitzkrieg
Soiled Armbands
The Rekjavik Squatters
Corpuscular Homunculus

and my personal favorite: Regicitis (bizarre crown shapes forming on the genitals? I don't get it either)

Not at all. Trust me, if I were getting tired of comments I would turn them off or (if it were just particular people) start banning people's IP addresses.

Good suggestions, both of you. And Curt, if you have any interest in writing about your experiences this summer, I'd love to see it.
