I like your idea for this post, nice one! I have even visited it a few times and thought of names. Not sure I'm into the ones you thought of too much to be honest, although they are quite funny! I think to really conjure up the best names you'd have to sit down with a bunch of mates for a few hours and list all the best words and see which words go together well etc... Time consuming and obviously a bit pointless if it is only for fun and you don't have a band. Obviously if you had a band it would be worth it!

All I have come up with so far is these....

RASH HOAX
I imagine this to be a Fugazi-styled post-hardcore band

SILVER PELLETS
Trashy slightly punky indie band - the sort that split after 3 albums

SLIM PHOENIX & THE TIDAL WAVES
Wacky country tinged rockabilly four-piece with a double bass player

Good??? Crap??? I'm not sure myself really but I quite like my RASH HOAX one!



Just appealed to my sense of silliness really - I'm not sure if silliness is desirable in a band name or project, but I'm just imagining someone mentioning they are going to see them or name them with a play on the radio and laughing myself silly.

It's all a bit subjective really, but I find most band names quite dull. I'm sure Mark Radcliffe would tell his listeners what a stupid and ridiculous name for a band mine was like he occasionally does for others. It does annoy actually as his opinion is just another opinion and not actually fact.

Don't mind & The Tidal Waves for a backing band
