The East India Playing Company
pretty cheesy, I think.
Really bad. Contrived to the max.
...before I opened the thread.
It conjured up Strange Death Of Liberal England and Victorian English Gentleman's Club in my mind. A wee bit arty, a bit clever.
and it's alright. Otherwise: just bad.
then it's just a straight British clonial empire reference, which is just stealing.
the 'playing' makes us into a musical group, rather than just a company with a monopoly of east indian trade.
that anybody is going to mistake you for the East India Company of historical renown.
As for whether it constitutes "stealing", that's between you and your God.
doesn't work too well in my opinion. The East India Company alone would be much better. I don't like the word "playing" in it basically.
It sounds like one of those good-time choogling blues bands from the early 70's. Guitarist with a droopy moustache.
a drum with a tamborine & a keyboard. and my friend on guitar.
though it's all a bit 'interchangeable'.
we've done a moldy peaches cover and a velvet underground cover amongst other things.
Honestly, that name is no good for what you're doing...the images it brings to mind are all pedestrian.
at all psychadelic?
I think of a wooden tea chest containing muskets being shipped to the Belgian Congo.
Lots of browns with hints of casual racism.
But if that's what you're going for....
maybe we could incorporate it into a stage show one day...
is my favourite word of the day.
and someone said 'Tell me what you think they sound like', I would have to answer 'Ocean Colour Scene'.
but i can imagine that they're boooooooorrrring!
I like it.
means alot to me <3
would be better,
seriously consider it.
i love your display picture!
so go with it
the exact same number of boards posts as me!
it's better than my face.
'is this a good band name?'
very very funny.
take the playing out....
I know exactly what you want to do
our band had this obsession with these types of names..moscovy company sounded nice..1922 committee...all this stuff...
it is contrived.
and stop listening to the British sea power and you;'ll come to your senses
No, that's what i did.
'Stoichkov' is a great band name i think. and Group Of Death, as unfathmoably there is no band called that
I thought of an awesome band name the other day: "Ominous Dong." What say you?
No, it's awful.
