i.e. Foals, Klaxons etc.
Is this an attempt to basically say
"We're not like all those other bands who go for names that are 'the one-or two-syllable-generic-noun-s'. We're much more original and imaginative 'cos we don't have a 'the' on our name"
and if so does that make them the indie equivalent of Spinal Taps "These amps go up to 11"?
