...according to Tom Townshend of MSN.UK.
but I've now leant to count four 'n's
interestingly google has already figured out that the three 'n' mispelling is still Dananananaykroyd; it does not even ask you to confirm what you mean't
I can see why google has to work overtime to work out your spelling...
... it doesn't look wrong to me, even in the cold light of day.
Seriously, with Dananananaykroyd it took me quite a while to spot that first 'y' - it is easier if you've first heard the name pronounced, but I first read about them here.
Please don't think I have anything against them or their music though. I just think they have erected an unnecessary barrier to people getting to hear their stuff.
that was hard work.
Hee-ho! Someone's still going to have to explain to me Wall of Cuddles.
that are "x and the y", where x is a name and y is a completely irrelevent word that has seemingly nothing to do with anything. Like
Noah and the Whale
Tilly and the Wall
Pete and the Pirates
Florence and the Machine
Change the frickin' record.
They seemed to have all but disappeared a couple of years back. I quite like names like that as there's an element of showmanship to the name, if not necessarily the music. Certainly I prefer it to either the <insert plural of a bland word here> names or to "wacky" names with absurd punctuation.
someone and the somethings is much better than The mehs or !cr@zy!
And anyone attempting anything else is "misguided"
It's really really hard to name a band that really works without looking like you're either unoriginal or trying way too hard.
a band name is if the music is good enough you quickly forget the moniker inanity. i mean led zeppelin is truly arse, in reference to going down like a lead balloon (thinly veiled crap). pantera, wtf?!
but some ridiculous names are actually thoroughly entertaining so this lack of nomic inhibitions shouldn't be discouraged. the seal cub clubbing club, awesome trickery (baby seals are in fact pups, not cubs)! anal cunt, cutting through time like an eternal pair of profane scissors. acid mothers temple, engrish at it's finest. norwich unicorn, need i say more?!
how about our new side-project: princess dialysis machine with our future hit single "sly and the kidney stone"
Silly names are fine by me.
I mean immediately with a band called Princess Dialysis Machine and a song called Sly and the Kidney Stone you assumed the band are a bit of a joke band doing music for a laugh but not putting much throught in what they do or taking it very seriously. Which might be true of the band, in which case it's fine or might not be true of the band, in which case it might be a problem.
But the name gives an expectation of what kind of band you are and people will assume a band with a joke name are a bit of a joke band.
told me they saw bill murray in an airport and shouted out billillillillmurray.i bet he was impressed...
reminds me of ghostbusters
