"Erectioneering" is Paedohead's best track.
I know a load of brilliant bands are called The Somethings, but I just think of a tired old boring indie band.
So true. Don't call yourselves "The [...]". So gash.
is even worse. Unless they are from the 50s or 60s, in which case that may be OK.
Hank and the Hammerheads an obvious recent exception.
Surprised there isn't a band called someone and the something's
but I do quite like Kurt Vile and the Violators
If anything the audacity of calling yourself The Music makes me like them even more.
and being Garfield's voice
Er...Audioslave (fair enough on that one...)
no dice for Soundgarden
...Audio Bullys (bad on multiple levels)
American Music Club
Pye Corner Audio
Future Sound of London
King Midas Sound
besides Pye Corner Audio, and that's more of an aesthetic decision than arbitrarily including the word audio.
is the first thing I can think of with audio in the name. But there's bound to be something really decent we've forgotten.
and 22 years of silence
The Something Something Project.
Instantly makes me think of either crap late-90s dance music, some kind 'urban community centre' band, or an overly chin stroking tech-prog band from the Midlands. None of which i'd ever want to listen to.
were they part of NME's new rave tour?
...there is already a Panda Wolf out there:
Hope they google/link them to this thread.
Turns out there's a band called Young Pandas too
and those Peppermint Ape wannabees Arctic Monkeys, and The Monkees.
who have made one of my fave albums of this year. Maybe a case of forgiving of the band name because I like the record situation. But yeah, no need for Apple Pie in a band name. Unless it's Stephen Fry's Apple Pie. Sound like math rock, percussion mainly QI qlaxon.
velvet acid Christ?
the former gets a pass, the latter has much worse things going for it.
When you get names like Kevin Rowland and Dexys Mignight Runners or Jonathan Richman and The Modern Lovers. The And really annoys me why can't they just call themselves Dexys Midnight Runners, Kevin's name in unnecessary and cumbersome! We all know he's masterminds the operation anyway.
I like Mark E Smith and The Fall, very good Mancunian sound they are. To be honest they were founded as a tribute band to Badly Drawn Delphic.
James Ray's Gangwar.
Ariel Pink's Haunted Vagina.
much as i love pissed jeans and like the name, the amount of friends who refuse to listen to them as a result of a lil cuss
anything that sounds like a giggling 12 year old named the band.
When I told her to remind me to email Perfect Pussy's manager, and she didn't question it.
It was such a proud day for me.
like in straight edge band names
and be like 'not for me'
Don't like it- seems a bit teenage.
ALSO - misspelled names - chvrches, that kinda crap. dumb asses.
And changed their name to 'Girls hardcore XXX'
And then their next album could have been called, 'How to delete browser history'
cause i'm quite fond of that
including the word 'ska'. For example, Battleska Gallactica or Ska Wars or something.
There goes the entirety of Hip Hop
Ice, Sea, Dead & People
Is it relevant that they're all Scottish (but not nationalists)?
The Crystal Mumfords and the Audio Party
Lil Stinking Death Cum
New Black Bear Fucker Club & The 1967 Little Red Cold Young Crystal Deer Bells
Catfish and the Bottlemen.
Fucking hell I hate them already.
to know what they sound like. And I bet at least one of them goes onstage barefoot.
always puts me off
is a rubbish name, and a classic pre-google name
even googling "A band" wouldn't work. Maybe that is why they disappeared. I actually quite liked Monkey Kong back in the day.
Code orange kids are a great band but I hate the name
Bear / rabbit / even the word "animal".
I think you're onto something there
