Subject: RE: What not to call a band

>>I knew some Chemistry students who formed a punk band named "Hoffman Degredation"<<

Nice one Huw.

When I was a guitar-playing chemistry student many years ago, some friends and I talked about forming a band called "Al D. Hyde and the Ketones". Never got around to doing it, but I believe somebody else eventually used the name and achieved a modest success. Ah well, another career opportunity missed!

Other possible names for chemistry student bands might be "Bunsen and the Burners", "The Harvard Synthesis" , "Hell, Volhard and Zilinsky", or "The Green Yard Reagents". Or possibly not!
