Subject: What is your favorite band name?
From: GUEST,Texas Guest
Date: 02 Sep 07 - 03:15 PM

Well, I haven't given this a ton of thought but I saw a thread posted today by the, "Flying Chaucers," and I thought - wow,
what a great name for a band - so my lot is is cast with the Flying Chaucers; but, what is your favorite band name; and yes, you can list more than one. In fact, you can even put forth a band name that no one has ever used but you think would be a great name.
I always though "Truncheon" would be a great name for a metal band. Have fun. Cheers.

I badly wanted to call a band I was in Lemming Moran and the Tarts, but I was voted down.

A short-lived effort (but I did like the name) was Macswel's Friends .. you'd have to have met Macswel to appreciate the name. Macswel was a soft toy made by my Mum, with heaps of character.

and at school, when looking for a 'strong' name for our band we were very nearly...

Caustic Soda and the Bleach Boys

The thread Alice refreshed has the Sensitive New Age Cowpersons, I'm pleased to report. The first all female rock group in Oz (in the early 70s) that I heard about was called "Hen's Teeth"; unfortunately they didn't last very long. A couple of years later another all female rock group formed in Sydney, called "The Ovarian Sisters"; I think they lasted 4-5 years.

And, in the late 70s, I occasionally played (and sang the occasional shanty) with "Rum, Buggery and the Lash!" who did a great version of "Running Bare".

Cheers, Rowan

Bands I've been in:

Needeep

Chunky
The Kitchen Sinkopators
Hamstrung Bones

The latter was after a joke on (I think) Round the Horne referring to Lord Snowdon as Anthony Hamstrung-Bones.

A fave name I know is the Blues band - Cliff Rescue & the Helicopters

Brent Ford and The Nylons were in Birmingham in the 70s. And I liked the sound of Ricky Cool and The Icebergs (presume it's the same person now touring as Ricy Cool and The Hoola Boola Boys.

Bamsquilverboozled was a pretty good name, we thought! Rapsquillion is easier though these days!

Hi Georgie - Nick Pallett from Principal Edwards (they later shortened their name to that) was a mate of mine at university and he there had a band called the Nathaniel Clackthorne All-Rubber Band.

One of my uni bands was Shaft and the Rocks (the lead singer was a mining engineer, see?) and one of my school bands was the Pink Perves. Another uni one was Wandering Hands and the Jailbait.

I am also the oldest surviving member of Roger the Chorister.

More currently, yes, I too think that the Flying Chaucers is a great name, and there is a snigger snogwriter female trio from somewhere near Cambridge called "Deadly Lampshade".

I liked the in-your-face element of Courtney Love's band name "Hole", and also "the Slits".

"The Chosen Few" is a pretty good name too.
