My trio is named "Matthew-Mark, Luke and Bubba" because here in the south Matthew-Mark is considered one name. We rejected the name "The Rhythm Methodists" and for one night only we performed as "The Brokeback Mountain Boys".

    Women Wrestling in Mud (another that got complaints from disappointed punters)

The Electric Prunes

Climax
In the Sixties, most of us wouldn't have understood the implication. I've been listening to some "bubblegum" songs and realized the lyrics were not as sugar and spice as whe thought. Oh my...)

Lemon Pipers
Speaking of bubblegum, here are some of the fanciful words that, when you take another look...)
"Take a trip on my pogo stick
Bounce up and down, do a trick
I'll play a beat on your pumpkin drum
And we'll have fun in the sun"
Now I KNOW how naive my friends and I were! How we managed to stay so sweet 'n' innocent in the craziness of the Sixties I'll never know.

Creedence Clearwater Revival

Electric Light Orchestra

A now-defunct Celtic group in Portland, which had at least 2 different incarnations with variations in the band's personnel, was "Howling Gael."   I love that name.

And we have a great bluesman here named Paul DeLay. While Paul was in the slammer on a drug rap -- I know, I know, hard to imagine that happening with a blues musician -- the band performed under the name "No DeLay."

Hi Texas, some unused (in my world) band names for you...Cardboard Mountaineers, Chicken-in-a-Basket, Warp Dressers and Twisters,...and some used ones...Monk Brown and his Dirty Habits, Pineapple Nine (particularly creative this one:they sang English Folk,did not do any numbers about pineapples, and there were only three of them...they hoped their audiences would be sypathetic on account of six band members not having bothered to turn out... tho' indifferent musically, they were quite droll)

That was a bluegrass band here a few years ago. They all met at the landfill and found out that they all made music, so they formed a band. Too bad they broke up.

Long Jon and the Underthings...but I've never been able to get my partner Jon (who is short, of course) to start the band.

Thought of this about 20 years ago when we were in a singing competition, the second Harmony Sweepstakes, against "the Slips" and (I think) "the Girdles."
