Subject: Fantasy wanted!!! New bandname
From: menzze
Date: 09 Mar 01 - 07:01 AM

Hello friends

For about 15 years I had a band called OAKTREE: We played Irish & Scottish folk music, music from Bretagne and some of our own songs. The whole thing was pretty traditional. The band split 6 years ago and I took a nearly 6 years break. Half a year ago it was time to start again, which turned out to be more difficult than I'd imagined. I really live in the country and musicians don't grow here like in big cities.

Anyway, I finally made it to get some nice guys together and we're rehearsing for three months now once a week. We're still doing Celtic folk music but left the mere traditional way and added drums, electric guitar, bass and keybord.

What we're looking for now is a name for the band. I believe there must be enough fantasy between all you mudcatters for at least a thousand names. Give us your purposes, they're all welcome.

Have a good time everybody

love

menzze

What about Dara, which means oak tree? (OK, it's spelled a bit differently in modern Irish, but Dara's how it's pronounced, and how it used to be spelled.)

You might want to be careful about that, Dara is a record label dealing in Celtic music. You saw what happened to The Verve...

There used to be a great Scottish band called The Skhoubie Dubh Orchestra (pronounced Scooby Doo). Amazing what you can get away with by changing the spelling!

wolfgang, Ive tried the old threads you've linked above. It's really unbelieveable what can happen on a mudcat thread. They must be all crazy here*gr* with a twisted sense of humor, just the way I like it.

Hope this thing here will bring as much ideas and as much fun as the aussie thread last year.

I make a promise to all you catters:

If we 'll find our new name from here the one who'll have suggested it will be invited to the first concert of the band with it's new name. This might bring some problems if the one is from overseas and we're in the south of Germany here. But time will show.....

unpatiently waiting, biting my fingernails down.....

best of luck to you and your new band!

Do you really want an English name for your German band? Okay I thought of a few with some connotations of both Northern European and Celtic connotations:

Wolf at the Door

Dream of Trees

Barley Crush

Blue Lights in the Forest

Oakmoss

The Mushroom Hunters

we're thinking of an English name for the band coz we're doing celtic folk music and we sing in English.That's the simple reason why. Thanks for your suggestions.

I had a folk group in college called "Captain Come and the Seamen" (don't laugh, WE GOT A LOT OF GIGS). But you might try one I'd thought of for Germans, "Blau Rauch en Speigelen" or "Blue Smoke and Mirrors" in bad german. If it's a really bad band, just go with "Blue Smoke" which in West Virginia means whats connects where you wuz to where you is. (Kinda like that old saying "Say it with Flares")

My favourites up to here are Far Harvest and Quercus Reborn but also like the Scattered Stones.

What we were already discussin' on in the band was
Miner's Revenge
Across the Border(which already exists
Tir Na Nog
Dearg Doom
Celtic Branch

Keep the names comin' folks, keep 'em comin', we're thankful for everything............

Some people I know had a band called "drumnadrochit" - they found the name by sticking a pin in a map of Scotland! Seriously, though, you might consider an acronym such as Gaffa (good and folky for all), although I might point out that Six Hands In Tempo have given up gigging as a unit!

Hi lads,
I've survived the meal last night. in fact it was better than I expected it to be. Had a wonderful duck on vegetables. As I said , I never tried that Thai/Nam stuff before, but I'm shure I'll go there again.
Amos, you've not already made it but I like your Pendragon Pipes. Menzze and the Boys was a fun suggestion a friend of mine made two weeks ago, but it sounds too ridiculuos for the rest of the band.
hey Kat, you lead the list by nunmbers
I think we should limit this thing to thursday 15th, 7.00pm coz we start rehearsing around 8.00pm. I copy out all the names then and we will decide for one of them before midnight.I'll let know all of you right afterwards.
Something else I've not thought about before but which turns out to be a little candy: it will be also a kind of birthday present for me coz I become 41 on midnight.
Ok lads, you're all doing a great job, I love you for that.Keep it goin' and keep them names comin'..........
