I've been involved with:
50-cent Tour
WheelWell (in case someone asked how we sounded, spoken like Elmer Fudd)
and currently Toulouse Cruise (aka Two Loose Screws)...

if someone is looking for a band name, I think that if you are towards an Irish/Celtic base, that "Dervish" could work, especially if high-energy is the norm...

My above entry should have read Ida Clare and Jess Orval. Sometimes we are Myrtle Green and Bracken Brown if we are in Scottish mode.
Also in Australia in the 70s there was "The Black Velvet Band" Someone must have used "The Blue Velvet Band" surely.

My first garage band was named after our keyboard player's mother because she allowed us to practice in her house -- then band was called "Mrs. Rizzo". My brother sat in on occassion with The Lemon Pipers. Then there were Atomic Roosters, Foghat...there's a Florida Folk band called "Sno Rogers" after a fictional baseball player...We're thinking of renaming our current band as "Grumpy Old Men". Maybe the Spaw and Cletus Roadside Review.

Nigel Mooney's Hip Operation from dublin; not only do they have an awful name, but they're pretty good too. What about the Funking Barstewards?? Roger Ruskin Spear & His Giant Orchestral Wardrobe (aka his giant kinetic wardrobe) is #1 IMHO.

We had a band in Cork called the Dancing Bastards From Hell. Another crowd driving to a gig saw a billboard which said "Fit Kilkenny Remoulds" so they called the band Fit Kilkenny & the Remoulds. I've always wanted to call a band either Johnny Foreskin & the Drawbacks or Harry Haemorrhoid & the Piledrivers.

From college days, Doug Clark and the Hot Nuts - a truly outrageous southern bar band.

Bob Hitchcock, I once played in a group called None of the Above - we couldn't agree on a name either. And who could forget Dr. Kilmer's Jug Band, Medicine Shoiw and Storm Door Company.

Interesting to read these names as my my band "Name that Band" is as you might guess, looking for a name.

Some suggestions :-

Phil Dirt and the Shovels
UB50
Meanderthals
Mott the Poophole

If anyone has a real good band name going cheap, let me know

As for the Cheetah Chrome- he was a guitar player for the punk band The Dead Boys. May be the same guy.
Other faves: King Ustinewicz and the Ustinewicztones, The Dancing Assholes, The Thin Lads, The Goodrich Blimps (I was in that one), Guided By Voices, Thirty Odd Foot of Grunts (Awful band, great name), Birds on Drugs, and so many more I can't remember...

Way back when, we had a college band called Les Freres Sidebottom. I later graduated to The Kitchen Syncopators (that one has subsequently cropped up elsewhere). Other favourites from south Wales have been Cliff Rescue & the Helicopters (still going strong), and Colonel Pine & the Pine Kernels.

Keep them coming!

I once thought of "Which Tyler and the Pedants' Revolt" but nobody in the band got it. Eventually we became "Surprise Guests."

Wasn't Ashley Hutchings' first band the Ethnic Shuffle Orchastra?

The House Band?

Glad to see the Dead Sea Surfers got a mention - they were a great band as well as having an amusing name. I've got on tape a track by a Hull-based band called Roger's Interview (but no-one in Hull professes to have heard of them!)There's also Morris and the Minors (I met Morris, who told me he wrote The Deserter now sung by Fairport) and Slim Panatella and the Mellow Virginias (I think Slim was Simon Mayer the mandolin player).

Favourite name at the mo is the tribute band - By Jovi. Can't think who they might be a tribute to...

I used to be in a band called "Who Cares?" and narrowly missed the chance to do a double bill with another local band called "So what?"
