Main Question or Discussion Point

What we've got so far:

Fred Zapplin Presents

Wookie Translator

Population Gravy

Plasitc Venture

Joanie Loves Chotchie Loves That Blonde From Three's Company... Oh Yeah, Susanne Sommers

Mad House Harry And His Hankerin' For Mahsed Potatoes

Two Days At The VFW


there were more but I can't remember them right now...

What kind of music?
 
  • #3
kinda like a melding of frank zappa, Primus, Mike Patton type stuff, classic rock type stuff, P-Funk, Herbie Hancock...

so basically sorta like jazz with a foothold in funk and classic rock

But We need a lead singer!!! (I think)

oh yeah, peppered with a little bit of death metal...

as you may already be thinkin' We're still tryin to figure out what we sound like. We've only got a few songs and they are all basically held together in a jam session type format, but no singing, so it's leaning more towards jazz fusion right now, with all the above influences. Hopefully we'll get some recordings made by mid January, but we're gonna need a name then... I think. And it must be a funny name, so what name so far do you find the funniest?

The members of my friend's band were sitting around after an early practice, and someone asked "What are we going to name ourselves?"
And someone replied "Good question."

What did they name their band?

"Good question".

I don't have any suggestions for names, but can make a suggestion of what not to do...don't use someone else's name in your band name...at least not unless you want to pay them royalties for the rest of your life every time you put up a flyer or get a gig using their name. Also, those really long names should get trashed. Who's going to remember something like that? Stick to two or three word names unless it makes a good acronym, and then use the acronym.

Feel free to use any of these names rejected by all three of the bands I was in during college:

Scrupulous
Belle Curves (this band had two girls in it) (even I though this one was forced and too "clever-clever")
Travelogue (we almost went with this one; sounds good, but "looks" wrong)
Vanadium (They said it sounded "heavy metal"; I assured them it was a relatively light metal)
Ted Nugent (they argued it was taken, I never belived them)

You should call yourselves "They told us not to make this band name too long - so we did just to piss them off"

or ttuntmtbntl-swdjtpto for short.

you still spelled chahi wrong!!
 
  • #21
thats okay, it's part of the band name

most of these could be names of the band, or song names or album titles

Do you ever wonder how long it must;ve take Haan Solo to learn the wookie language?

Do you think Chuck Norris or Donna Sommers would get pissed?
