Re: If I Had a Band, I'd Name It...

Once upon a time there were three rock and roll bands...

One band was from Glyphsville, Ohio. This band practiced diligently in the bassist's mother's garage. The band eventually, through practice, achieved its reward of repeated gigs at local bars and roadhouses. The band's name was The Doomsday Gomers.

The second band was from an unspellable location in Wales. This band was earthy, and its output consisted entirely of percussion (stones banged against stones) coupled with Druid chants. One album (title translated as "Rock Me, Infant") was released in 2003. The band's name was Ditflits.

The third band was from Seattle, Washington. This band continually diminished in both membership (due to death) and importance as time went on. What is the sound of one bandmember remaining? The band's name was Instibator.

Rumor has it that various members from these defunct bands are getting together and forming a new band named Happily Ever After...

Re: If I Had a Band, I'd Name It...

If I get someone who will get this reference, I will be floored:

Decreator, whose David Bowie-emulating lead singer wears a ceramic mask and has an obsession with the concept of remixing Vivaldi.

My first guess seems a trite oblique, but I will go with Buckethead.

Close. No cigar.

Interestingly, I'm not referencing music. But those were two very good stabs. *Snickers at perverse irony of last sentence.*

Re: If I Had a Band, I'd Name It...

Spotbowserfido has returned home. Before he collapsed from the effects of jet lag, I was informed of the thousands of photographs he took in various European locales. I gird myself for the interminable slide show. In the interim, I'll let sleeping dogs lie. He also plans to put together a new band named Woof and the Warped...

His Master's Voice,
Phil
