Talking If I had a band I'd call it....

Some great names for Prog bands I've seen recently.

I particularly liked 'Albino Slug'

If I had a band I'd call it 'Go for the Dog' or in memory of my recent operation 'Deviated Septum'

What would you call your band????

Re: If I had a band I'd call it....

My top four:

The Thick White Cards
The Memoirs
Jazz Super Stereo Phonic
Tank


(The only problem with Tank is people associating it with ELP.)

Re: If I had a band I'd call it....

I joked years ago I'd have a band called, "These Guys."

"Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for These Guys."

Re: If I had a band I'd call it....

One time some friends of mine were asked to cover for an opening band that canceled two days before a show that had already sold a few hundred tickets. They threw a band together, rehearsed a bunch of obscure covers (so that most people would think they were originals), called themselves "Room for Improvement," and played a 45-minute set before the headliners. Pretty fun show. Just played the one gig.

If there were ever an Aural Moon band, it should be "Moonatic Fringe."

Talking Re: If I had a band I'd call it....

"Free Beer" I was actually in a band called that in the 80's. Used to piss people off when they found out it was the bands name. "Avalanche"-a landside of rock n roll, and "100 proof" would be good too.

Re: If I had a band I'd call it....

Oh I've thought about this a lot.

My band would be called The little salad forks. Our first album would be called "lettuce begin."

NO, that would be the first (or second album) from the Hotdog men.

Re: If I had a band I'd call it....

These are fantastic folks - gave me a real giggle today although TobyTanzer - where I come from a Trump is a Fart!!!

I am currently in a band called 'Dr Dill and the Herbs' - which I like.

Used to be in a band called Turnpike and later on one called 'Pigs in Space' (a direct steal from the Muppet Show), but our tag line was ' In space no-one can hear you squeal!'

In terms of new names I'm now going for;

'Thankyou and goodnight!' - though it could lead to the world's shortest gig....

"Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome - Thankyou and Goodnight"

Re: If I had a band I'd call it....

Maybe I'll just do a solo album and call it "the Mike album." It will feature me and my bandmates sitting in a room. I'll be sitting on a chair with a cast on my leg. :P
