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

in high school, me and a friend came up with a fake band called Reverse Polarity one day in physics class and wasted a lot of class time designing album covers and coming up with punny song titles.

other names off the top of my head:

Syncopated Sanity
Cloud Nein
Splitting Hares
Synesthesia
Camel Toast ;-)

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

I have a friend in a band called "The Mid-Life Chryslers".

I always liked "Lifeline Experimental Orchestra" (LEO) and "Organized Noise". But my favorite name is "It's Not What You Expect".

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

I always liked "Tools for Dad", after I saw it on a sign outside a hardware store in Atlanta.

And the quirky "Four-Loaf Cleaver" is my favorite.

Oh, yeah, how about:
Age of Larry
Fear Itself
Nat King Coleslaw

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

A few band names I've toyed with...

The Has-Beens (old covers band)
Once Were Rock-stars (in the same vein)
Thursday Night Roast (or whichever day your local pub has it - for a folk band)
Lost in the City (Yes covers)
Dog's Breakfast (punk band)

I've got a mate in a Zappa covers band called Petulant Frenzy.
And I was in a four-part harmony group called "Faux Pas Harmony".

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

This requires a little bit of a back story so enjoy.

When I was eighteen I worked at a grocery store pushing shopping carts(this was 1988). One day there was a guy entering the store who was wearing a King Crimson t shirt(the one with the red face on it). I recognized it and started talking to the guy. He then told me had to go pee so he went in side the store and I caught him on the way out. When he came back we had this pretty long conversation about music. I think it was the very first time I ever heard someone mention The Residents(a band I had never heard of before). I don't remember every detail of our conversation but it was apparent(his shirt was the first clue)that he was a prog fan. So anyway, he told me that if he ever had a band he would call it "Inky black." I think he said that he heard that from someone who told him that's what he would name his band. SO there you have it. "Inky black" would be the name of my band(that is if I couldn't think of something better). I don't think I ever saw the guy again but it's interesting that I remember that from over 20 years ago.

I like all of those titles (except maybe Syncopated Sanity).
Cloud Nein is very Neitzche
Splitting Hares a little gruesome
Synesthesia would have to be for a very ELP type band
Camel Toast is marvellous!

Now, what were the punny song titles you and your mate came up with?

Sad to say, I found myself reaching for the "Like" button...

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

Yesterday's Retro
comes to mind because I love old 70's prog...most of the band's work would be highly influenced by canterbury and Gentle Giantesque symph.

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

If your band is a guitar oriented one with the crunchy compressed guitar sound of oh let's say Metallica Then a good name for it would be "SLUDGE!" It would have to have a good bottom end too. You know, Rythm wise.
