    What do you want to name a band or album...and why?

    My mom told me that she wanted one of those resistance exercise bands for Christmas. They come in difference weightings and she wants a light one. So I wrote on my list "light resistance band". As I'm purusing my list I came across that and thought that it would be a great name for a band...The Light Resistance Band. Or just, Light Resistance.

    On another note, my brother and I share an affinity towards a specific guitar pick which happens to be purple. Every store in the city was sold out of these picks and had them on back order and it became quite a quest for us to find them. In discussing the pick shortage one day I misunderstood purple guitar picks to be Purple Guitar Pigs and thought that would be another good name, probably more so for an album than for a band.

    Perhaps Light Resitance's first album can be called Purple Guitar Pigs.

    One day a squirrel ran out in front of my car and I thought it might be a suicidal squirrel. Then I thought that would be a strange name for a strange band "The Suicide Squirrels".

    one of many unfinished artsy-fartsy projects:

    You Can Kiss My Broke Ass Goodbye
    to be released in high fidelity stereo on No Signs of Lameness Records

    Kind of a low-fi Southern (US) roots music album in the same vein as Beck's One Foot in the Grave. The production/record company name came from an article in a local small town newspaper. A not-so-bright fellow was trying to coax an uncooperative mule or jackass down the road using his pickup truck and a rope. The poor beast of burden wound up being dragged for quite a distance. Upon examination, the vet was quoted as saying there were "no signs of lameness." My record company logo is a cartoon jackass standing on his hind legs with one front leg in a sling, a bandage around his head, in sunglasses and with a cigarette resting on his bottom lip.

    That's an easy one.

    The band would be Swish Baby and the album Princess Nora, both for obvious reasons.

    For a short time I was in a group called "Papa Chub". I always thought that was pretty clever.

    Band Name: Fecal
    Album Title: What's the Matter?

    They would have to be a punk band, I suppose...

    I've tried to get every arab guy I know to start a punk rock band called Jihad just to get attention and piss everyone off. Still, no takers.

    One of my old bands was called "Liberal Propaganda"...we had an album called "The Divine Right of Kings" which I also thought would be a cool band name.

    We came up with all sorts of cheese-ball names like this for songs - "The Invisible Hand", "The Marxist Fallacy", "Supply the Demand", "Intelligent Design" etc - None of us are terribly good poets or lyricists so we just decided as a gag to pretend to be hard core conservatives as our shtick...we wrote songs about capitalism, the inevitable failure of communism, the anti-WTO protests where dairy farmers marched along side vegetarians -typical agitator stuff. It was awesome being onstage while our singer would be insulting the political beliefs of the majority of our crowds. Got most of the song lyrics from random conservative-activist web pages or just taking the counter-argument to a lot of other anti-war, anti-globalization, anti-WTO songs we found, etc. Wore suits with authentic Regan-era power-ties on stage for awhile until our drummer ruined a $800 suit and his fiance put an end to that.

    There's hundreds of bands that write political music, but they all seemed to be leaning the other way for some reason so we hoped this would help us stand out.

    Couldn't have been that good at it though, I'm still a slave to the man in my day-job and Stephen Colbert has since gone on to make millions applying a similar gimmick to a TV talk-show personality.

    Taken from the Peter Weir film I always thought a cool band name would be ...

    The Year of Living Dangerously

    Although that might make a better album name.

    I used to be in a band that was called The NYVZ "Knives", which I am thinking about restarting at some point.

    I don't know but back in the 80's there was an all girl punk trio from Britian with a pretty cool name . . The Slits. So, how about a male equivalent called Wood or Randy, maybe.
