Names still available to cool up-and-coming bands (as far as I know)

Young people are often coming up to me in bars and saying ‘stop looking at me while you rub your crotch, old man.’ But I sometimes imagine they’re asking me for advice about cool band names. Here’s what I’d suggest:

  • Unsuitable Governance Arrangements
  • Deviated Septum
  • Margaret Carlson-Pitt: Scientist, Raconteur, Mother
  • The Cunts
  • Dirty Hostile Children
  • Cross-Jurisdictional Multi-Agency Taskforce for the Investigation of da Funk
  • The Ruptured Fauns
  • Unisex Disabled Parenting Room
  • Beatle
  • The U2s

After all, I made Chocolate Starfish what they are today.

And Jet. Sorry about that.

I think I once saw Deviated Septum. They were supporting Camel Toe Joe and the Lilydale Stop Sign Lickers. Great show.

Plum's Penny Dreadful said...

The Wretching Bagels, The Bush Pruners (girl band), and The Paddywhacks. All available, if you can imagine that.

Whale Sushi -- now there's a name to make a band moll heart's flutter!

Seriously, I think you should be writing TV comedy or something.

I've always liked Dramatic Weight Loss.

Then, of course, there was the friend's cousin's band: The Beef Curtains.

Thrush and the Cunts have a good song on the Dogs in Space soundtrack.
