Jo Taylor I need a new band name... (96* d) RE: I need a new band name... 22 Nov 99

This is great! Damn machine still playing up, I've been struggling all day to persuade it to do more than 16 colour, 640x480 (which is not nice when you're a graphic designer, one needs a few more colours...) now got 1024x768 high colour back (thanks to a friend) but it's totally illogical and I'm rather pissed off, it's 2.20am and I've just got in after a big hassle that you don't want to know about...
...So it's so wonderful to come in here and be cheered up. Might be a slight change of plan on the line-up, might all be Brits, a really excellent fiddle player & singer is interested in working with Steve & I, and another Devonshire immigrant will be movng here shortly who is a guitarist & singer. Keep them coming, yes, of course I'll let you know. Don't want to end up with a name by default which has happened in the past - you put together a band for one gig and think of a silly name and get stuck with it. We had a jug band in the UK which ended up being called Septic Tank by that process (it grew from sessions in the cellar bar of a pub called the Crown & Sceptre alias the Brown & Septic), but got changed eventually, can't really do weddings and suchlike with a name like that. And an Irish band in Devon landed the name Malone's Rangers.

Going back to the Pog one, didn't I once hear that the Pogues' name started as Gaelic for Kiss My Arse? (pardon me). Rambling again, good night!
