Jo Taylor Great band names (109* d) RE: Great band names 11 Jun 99


Den - where were you? I played in a band called 'Free Beer'! (based in Exeter, UK). Only had to put up a poster saying 'Free Beer tonight!!!'
My favourite name was a women's theatre group called 'Cunning Stunts'...
Also in Devon - Eddy Stone & the Lighthouses, Spinach for Norman (there's a long & tedious story attached to that one), Malone's Rangers
But, isn't it strange - when you have a new band, the naming is the most difficult thing...I was in a band which we called 'Mr Smith's' for six months - due to lack of imagination & anonymity (& because we played 'The Piper Through the Meadow Strayed', the theme tune for a Uk TV program called Mr Smith's Vegetable Garden!) - interestingly most enquirers for bookings imagined they'd heard of us - a cosy name.
