When I was in a jug band in high school we called ourselves

PRENDERGAST FARGANSWALLER AND HIS MERRY MARCHING SOCIETY FOR THE PRESERVATION OF INSIGNIFICANT CAUSES!

There wasn't an MC in the world(or at least around New York City)who could get it right.

The evocatively named "Johnny and the Prison Didn't Help Boys" from Sheffield.

Tribute bands throw up lots of punning potential. I always wanted to form a Marrilion tribute band called "Pish" and am currently working on "the Credible String Band"

There used to be a band in Manchester called "Right Band Wrong Planet".

A personal favourite was my mate Gerry's old band "Macho Men Crack Under Pressure"

Right now Manchester boasts the wonderfully named "Starless and Bible Black" and virtual folk-rock band "The Woodbine And Ivy Band"

I always wanted to have a band called "Meat Soup Enema".

Copied from a poster for a music night in Brum -

'Phat Boy Singh'

There are 'The Titanic Sycopators' - (they always go down well!) They really should do a CD called 'A band on Ship'

I have called with a band from South Wales called Llandaff Hope, and a band from mid-Wales called Cwm Dancing (great names)

I have also worked with Alf Alfa and the Wild Oats, The Carbolic Smokeball Company. Brown Boots and No Breakfast, the Electropathic Battery Band, Expanding Waist Band, Happy Daze, Melons for Ecstacy, Syphon the Python, the Top Tup Band and 'May Contain Nuts' (very appropriate given the lineup of Flos Headford, Rees Wesson and Chris 'Yorkie' Bartram)

For anyone vaguely interested there is a full list at
http://www.redowa.co.uk/sunshinearts/bands.htm

I'm to to 188, must make it 200 before I retire!

A friend was in a band called 'Les Miserables and the Proper Pissers' (and Les Miserables was the English pronunciation!)

Always been fond of "Cheap Suit Serenaders" -- and a local band no longer around, "Jiggle the Handle".

Not a real band name, but I'd bet it would be a good draw -- "Free Pizza".

In sea music circles I like "Starboard List" and "Three Sheets to the Wind".

But I think Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling keep coming up with the best name yet for a band -Fiscal Stimulus.

Since I am currently playing "Battle of The Bands" on Facebook, I get to see lots of name for bands - mostly forgettable, apart from the the unprintable, but I can honestly say that "The Fooles Troupe" is coming up the rating charts very nicely: we just need a few more bands to join our tour so we can get higher benefits and better gigs - they don't seem to want to hire nobodies...

Join thru our Facebook profile page.

There are a couple of bands whose names might not mean much to you if you haven't studied advanced mathematics: Axiom of Choice, and Aleph Null. Curiously enough, both play Iranian music.

Martin Pearson (note the initials) has put together a trio (note the quantity) called the MP3.

Klezmer bands like to come up with clever ways to get klezmer in their names. There's The Klez Dispensers, and an all-female group called Isle of Klezbos.

There was a couple who performed under the name Us Not Them (there was a reason, but it's a bit of a long story).
