I've been in oodles of band with some cracking names like....Shug McGlumpher's Blues Band, Noddy Crotch, the Batton Rouge Boot Boys, J.Arthur and the Rankers, Wille Cutts and the Circumcisionists, Vic and the Vapor Rubs, The Heaverley Brothers, The Tupper Twins. What about you ?

My current band, prior to our current incarnation as the working Blues Band Terraplane, used to enjoy inventing a new name for each gig. We were Rick Slick and the Torsion Bars, The Old Farts, Spooky Vapors and the Ol' Factory Shames, Toad Likker, Jack O'Lantern and the Boogie Men, Blues Lounge Ugly, and lots of others. One of my favorite unused suggestions was American Standard, although Viagra Jones is a close second.

Oh Lonesome! American Standard is funny as hell, especially when I think of how many I've cleaned!

My bands have always had pretty tame names, but there was Frankie and the Penetrators, a sort of classic rock boozer band. I wasn't alcoholic enough to keep up.

Mooh.

The high school is gearing up for the annual talent show. My son is in with a friend, a duo of mandolin and fiddle called "Mando-Flynn And Salt". Those are their nicknames at school (Ryan Flynn and Seth Alt). Ryan said that one of the bands that he watched at the audition had a great name. It was an alternative rock band called "Jam Like Jelly".

A local bluegrass group calls itself the New Panhandle Crabgrass Revival Band. {I may be missing a word or two.} Among my favorite defunct local names were the B Flat Natural Band who later re-formed and became the C Notes.

An Irish group that used to call itself Tideline now calls itself the Taku Gaels.

Busted Toed Mud Thumpers (did a nice rendition of June Apple down at Sather Gate)

Toxic Schlock (my nephew Dirk's punk garage band).

Morning Glory Sandwich Company (a real business in San Francisco back in the 1960's and an acid rock conglomeration).

Friendly Lettuce

Old and In the Way (vies with Asleep at the Wheel).

The Geyer Street Shieks (local St. Louis group)

and last (and certainly least because it played at one People's Park rally and then no more)

The Mexican Amalgamation Silver Extraction Process and Emiliano Zapata Memorial String Band

(the first part is an actual process using an amalgam of something or another to extract silver from silver ore but I can't remember what it is, maybe mercury?)

Brent Ford And The Nylons

PS. For non-UK catters, Brentford Nylons was a company which had a long-running TV ad campaign about 30 years ago. It sold really awful nylon curtains etc which could generate enough static to electrocute full-grown elephants. However, Steve Payne's band in Bristol, locally known as the Nylons, were great.

At a recent Deaf Shepherd gig they threatened to change their name to: Simply Rid or Iron Midden For those who don't understand Scots (the hard of hearing) a midden is a place where agricultural refuse was piled high until such time as the composting process was complete. I also play in a band who used to change name every week. We used Poor Genius once & Free Mince, & on one occasion when we realised we were all bearded we were called The Billy Colony.

My first professional band went by the leader's name which was Ed Ledson. The Band's name was "The Ledson Set".

After 3 months of rehearsing as it was a very involved show with everything arranged etc...we arrived at our first gig at some dive in Quebec.

On the marquee out front under "now appearing" was: "The Lead Sunset."

Just one of those true stories one never forgets. :-)

My mate was in a punk band called Menace.

They turned up at a pub gig to find themselves billed as 'Nuisance'.

Took the edge off the image a bit.

Mike Harding used to claim he was in a band called Emmanuel Cohen and the Four Skins.
