Suggestions - I need a band name!

Post by lunabass » Mon Feb 11, 2008 3:56 am

HELP!

So we been at it for 3 months but still nothing sticks. We're a 3 piece (drums & keys x 2) playing live drum'n'bass with a bit of dub thrown in for good measure.

Any Ideas?

names never mean shit until the band gives the name meaning.

story I like is James Iha talking about the name Smashing Pumpkins, he compared it to Echo And The Bunnymen, like wtf? (echo was the drum machine) Billy Corgan said they really could have used ANY kind of fruit for the name (in total Billy Corgan dry sarcasm.)


what band names make sense anyway? I could throw them out but that's easy. I guess names like Amy Winehouse, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake...

Just to let you know, a Title is something to judge a book by.

Make sure you don't have a shit name, it can be hard to take things back.

Unless of course you have dissociative Identity Disorder...
