I like that.  It reminds me of two things:
1. My friend Jill is convinced that all bands should get their names from crossword puzzle clues.  Next time you see a crossword puzzle, read through the clues with that mindset.  Sometimes they're awesome.
2. Another name I had an idea for that wasn't a clue, but sounds like one is "Anagram for Genius."

Band names on hand:
The Tarsiers
The Bumping Uglies <--- totally ska!

In high school, my crowd got together and formed a random fucking band called Spatata.  Had a website, but it's defunct now... we did, however, write five songs, record three, and get the operatically trained soprano to scream like insanity in an electroclash-dance-core-whatever song about pirates! (YSI!)

I formed Chuckie Anvil with one of them but we never had a chance to do anything 'cause we went off to college and are never in town at the same time.  He does is own stuff (Books-ish found sound and experimental and noise and now DJ mixing) under the name sexwithdeadpeople.com.

Now I've got another band which hasn't been named yet.

My friend at Grinnell is in The Ugliest Band Ever.

Quote from: "Bernard"
I'm predisposed to geological band names. A geological glossary is veritable goldmine (rimshot) of names:

Alluvium
Angle of Repose
Aquifer
Batholith
C-Horizon
Daughter Product
Elastic Rebound Theory
Flume
Heat Engine

and so forth. I don't know if I'm ready to rock as hard as I'd have to in order to live up to a name like Batholith. I can only make one mano cornuda while strumming, after all.
Oh my god.  I need to take my band name from those sort of things.  My girlfriend is a geology geek, and she would fucking love it.   Very Happy

I've had Cut Yourself Open on the shelf for a good three years now.  Still don't quite have the technical chops to record anything that could appropriately be called Cut Yourself Open, but I'm getting a little closer every day.

If I was ever in some really heavy punk group, I'd want to call it Long Island Toll Booth.

After the whole Elian Gonzales thing (remember that?  One of his parents wanted him to come back to cuba, one of his parents wanted him to continue to stay in America?  He was living in Miami with some family, and they wanted to adopt him?)  His relatives were referred to collectively by American news agencies as "The Miami Relatives," and one week when the story was big, The Onion ran a little headline that said "Hundreds of punk bands change names to 'The Miami Relatives'"

But there are no Tool booths here on Long Island?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Maynard Keenan lives in the L.A. area, right?

Actually, now I think "Troll Booth" would be a pretty good name for a band.

Your friend at Grinnell?  I went to Grinnell, a long time ago, and my wife's little brother is there now.

Hey, wait a minute.  Is The Ugliest Band Ever on any of the Freesound compilations?  He gave me a couple of those last year.

It's also a Terry Pratchett story I seem to recall.

Don't think so.  They haven't recorded properly yet; I got to hear the rehearsal tapes because he wanted constructive criticism.

There's a band in Omaha called "The Sons Of...". So whenever they play a show, they take on the name of the venue. E.g.: The Sons of The 49'r, The Sons of Sokol, etc.

Let's name RoyBiggins's one-man band, everybody!

I suggested "Weevil Master".

Also:

-"Grappler"
-"Riggins KilRiggins"
-"The Strokes (NO, THEY stole it from ME)"

No.  Are you mostly just playing accoustic guitar?  'Cause then, I'd be inclined towards "The Stab Wounds".

Sometimes acoustic, sometimes electric.  I feel like I should post some MP3s, but I'm kind of a-feared to make them publicly available, since all I have are real shoddy at-home demos.
