Band Names?


J.R.M.30!

Recommended Posts

Why "Two Many Kittens", the name does not have a musical reference in it and it's vague at best, plus people will think it's a run-on sentence and not a band title. :-k

That's ok if you don't get it. You see, in my day, punkers were heavily into irony and dry humor. Kittens are not very scary, in fact they're very cuddly. Punkers liked things to be hard and sharp, like safety pins in the ears and real Mohawks (not the modern day Faux-hawk). So you see, if there were too many cuddly, happy kittens around it would make a real punker uncomfortable.

 

And did you just bring up Grammar in a band name? What the hell is that all about? BTW, I wrote "TOO" not "TWO".

 

And obviously you've never had a good band name ripped off from you, there's nothing more irritating than some loser taking you band name. If that happens after you've established your band you can fight for it, if some loser steals your band name before you establish the band, you're assed out of luck.

I guess people are to into to conserving their ideas for such kind of thought. I find it to be a good topic as there are no wrong answers to this question! =;

And yet, your previous reply incinuates that his "Too Many Kittens" is wrong. Hmmm...

My answer"? The Beatles. Or maybe just "Beatles". Too soon?

True story. In 1977 my drummer, bass-player and I (we were all between 15 and 18 years old) joined with a keyboard player and singer and started to think of a name. We liked three-letter ones like Yes, ELO, ELP and so on and, eventually, we came up with 'Sky'.

 

A year later, in 1978, that absolute bloody 'loser' of a classical guitarist John Williams joined forces with two more no-hopers, Herbie Flowers (once of T-Rex) and Frank Monkman (ex-Curved Air), and nicked our name!

 

They, of course, being such smart-alecs had the nous, contacts and, well, musicianship to actually release a record or two - meaning they, the parvenu's, could hold a better claim on the name.

 

B'stards!

 

Then that Complete Bloody-No-Hope-Loser-Tosspot (ermm....alledgedly) Rupert Murdoch starts his worldswallowing multi-media Empire...........

 

Sometimes just one "Harrummmmphhhhh!!!!!!!!!" doesn't suffice.

LOL, that's a great story, but I was talking about someone you know steeling the band name and using it to actually compete with the band they stole it from. Which has happened more than twice to me in the last 20 years.
