Best and worst band name of the month
Anyone who has ever played in a band knows that coming up with a name is one of the hardest parts. If you doubt that, just look at the listings in The Seattle Times each week. We do. Whew!
Some of these names are just, well, really dumb! On the other hand, some are wonderfully creative. Though it’s borderline offensive, I love the Denver band name, Tequila Mockingbird. On the other hand, the folks who named their band Boat — have they ever searched for their site on the Internet? Boat? Really?
All of which is by way of announcing our latest SoundPosts feature:
