My friend Patrick has a similar "problem" deciding on a band name. In his last 3 shows he performed as Skinny P and the Destroyers; Skinny P and the Birthday Bash; and Skinny P and the Handicaps. (See My Talented Friends Part One.)
Band names are fun, but so darn hard to choose. You want the name to reflect the music, but also the personality of the band members while making sure that it is memorable and of course, clever in some groupie-procuring way.
Do you remember being asked how many kids you wanted when you yourself were a kid? Your answer would be directly correlated to the number of baby names you thought were cool. "I want 6... Peter, Parker, Posey, Punxsutawney, and Bob." If I could start as many bands as I have cool names to name them, I would have 4 bands:
- The Sister Karamazov
- Fifths and Giggles
- Color Me Wicked
- Whole Notes from the Underground
