This seems more like a list sort of thread, not the anecdote nook.All band names are good band names. Especially horrible band names are great band names. "Butthole Surfers" and "Kajagoogoo" are equally brilliant.
I went to a Sam Goody in the 80s looking for these big plastic q-tips to clean my 4-track tape deck's heads. I was staring at the cleaning products when a woman who worked there asked if she could help me find anything. I told her I was looking for lint-free swabs. She said she would go see if they had any, and proceeded to thumb through the albums under "L".
I went home and made a band named "Lint Free Swabs".
You know, I remember a band that had named themselves after a rather interesting event in history. That band's name was a bit odd, unless you knew about the connection to history. Well...sorry.....I guess that's more anecdotal than listy.... Please disregard. . . .I try but you keep sneaking them in there.
