View Full Version : Help me name my fake band

07-15-2007, 09:56 PM
So, I'm never sure where to put a thread, so I hope it's ok here. One of my characters (in the first piece of fiction I've written in awhile :)) is in a band. I'm setting up a myspace page for him to flesh out his character. (AKA Writers Block) A friend and I are working on the music, but for now I'll blame the lack of music on in band fighting.

Their musical inspirations are "The Clash, The Sex Pistols, Jefferson Airplane, U2, The Beatles, Culture Club, The Rolling Stones, Hanson, Led Zeppelin, The Dead, The Who, The Doors, The Ramones, Pink Floyd, The Spice Girls" They're having some internal squabbles." Some of the band names are jokes.

I used to be a flight attendant and it's a pilot term for something they check during the preflight. I heard it and wrote it down thinking I would use it if a band ever popped up in one of my stories. Doesn't look like it's going to though... You're totally welcome to it...I just want to see it in print :D

when I was a teenage punk, some friends of mine here in the uk had a band called 'Free Beer', which at least got people to read the advertising poster!

Where? Where?

(I didn't notice any other words in the message.)

Foul Matter. Check out Martha Grimes spoof of the publishing industry of that title

And how do I get an Avatar?
