Rupert Smooth and the Sandwitches is actually pretty great. I feel like they should open for James Pants.

Is there anything more interminable than being around band members who are trying to think up a band name?

When everything and anything is considered to see if it has some cosmic underlying meaning that will perfectly represent everything that this group is "about" (without trying too hard, of course)...

Every moment of every day becomes an endless game of free association...even going to the store to get groceries means that suddenly the entire inventory of the store is up for consideration...

2 Percent Milk?
Butter?
Corn Syrup?
Hydrogenated Oil?


...and now, Darby, you want to make this process a game?

This is how bad ideas like karaoke get started, you know.

Fortunately this game was designed to reverse the normally dull arc of a band's development. Now one can generate a solid name first ... if it's tolerable, invent a genre and start gigging. Boom. T-shirt sales guaranteed. Otherwise, just keep drinking.
