Listed below are links to weblogs that reference When Band Names are Like a Poem [by Emma Trelles]:


Baby Robots remains one of my all-time favorite band names. Secret PE Club isn't bad, either.

Me too - on both counts.

Great list! It would be intersting to see how they go according to genres.

I just have to mention that there is a band called Nothing Rhymes With Orange. I don't know if their music is any good, but I rhyme orange with storage and porrige all the damn time.

The names are all outstanding!

Let us not forget, my personal favorite:


You ROCK, Emma!

My favorite names are Tongues of the Heartworm, Laundry Room Squelchers and See Venus. The Secret P.E. Club are all a bunch of scoundrels.

I like rhyming orange with strange, which may make me strange but certainly makes me orange. And yes, you do rock, Emma.

I think slant rhymes rock.

The Weeds. The Baboons. Dore Soul. Six Silver Spiders. Unseelie Court. Basketcase. FOC. Groove Thangs. Roosterhead. YakMan. The Vagues. Wet Flower. The Goods. Raw B. Jae & The Liquid Funk. Manchild. The Methodone Actors. Jack Off Jill. SmokeDog. Radiobaghdad. Apex. Sinamen Skunk.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
