Tell Us About The Pixies

Two great turns of phrase, among many:
– “screaming mass of flesh” describing Black Francis
– “psychotic Beatles” in reference to the band

Mission Statement For Your Band

Band Name Bureau has a Twitter account, an Instagram Feed and a paid subscription service. The guy who started it began as an AV Club compiler, and the Ten Year Retrospective of Band Names was stellar. Included are links to bands, songs, and desolate wastelands like MySpace. With all respect to Fartbarf, my favorites:

Here Comes Old Vodka Tits
Coach Said Not To
Carlos I’m Pregnant
Diagnosis? Bastard
Okilly Dokilly (“the world’s only Nedal band”)

I have no idea if these bands are any good, but I’m sure that you music industry veterans can confirm it doesn’t matter, it’s all about your name.

I think if someone cleaned up the audio, Carlos I’m Pregnant wouldn’t be half-bad.
