Band name?
« on: August 27, 2014, 06:21:32 AM »
Hey all!
I'm thinking of getting back onto the live scene again soon. & was chewing over a few band names. Let me know what you think of these.

Audio poison
My midnight empire
4am ice cream club (don't ask!) lol!

Any other suggestions please feel free to share!

I always wanted to call my last band Uncle Ted the Magician, but was overruled in favour of Roaring Trade.

I guess that worked better on a poster announcing our performances in the local pubs . . although my favourite band name was Phil Beer's "Free Beer" which always pulled them in.

Of your selection I prefer the 4am Icecream Club.  :tup:

 :hmm: James, that's a tricky one for me.  What style of music does (will) your band play?

Audio Poison is a cool sounding name. It probably depends on the musical stylings (making Mick's question a good one  ;)).

They're all good.  I kept looking at them, though, and seeing "Audio Empire".

Can't say why, but I used the term "Audio Plaid" once in a song and thought to myself that would be a cool band name.

But as Mick and SB said, what kind of style/genre will it be for?

Cheers for the response guys!
Yeah it definitely depends on the styling. Was thinking audio poison for a kind of rage against the machine style band or something heavy ish, think the other 2 are more mainstream names! Great idea [member=197]Scarebear[/member]  I like audio empire!

Thanks [member=51]Hinfrance[/member]  I do love that name too as it doesn't give anything away about the style of the band & if the band ended up being quite heavy then it adds a sense of irony too! It's such an important decision choosing the right name!
