Day 204: it's raining, it's boring.
It's raining like a bastard and has been all week. So I've been doing some of my favourite indoors activities; following random paths across the internet and trying to think of cool band names. As it happens, the internet is a bit of a bugger when it comes to band names. Why? Because every time you think of a cool one, you're just one google search away from ten other bands already called the same thing. It sucks. I have been trying to name several projects for months and months now, and have come up with a tonne of cracking ones that are already taken. I've started to wonder actually, whether it matters that there's a band in Jordan with the same name as my band in Sydney (yes I know I don't actually have a band right now but let's just pretend). Anyway, on today's internet adventures I was reminded of some really cool band names I will never be using: The Runaways - teenage girl awesomeness. My Bloody Valentine - blood, love and horror movie coolness. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - sofa king cool. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - yeah man. Joan Jett and The Blackhearts - so freakin rock, and yet girly too. The Drums - I just like it. Oh yeah, and possibly the coolest band name of all time, The Who. The who? You know who.
