if you have any extra band names floating around, could you please post them in this thread? i’ve been trying to name a new project for the past 13 months and now production starts next week. i got nothing. i’ll post my failed attempts here from the studio in a few days…
Haha, are you sure?!? We had plenty, but probably not what you are looking for!
Eyes of Ibad (dune reference)
Inflatable Love Foundation
Carry the martyr
Quellcrist Falconer (Political Activist in Takeshi Kovacs series of novels by Richard K Morgan)
Do you have any hints at what you are doing musically? That may help the good people of this realm come up with ideas?

always thought his name was weird but didnt know it was a literary referance
thanks for the list!! so the project includes custom locked groove records on 4 turntables with an effects mixer and a live organist. who’s really really good at playing the organ. and also found sound collage via cassette tapes.
i guess one of our main concerns is that the name can be easily read and pronounced by non-native english speakers as well. but at this point its super fun to hear any and all unused or discarded ideas by others, in case it sparks something else more relevant.
How about ‘Wurlygig’?
If you’re into Cyberpunked, noir-ish, pseudo-political sci fi then look up the Takeshi Kovacs books. Really good. Get weirder with each follow up. Sadly Morgan has said that is pretty much the end for the series :’(
Remember the band and number fad of the 90’s?
^____ Could yield interesting port activity
EDIT: First album “Stay Quiet”
Equals the Enemy
The Me That No One Sees
Do More Seymour
Pork Induced Foot Prison Insomnia
there is a band name generator site (which i used to torment my partner with by reading out loud the most ridiculous suggestions) but once in a while it did generate something half not bad, i actually saved some i liked, here they are:
A few more from another list I was keeping:
heard it’s fake
a long shadow across the face
a swarm through the fog
Fat Rebuilt from Memory
trawl song lyrics and film dialogue you like
or revive a now defunct band:
“Diam”… it’s indonesian for ‘shut up’
sounds like a cool project
can’t wait to hear it
The harsh noise wall band I will never form is called Drone Draper.
(Sorry I know that’s not helpful)
