Unwanted band names

Do you have any hints at what you are doing musically? That may help the good people of this realm come up with ideas?

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 :’(
