Award-winning, long-time music journalist Bart Bull has compiled thousands of odd, obscure and funny band names and organised them into 25 highly-designed chapters including Best, Worst, Tribute Bands, Heavy Metal Bands, Heavy Metal Bands in France, Hip Hop names, Surf Bands, Punk ensembles, Japanese Bands with English names, Groups created for TV & Film, Country & Western outifts and band names with colours, places and the word 'Little' in them.A small sampling of Bull's choices for the Worst Band Names: "The Ultimate Spinach", "Menswear", "Milton Brown and His Musical Brownies", "The Prisonaires", "Archers of Loaf", "The Genitorturers", "Pink", "Cream 69", "String Cheeze Incident", "The Klanzmen", "Cap'n Jazz", "Jack B. Nimble And The Quicks", "Business Card", and "Starcastle". Each chapter features an introduction with Bull's unique and wittily acerbic prose. From the ridiculous to the sublime, this book travels through fifty years of music history and is for anyone with a healthy interest in music and pop culture or even those interested in words and language.
