    As mentioned elsewhere, OH has played in a few pub bands, and his latest ensemble would now like a name. I know we have a few musos here, so wondered if anyone could suggest something? OH has rejected my suggestion of The Gut Spasms - can't think why:D You get one point per suggestion, two points if it's a half-decent name, and three points if it makes me laugh. The winner gets... umm... a free ticket for their first gig, but don't hold your breath...

    They play rock/pop/rock & roll covers, e.g. Queen. Foo Fighters, Sex Pistols, Stones, though OH wants to nudge them towards the more edgy stuff - more Foo Fighters, maybe Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age... I quite like the name Alien Concept but he said that's too prog.

    Apart from the backing singer who is in her 20s, they're all later middle age, so 'Young Blood', 'Lock Up Your Daughters' and similar aren't going to work...

    Nah, Muse is no good, it's been taken ;) I wonder if OH's drumming is up to Muse? He found the bass playing rather challenging!

    If you want to waste even more time, there's an awesome band name generator here: Band Name Generator And when you've tried that, you must try the lyric generator. Select a load of words to include, and your style of music - I chose metal, though it could be interesting to see what it did with the same words in Justin Bieber style, and it came up with this....

    Mistress of Drumming

    Faster than a lurcher
    Terrifying lion
    Enraged and like a percher
    She's half woman and half bryan

    Mistress of drumming I'm pulling your lead
    Twisting your rope and smashing your glass
    Blinded by me, you can't see the swede
    Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you contrast
    Mistress
    Mistress
    Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you contrast
    Mistress
    Mistress

    Twenty is the number of the lion.

    A sexy witch nestled somewhere in time,
    A hot dungeon - no warnings, no signs
    Judgment day and the a grey bed arrives
    Eventually, they all commit crimes

    The glass went SMACK, there was no use turning back
    'Cause I just had to see, was a lion watching me?
    In the mist the rope twists
    Was all this swell, or just some kind of hell?

    Twenty is the number of the lion.

    Is it the end, my friend?
    Mistress you're going 'round the bend
    Half woman and half bryan
    No, no, please, no
    Twenty ... twenty

    Ah, good point! It's so long since they've been able to get together and practise, and I've never seen them play, so I'd forgotten the line-up!

    Live music will probably be one of the last to return from lockdown too I guess. Such a shame, though have they come across Jamulus? It's great for collaborating/playing over the internet apparently.

    I'll leave you alone now.

    Ooh, thank you! I've asked Mr R, and he's having a look at it now - he's definitely interested!
