  1. Heheh… reminds me of my mum falling about laughing listening to the late great John Peel of an evening when I was a teenager. She was a massive Half Man Half Biscuit fan, mostly due to the obscure song titles (99% of Gargoyles Look Like Bob Todd, anyone?). Her favourite band names from the period are still Roaring Lard and the Bastard Kestrels.

  2. Haha – My favourite here are ‘Death by Kite’ and ‘Imagine I Had Hands’ – WTF! I’ve always enjoyed obscure band names ‘Massive Head Wound’ was also an old favourite, although I’m not sure whether that was real or it came to me during a binge drinking session… either way it was funny… at the time. To these, I’ll also add ‘Roaring Lard’ from Sadie’s message above… absolute genius. Cheers!!

  3. When People Were Shorter And Lived Near The Water was always a favourite of mine.

    Hi there Richard

    Stumbled upon your post while googling our band name.
    If you like I can send a copy of our cd to you should you not already have one? 🙂
    Just send me an email with your address and I’ll send it to you.

    Hope to see you out there.
    Carsten (the bastard half of The Poet Bastards)
