Band Names Anyone?

So we're looking for a band name. We're not too fussed. Funny, witty, creative, stupid, dark, etc., it doesn't matter. Have u got any ideas? Please share:)

13 musings:

I was a member of a Jazz-Rock-Fusion band in the seventies called "Spiritual Recipe" and we dished out all kinds of "underground" music which was the in thing in those halcyon times of Hippies, Flower Power and the scramble for Peace, peace signs et al.

My suggestions would be as follows:-

1. Valhalla (in Greek Mythology it is the place where people slain in battle go to spend the rest of their days)

2. Butterfly

3. Styx

4. Metamorphosis

5. Q Train

Good Luck guys!

confab: thanks! I am 59 going on 60 now and live and work in the Middle East as an IT Consultant in Riyadh. Did play a little bit here with a couple of expat jammers, one Brit (Sax), an Indian (Funky Bass), one Filipino (Rhythm Guitar & Vocals), an Egyptian (Keyboards) and a Saudi (electronics & synth) until 1990 but haven't played since. The gang have all dispersed to all parts of the world.

During our hey days in Colombo we, "Spiritual Recipe", consisted of Dylan Lye (ex Jetliners and now in HK), Rasmar Lye (now playing at the Hilton), Ezmal Lye (Aussie), Dr Nalin Jayatunge (Sax), Reza & Ameen Deane (ex Amazing Grace), and myself.

We used to do the best of SANTANA from the "Abraxas" Album and lots of other jazz and dance stuff.

My wife and I were in Colombo for two weeks in December/January last and we stayed at the TransAsia where we were able to listen and enjoy the music of some of the new and younger bands in town. It was very nostalgic.

Would love to jam again when we are there next.

thanks for your comments fazli. i'm almost certain that you know my dad and his bros as they were royalists too and in the same age group. for anonimities sake i better not let out who they are. haha. anyway, soon enough i will put up a website along with music released from the new band.
cheers!

hey man, thats good to know. a Royalist is always a Royalist...

keep up the jammin' and stay kewl.

would love to know whose son you are? I belong to the '59 Group at RC. Send me a mail, man. Tell me who you are. Time's catching up on us oldies.

BTW, in the sixties we had a western music jazz band at RC called the Royal College Swingtette. Thats where I started to play dsrums and even read sheet music. We had a grand old master named Amerasinghe who had just returned from the USA and started the band. People like Gabo Pieris, Ishan Bahar, were the forerunners in the band. I played for a while too. We did gigs at dances too, as schooolboys. Can you beat that?

life was good, then...
