Can you convince them to choose a new band name?

Agreed. I usually look them up on imdb shortly thereafter.

Well, I believe we're only going to be playing 4 songs from the 9 on the record live--we've written 7 new songs since I joined.

I still have no blummin idea what's going on though
Yeah, we burned through the three seasons in remarkably fast time. It's one of those shows where you sit down, intending to watch and episode or two, then the next think you know, you've watched eight episodes, it's 4 am, and then you say to yourself "just one more..."

With it being so good this season, it's kind of torturous to have to wait a week between episodes.

That's the only part of the tracklist causing issues. It's only 3 or so songs, so things would function quite nicely without it.

My first disc right now is a tour de force, but there's no way I can come up with a second disc since I've pretty much used all my good artists on this one disc.

It's the name of a character out of a Bob Dylan song who's a struggling farmer who lives in the middle of nowhere, and he can't make ends meet, and his whole family is going to starve to death and they have nothing left. So he kills his family and himself. It's about the darkness of humanity, and how far we will go if pushed to desperation.

I stay away from the giant lists--that's a bit too hard for me, since I like lots of music that is very widely genre'd.

Yeah.... I'm disappointed with the record, though, because the old guitar player was a bit sloppy. And I don't have the money to re-record his parts.

But most people aren't going to realise that. And personal names don't make for good band names.

Oh, and Bob Dylan sucks.

I hope the crowds know that because it sounds like a funk bassist.
