If you started a band today.....

what would you name it?

If I formed a band, we'd be called:

Doom Horse.

Why? No idea, just like the sound of it.

If I went on to form a little side project, we'd be called:

The Kick-Jack Maghees.

At some point, I'd be part of a one-time only supergroup, and we'd be called:

Planet Tooth

How about you?

Alcibiades And The Herms.

Hey, at least it makes more sense than Echo And The Bunnymen.

I can only think of great band names at random times. Not when called upon to do so.

The Quiet Minority. We'd play the best damn prog you've ever heard.

Would you play a 12 minute version of 11 O'Clock Tick-Tock? You would, wouldn't you?

The Supremely Psychedelic Wankers

27 minute songs with no focus or particular genre holding it back. Videos that cause acid trips when you just describe them. It's the definition of ego-stroking self-indulgence. Plus, we can throw in some noise solos that don't go anywhere to please Pitchfork.

No, we wouldn't. We would play a 24 minute version of 11 O'clock Tick Tock in 29/16. The song will begin with a 4 minute bass solo.

If I were record, no...wait...craft a prog album, it would be a single 165 minute song. When the record company tells the band that it won't be able to fit on not just one, but two discs, and can't be released, I'll throw the tape into a paper shredder in a fit of righteous anger, thereby cutting the tape into thousands of tiny pieces. The remaining pieces will all be burned onto individual discs and sold. The (approximately 1,134) discs will have to be played all at the exact same time for full effect. There will be a festival in the Sahara Desert where I will gather together 1,134 people so that the world may witness the glory of what I will dub "Hypsilophodon".

The only vocals on the album will be me imitating a Tibetan monk run through a vocoder, run through a tin can, run through an octave pedal, then run through another vocoder. The first 14 minutes of the album will be simply one guitar note delayed over and over.

It can be done, actually.
