Wot's in a Name?

Sorry. This is a Spades-endorsed rant. But what is it with indie bands & fooking silly names? Local bands in particular seem to subscribe to the three-parter, nonsensical name formula most rigidly.

Ever since Old Automatic Garbage broke through mainstream radio in Malaysia, there have been a slew of outfits with similarly rubbish names. Seven Collar T-Shirt? Nice stupid Playground? Citizens of Ice Cream?

Fer fook's sake. These monikers just scream 'we is just too clever by half' & are particularly irksome fer the simple fact that it showed band had no originality beyond throwing a group of syllables together. It also reeks of hipster bullshit
