Since I formed any palpable appreciation of music at a very young age I've always held a fondness for silly band names. Imagine the hilarity the first time I encountered Splodgenessabounds, for example. This continues to this very day, my favourite this week being the Almighty Lumberjacks of Death (an old band, but their name is new to me).
Yesterday morning I heard the Portland, OR. band WAMPIRE for the first time and, really digging what I heard, thinking she would like Wampire equally, I informed Susan. My dear wife, however, is considerably less tolerant of stupid band names than I. "Wampire?" she snorted, screwing up her face. "More like Wankpire."
