The Handle Chronicles

Well, the band with no name that had a name is now back to being the band with no name, because of a dissenting vote. So I throw it open to the crowds - name that band! Thus far, we've called ourselves for convenience 'DeSk,' (acronym of the initials of the original four members' first names) and 'PCMA' (acronym for 'The Port Chester Music Authority'). The recent name - which we'd thought of as the actual name - was 'The Tappan Sea,' but was recently called on account of not being liked by the singer, who initially disliked it and then test-marketed it to confirm her dislike. For the record, it was the guitar player who shot down the first two.

So, any band names for the imaginary band you've always wanted? We're lightly stumped.

It would be one thing if our initials spelled out "glow" or "jetpack" or "curious pancake" or something like that...and the other always sounded like it would be an "all-Vanilla Fudge" and Chicago cover band that our dads might be in.
They would be like The Little River Band with a horn section playing Styx songs.

If it helps, I really like the water theme.

"all-Vanilla Fudge"?
And thanks for pointing out that I'm not the first to throw a wrench into the naming process. (c;

Yes, since all of us do live nearish water/have to CROSS water to get to practice, I agree that water is a theme that wouldn't hurt to run with.

In Shaun's defense, 'DeSk' and 'PCMA' were always kind of jokeish. Karl and I still would like to keep 'PCMA' as the name of the mobile recording studio.

Did I ever mention that Jim Doller's cousin was Tim Bogert, the VF bassist?

Yeah, we tried that once. We'd be better off drawing names from a hat.
