    ehh that music is more about low octave sludge guitar with gritty bass and slow solid drumming, with a lot of repetition. Like Kyuss.

    I wanted to name my band "Aural Fixation," but the other members found it inappropriate. It made perfect sense to me. You can borrow that name if you like it, since I never got to use it.

    I know what stoner rock is.

    rock/psych/metal/jam are all aspects of stoner, I think.

    the addition of funk and electronic sounds volatile.

    I look forward to hearing this, I hope you have a solid front man because it sounds like you'll need it.

    Yes... I'm mentally hearing a fusion of Morcheeba and the more upbeat Radiohead numbers (like Idioteque and part of the Paranoid Android cycle).

    My personal theory is that the cooler the band name is, the lamer the band will be. Like they squander all their coolness allotment on their name.

    meh... there are too many counter-examples to ever establish your theory as even generally true...

    (Guns n' Roses, Rage Against the Machine, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Who, The Dead Kennedys, The Grateful Dead, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, The Temptations, Led Zeppelin, The Band, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Misfits, Radiohead, Derek and the Dominoes, U2, Velvet Underground, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Stone Temple Pilots, Morcheeba)

    ______

    although I'm not sure what to think of Spinal Tap... that is undoubtedly one of the coolest band names ever, and I'm not sure they're (even as a fictional band) that good... though one or two of their songs were really cool...

    I'm caught between thinking names like Metallica and Def Leppard are pretty cool and super lame... the bands are obviously great bands...

    And what to think of Cream?!?!?!??!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry JJJ, you got me thinking about this...

    These were bands I specifically thought of as not having especially cool names. Add to that Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds The Tea Party, Arcade Fire and you see a an uninspiring, chosen-by-a-15yrold trend emerging. STP to me had a couple of good songs and not all that much else, contributing significantly to the formation of my band names theory.

    Having a name which is simultaneously pretty cool and super lame is absolutely necessary for metal bands imo. A name older people can choose to see as amusingly ironic, and young rebellious teens can inscribe on their pencil cases.

    The Doors, i.e. the doors of illusion? Well... I guess for people not in the know, it could sound a little stilted... but The Sex Pistols? Come on... oh well... subjective subjective I know....

    I can't believe you don't think Nirvana is a cool name though... that's just awesome... particularly when held against the kind of grunge they played... it's the sort of brash, super-intense name that made me think, before I heard them, "you kidding me? you? NIRVANA?"... and they lived up to the name... almost... (no band can ever quite live up to enlightenment.... per se...)

    Ah well...

    I really like the name 'Covered with Bees.'

    Because then, if you get a gig, you get to announce 'Hey, we're Covered With Bees, and tonight we're performing...'
