Don't know what it says about my state of mind that if something is handed to me and I don't know what's in it then the bad stuff doesn't exist but when someone came back to the office with a thoughtful gift of a pack of maltesers which proudly displayed there were "only 186" calories per pack on it I decided not to have it.

I find it hilarious,when I was first playing in bands we would look pretty hard to make sure the name wasn't taken(Pre internet of course). And changed band names later when we found a record or whatever of with our band name. Seems people don't really care,doesn't fill me with hope for the music,if there's no effort in the band name. Not that I would like the imposter Devo anyway.

And yes,I know it's very hard to come up with a unique name,but some just don't try.

I agree totally but I kind of understand it when it’s a common word or even something like Nirvana. Look up Faust on Discogs, in addition to the 70s German band taking up 3 or 4 different entries (they split up but agreed that once any of them were in a band it could be Faust so there were at least two versions of Faust active in the 00s), there are loads of bands and DJs who clearly couldn’t have bothered trying harder.

And in fairness, I had a band in school called White Noise but we found out after we gave up about the British electronic band. So I’m not blameless!

Common words are even less of an excuse.

Really?No one says, I wonder has that been used? It's not hard to find out these days.

I wanted to call this new band The Dark Ages but I looked it up and every version of that was already used. So we considered The Middle Ages, surely that was in use. The internet said not, iTunes, Spotify etc all said not. Bingo. However SINCE our stuff has been out there I have spotted another one with one song on a compilation album.
WE DID OUR RESEARCH, NOW YOU DO YOURS.

I see no problem with this review. Service in London pubs/cafes - I'm assuming it's London - is fucking terrible and everyone who works in cool bars/cafes here is a fucking prick. God I'm becoming so middle aged.

Young people having either resentment or amazement for old people being on the internet is a pretty consistent theme.
