Ever wondered how your favourite band got their name?

Well pop-pickers, look no further. ‘The Band Name Book’ has all the answers. From And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead through to ZZ Top, this book is a fascinating read and explains where the best-named bands got their names.

It does of course include yours and my favourite band, the Trashcan Sinatras. I remember when Paul told me he was going to join them. I thought ‘strange name’, but anything was better than The Shock Club or Hectic Circus (right Paul?).

Anyhow, the photograph below explains how the band came up with their name, but you knew that anyway didn’t you?
