LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY BAND (Click link to refresh your memory.)
Old pal Chris Murphy wrote in to say, “Either the guy on the right will be fired for gluing on a fake ZZ Top beard, or the gentleman in the center will be fired for his impersonation of the end-of-his-career Jim Morrison.”
Entirely reasonable. Old buddy Jon Hamblin said, “Today’s band is Men Without N, and here we see them ejecting a, uh, member. They will change their name to Sons of Imus.” Along with 10,000 other bands, we’re sure. Thanks, Jon.
The ever-reliable Man From the Future predicted, “After months of not getting any gigs, the band decided they only had one course of action. They tossed the singer into a passing garbage truck and changed their name to Tommy’s Shiny Shinflute.”
As usual, indisputable. All of those guesses, though, went over like, appropriately enough, LEAD BALLOONS. At least the Manchester, U.K., band gets raves in its home town. The site ManchesterMusic.co.uk said, “This is music to flop your fringe to,” whatever that means.
In more exciting news, Greg from former Mystery Band Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band (which we featured here), wrote in to declare, “I love your site! Thanks for picking us.” Greg notes that the band will be at the State Theatre on May 24.
