Name my band!


Recommended Posts

Well to me "project" smacks of avant garde bleeding-edge music. Which, as that isn't my taste in music, would put me off right from the start. (Or maybe I've been watching too much of the prog-rock stuff on TV this week!)

 

As for Lyveden - what would I google?

 

"What did that guy say at the gig? Let's try... Liveden?"

 

"Nope..."

 

"Lived in?"

 

"Nah..."

 

"Live den?"

 

"Nada..."

 

"Oh to hell with it, let's go to the movies instead."

 

Mind you, I'm in no position to criticise anyone else's band name...

 

Cheers

 

Graham

 

PS: There's a band with a name I wish I'd thought of: "For one night only".

I know that some band members are fond of 'The Lyveden Project' and it does have a certain mystery. Do you think it would be a handicap to have that name in the google age?

Yes. I remember a band from Wales in the early 80's. They had a minor UK hit with a song called Doot Doot. They're name was originally relatively unpronouncable and was "spelled" as a graphic spiral squiggle (art school kids, what can I tell ya?). They eventually settled on the name Freur which isn't much better.

 

How about Easy Pieces. That was my old band name from a quarter century ago. Very unlikely I'll ever need it again.

Another question.

 

How important do you think it is that the name is easily spellable and googleable?

It shouldn't matter too much, you just add all the different spellings you can think of to your HTML headers of your website. They're just some code that the search engines spot and not seen by people viewing the site. Having a weird spelling would probably be better as it would be fairly unique and come up high in any searches.

Probably be in 8 out of 10 on the first page! WOW!!!!!

I don't wanna kill this thread (butcherNburn is trying relentlessly, but people keep posting :grin:) but have you considered keeping the name (I like The Lyveden Project - much like fungus, it grow on you) and just spending some money towards a backdrop with the band's name? Throw in a www and a dot com and you're set :thu:

Myspace/google shouldn't be a concern. In my neck of the woods there is a local band by the name of Awful Waffle. There are other bands by this name in other parts of the country (none of them are famous.) that go by this title. They added visit us at myspace Awful Waffle NJ. Pick a band name add UK or London to the end of the internet adress and people will find it.

 

I like getz's submission for Punching Donkeys
