There are a lot of terrible band names out there. Of these bands, many suffer from a pressure to be cleverer-than-thou and that usually results in some really, really bad puns. The only way to overcome this is to be in a really fucking good band. Austin shoegaze noise punks Ringo Deathstarr must know this, and they’re better because of it. They’ve toured with the Smashing Pumpkins and are known for putting on an oppressively loud live show a la Nothing. You might not want to tell your friends the name of the band you’re seeing, but you’re definitely going to want them to come along.
