Splish Splash, I Was Takin' A Bath

Band names, good band names, are frequently thought up my musicians. I know, it's an odd thing, but when you think about it, it's not that odd. Consider who all has input into the naming of an album: musicians, of course, but then there's also drummers, girlfriend, managers, producers, lawyers, all sorts of people who really have no place in naming a band.

Let alone an album!

So it's with great joy that tonight we can present to you a Band Name, and an Album Name Of The Day, inspired by the famous Mr. Lee Presson of Lee Presson and the Nails, and finalized by the whistler Barnabas Truman!

See, Mr. Presson suggested creating an atmosphere of "instant fun" by putting a strobe light in the shower. The words "wet disco" were thrown about, and Mr. Truman applied the coup de gras:

Wet Disco!: the new album from Shower and the Strobe Lights! Come on, how could this NOT be an awesome, rockin' disco band! Now, given the somewhat ...interesting implications of the name itself, we suspect it's probably going to be contemporary disco and take itself a bit less serious than anything you might have seen in a John Travolta movie.

On a slightly more serious note, we're not aware of any currently available recordings by Truman, but Presson and his band The Nails have quite a collection of excellent swing and dance music which is, if we're not much mistaken, available on their website and on the iTunes store (but we recommend the website, because the band gets a bigger cut and we want them to keep making music). We've got all their albums and play them a lot.

  1. "instant fun" would also be a fun band name, probably electronic pop. or it could be a fun song name also
