Sometimes, we have a funny story that leads up to a band name, and some days we have a really boring or idiotic story that leads up to a kick-ass band name.
Today is the second kind.
See, we were crashed out on the couch after a tasty dinner (what we had is immaterial, but suffice it to say that it was fantastic) and watching Secondhand Lions, which is a truly great movie. I mean: lions, sword fights, pesky relatives, the French foreign legion, crotchety old Texans, biplanes, helicopters, shotgun fishing, this film's got it all! But really, the neat stuff was all happening on the screen and really had very little to do with the people lolling on the couch in a food coma. But then! Inspiration struck, and we had the Band Name Of The Day:
Lions In The Cornfield! This needs to be a soul band, or maybe a southern blues band. Hell, you could swing it as an African spirituals band, if you wanted to! In any case, it'd be a great name for any body doing that sort of rhythmic soul sound, marrying the deep south back to the African roots both in name and philosophy.
Or you could make it a self-conscious reggae band from Kansas, but that just wouldn't be nearly as fun, would it?
