I'm just looking up some bands that I found in the "Now Playing/Night Life/Rock and Pop" section of a year old New Yorker magazine. Found some good stuff too, New Bomb Turks ("an explosive garage band of spiky-haired Buckeyes . . ."); WhoMadeWho (Danish, "disco-punk [but] actually remarkably versatile and always entertaining"); Beach Fossils ("Brooklyn favorites offer a moody update on the sun-drenched beach hits of the sixties); Woven Bones (". . . the primal spirit of drugged-out and droning garage punk").
So here's some good advice: when picking a name for your band, don't pick something that won't allow a successful search on YouTube. All of the above bands passed the test, they were easy to find. Then I looked for a band named "Secret History." YouTube listed thousands of vid's about the secret history of everything under the sun, except the band. I was curious, since the band make "lushly emotive pop by adding big guitar hooks to chilly synthesizer work and sweetly harmonized choruses . . ."
Maybe I'll try Google. "Secret History," and "band," maybe add "Lisa Ronson." How to word search is such a critical skill these days.
