Here’s a tip-of-the-iceberg round-up of band/musician/clothing frints, then.
To recap: you were asked to provide me with the names of between 10 and 20 bands or musicians whose names ‘contain’ an item of clothing.
We had some fine, fine responses. The judging policy was left very vague, and indeed the final scores evolved from a mish-mash of rationales… uniqueness, stupidity and precision, mental picture painting, bathos, invention all scored to varying degrees…
Here’s 20 of the finer efforts from a range of players. In fact not all of these scored points – technical reasons – but they gave me a warm frinty feeling.
Shoexsie and the Banshees (pictured, above)
Bachman Turner Overcoat
Pulled Apart By Corsets
Death From A Glove 1979
The Nightie Wah!
Tearrings for Fearrings
System of a Gown
Garter the Unfloppable Socks Machine
Keck’s Midnight Runners
The Velvet Underpants
The Falmers Boys
The Socks Pistols
Gloria Vest and Pants
Thanks then for those, and so many more…
Now to the results:
Mr. Dunn and Ms. Raincloud, who score 2 points each
Mr. Landi, who scores 3 points
Mr. Cleaver, who scores 5 points
and the outright winner is…
Mr. Martin, who receives 10 points!
Here’s a few of Mr. Martins finest moments:
The Disposable Heroes of Flip Floprisy
Ike & Tina Turnups
Bob Marley and The Tailors
Massive Hat Tack
The John Spencer Shoes Explosion
The House of Glove
One of these will be fashioned into an image by my hand in the not too distant. What a prize!
Thanks to all for playing… see you at Question 13 soon.
