A real bargain?

Have been looking for a CD copy of an album I used to have on vinyl many years ago. Having checked periodically on Amazon, I suddenly found it available – imagine my excitement at seeing it offered at a "low price".

GAOB low price

I think this is stretching the definition of "low" somewhat.

Band names derived from other bands' songs

Have always speculated about this ever since hearing about how Flock of Seagulls got their name. Limited list to date is:

  • Flock of Seagulls (line in 'Toiler on the Sea' by The Stranglers)
  • Ordinary Boys (Morrissey song of same name)
  • Pretty Girls Make Graves (Smiths song)
  • Deacon Blue (from Deacon Blues by Steely Dan)
  • Radiohead (from Radio Head by Talking Heads)
  • Sisters of Mercy (song by Leonard Cohen)
  • Death Cab for Cutie (song by Bonzo dog doo–dah band – or whatever they were called)
  • Simple minds (kind of from Jean Genie)
