    Also Geordie (or Mackem?): Gateshead Revisited - four or five rough-as-fuck northern lads pissing about playing at being posh cunts from Berkshire, like an ironic inverted Mumford & Sons.

    I reckon 'Venus Guytrap' would be a great name for a burlesque performer. Playful, floral, with just a hint of vagina dentata.

    Yeah that last one was inspired by seeing a bottle of Iranian Vimto in a shop in my hood.

    Sorority of the Spectacle and The Male Gayz are both stupendously, stupendously good

    I don't know if I can come up with anything on that level but I thought I'd have a go

    We Will Scatter Shatner – cover band that playing Flipper in the style of Shatner, or vice versa
    Erdoganja – conceptual doom metal with all lyrics in Turkish, actual musicians to be Japanese (i.e. Corrupted) or, possibly, Finnish
    Oh No You Thucydidn’t! – conceptual queercore about the Peloponnesian War
    Degenerative Grammar - post-Chomskyan deconstructed no wave

    Eric Dolphyn - free jazz meets dolphin song
    Mingus the Merciless - 1959-64 Mingus meets b-movie scifi, acoustic afrofuturism
