so many

Cluster
The Soft Machine
Silver Apples
Ultravox
Cybotron
Konk
This Heat (tho i can't stand their music)
Clinic
Section 25
Thee Majesty
Slowdive
Liquid Liquid

some newer ones I like are:
Psychic Ills
Pixeltan
Gang Gang Dance

my absolute least favorite, cringe-inducingly bad band name of all time ( that almost kept me from listening to the eponymous artist's amazing music): Fad Gadget

Anyone ever notice how many band names are derived from Eno's "Taking Tiger Mountain..."? I almost think it may hold some kind of record. They're all good, too.

difficult to separate a band from its output, but:

i've always thought 'clap your hands say yeah!' is a great band name. shame about the music.

atari teenage riot is my other longstanding favourite.

Hate these sort of threads. Sort of thing I see all the old people doing on my Facebook

Nice little games they all play together rewarding trivia knowledge and mild witticisms
