Bands with long names [Oct. 27th, 2011|05:04 pm]
Richard Clegg
This afternoon I've been listening to music from bands with long names. Started with the only moderately long: "A Place to Bury Strangers" and then went to "I love you but I've chosen darkness", "...And you will know us by the trail of the dead", "An experiment on a bird in the air pump", "The strange death of liberal england" and finally settling on my favourites, "The eighties matchbox b-line disaster".

I was running out of long names and didn't fancy "My life with the thrill kill kult" or "The presidents of the united states of america" which, despite being fine bands, just didn't fit my mood. So I googled long band names and discovered the existence of "The Powers Of Darkness Shall Rain Blood Upon This City For 500 Years". Unfortunately, I pretty much only discovered their existence. I could not find a track to listen to on the web anywhere. However, I was pleased to find that if I type their name into Amazon.com then the closest match is:
Organ Works by Ned Rorem, the track listing for this leads me to believe it is Quaker inspired church music. I wonder what search algorithm amazon uses? Try it for yourself -- mystifying:


Shamefully the band had no biography on lastfm so I took the liberty of adding one. Feel free to edit:

I wish you'd post on LJ more often...

The best I can come up with off the top of my head is : "IfWhiteAmericaToldTheTruthForJustOneDayItsWorldWouldFallApart" by The Manic Street Preachers. I'm hoping it scores extra for its willful disregard of punctuation!

I still read LJ but I don't often write anything that feels long enough... actually the Manics do have some good long track titles "If you tolerate this then your children will be next."
