#bandnameorigins numero dos... so far I have discovered that some bands just made up their names based on getting high (Green Day) asked a Ouija board (cheap Trick) or used combinations of member names or threw a dart at a map...not all stories are as interesting as the names. I decided to use The Thompson twins for my number 2 pick. Based on two bumbling detectives from the Belgian comic strip The Adventures of Tin Tin. Clips below...
At some point my brain decided that the ultimate way I want to be wooed, is for someone to declare their undying love to me whilst this plays in the background. Yes, it appears that I still want my life to be a Brat Pack movie.
Got to see Tom Bailey over the weekend, and he did a pretty great show. It's hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact it's been *30 years* since I saw Thompson Twins on the "Into The Gap" tour. Tom's gone a lot grayer than I have, though. :)
