A list from The List

Posted By on Sat, May 26, 2007 at 1:48 PM

Scanning The List week after week and being fond of words and also being compulsive can equal only one thing: Making lists of band names that have some linguistic similarity! This project is amusical, but please feel free to point out any musical connections in our lovely comment section.

List #1: Bands who have put together two (or in one case, three) words which together do not make a word. Yet the bands have taken these Frankenwords as their names, rendering them words after all! Shove it, OED. (No, just kidding! We love you, OED!)

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
