A couple of days ago I got an e-mail from my bandmate Dar, with an “uh oh” and a link to this band. You can see what the problem is. Because WE are The Very Idea, dammit! At first, I thought it was no big deal, because they’re 2000 miles away, and who’s going to know? But I will admit, I was also caught up in a haze of back pain and exhaustion at the time, and since then it’s kind of nagged at me. Both of us, really. We really love the name. But we really don’t want to have to share it. This band has been using it since 2003. I used it on my blog dating back to only 2005, and honestly, I have no claim to what is a common turn of phrase, anyway.
I have created a poll below for your thoughts, and if you have any good ideas for a good name for an acoustic duo, we’d be glad to hear ’em in the comments.
I’m thinking we wouldn’t have had this problem with The Fiberglass Lutherans, even in Minnesota. I’m just sayin’.
