Seriously?! Friday

Last Friday I started my weekly installment of Seriously?! Friday, where I pick the worst artist/band name from my video screening meeting.

This week there were two pretty terrible names. So I'll name a first and 2nd place winner (loser?).

And without further ado, I present to you the runner up :

Vulture Whale. seriously?! what does that even mean. those are 2 very different animals. come on.

And the winner is (drum rollllllllllllllllll):

Dent May & His Magnificent Ukelele!!!!

seriously, dent?! thats just too long. and what makes it so magnificent?


  1. Sometimes we rock. And it's not when we're sitting around trying to come up with band names. Sometimes the band name thinking was getting in the way of the rocking! I forget what exactly went down, but we were in a hotel room in LA after a day of mixing the first record. There was drinking. There was a notepad. Words got written on it. And put next to one another. Then we got Google involved the next day to make the combination of words was unique. I know, I know. But it's stuck, and you are forced to consider it when you first hear it. Hopefully the music's like that. There! You heard it here first. Thanks, Lisa! Love,
    Jake (Vulture Whale drummer)

  2. Dear Jake,

    I'm sorry you had to see this post. But thanks for the explanation, and I do not think bad things about your music! It happens. I was in a band for a 2 seconds called some assembly required. seriously?! come on.
