Dave Matthews Band, having apparently lost their minds, has announced in an e-mail that their new album will be entitled Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King. The band was done when LeRoi Moore died last year. Maybe this new album will prove me wrong, but I suspect not.
to be fair, it’s not really any different from something like “piper at the gates of dawn” or that really long fiona apple album title. of course, i would have said the band was probably “done” (at least as songwriters) about 9 years ago, but still.
At least “Piper at the Gates of Dawn” involves actual words strung together in a comprehensible manner. I can envision that. And, yeah, Fiona Apple’s was ridiculous. Here’s the full title:
Preferably the title of an album shouldn’t leave DJs and fans chagrined to speak it aloud. :)
OH! i did read somewhere this morning (after i posted that comment) that “groogrux” was leroi’s nickname…so that makes it make a little more sense with that context, i guess.
still, i’m not positive the band is even in any kind of position to pull in new fans at this point, so the people that are going to buy it are going to do so regardless of what it’s called.
still, it’s totally ridiculous.
Pink Floyd had a song, on Ummagumma, entitled “Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict.”
For short, I call it SSOSFAGTIACAGWAP, which has a really nice ring to it. :)~
I disagree – I’m looking forward to what they put out with this album more than anything since the Lillywhites leaked. While we’re on a Pink Floyd kick, a parallel record to Wish You Were Here would be the Best Case Scenario. Does that happen? Dunno. Want to find out though.
I’ve got a bike you can ride it if you like it’s got a basket a bell that rings and things to make it look good.
OK, I’m good now. :)
