Battered Brains were named after a popular dish served in a Dunfermeline chippy by the father of band founder Ewan MacDonald. Deep fried MArs bars were not outré enough for MacDonald Senior.
Ewan and a bunch of mates learned to play 4 chords on some guitars in the summer of 1977, and toured extensively around Southern Scotland for much of the next 20 years with a mix of punk, Scottish Jacobite and Irish rebel songs.
There is a bootleg of a festival in Auchtermuchty recorded in the summer of 1984. Very rare.

Next, reeking of patchouli oil, please welcome Comic Background Radiation

Comic Background Radiation based their act on the very English stylings of Stackridge and the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. The fact that they attempted this in the 1980s electro-pop era is a testament to failed endeavour.
Such was the spirit of camaraderie in the band that when they had to give up touring they stayed together and founded Splott, Drippin, Coldstream and Tworivers, a firm making and exporting an incredibly successful line in Innovative Jams.

Innovative Jams was the soundtrack to a 'happening' in Bristol in1968. Inspired by events in San Francisco the previous summer, a group of avant-garde thinkers booked a small community centre and invited their friends overrfor the weekend. Various musical instruments were set up for anyone to play, art materials, and some projectors with psychedelic slides.
Stupid quantities of drugs were consumed, so much so that no one remembered to set the cameras running, or the tape recorder. There is one grainy photo of a young naked woman covered in paint, rolling on a long sheet of paper, though it could be a portrait of someone's Irish Wolfhound, depending on which way up you hold it.
A few people who attended have vague recollections of something happening on the Sunday morning.

Now, a big welcome please for Sine Qua Non Wave

Sine Qua Non Wave were formed in the white-hot fires of synthpop, on the premise that electronic music was exclusively composed using only sine waves. They then proceeded to flood the airwaves with sawtooth-wave based tunes. When this was pointed out to them their leader and songwriter, Keith Fruitsalt, packed all his synthesizers into a trailer, pushed it off Beachy Head, changed his name to Archie MacPherson, and opened a garage specialising in the renovation of Trabants.

And now, fresh from their world tour of Swanage, please welcome The Unerected Eurocats.

The Unerected Eurocats came out of the short-lived creative outburst in the Andover rap scene of the late 90s.
Tupac Mangle-Wurzle and Snoop Doggy Ferret-Fettler came together in 1997 in a cider-drinking competition on a farm near Micheldever. They subsequently spent 3 years touring the Southwest in a flurry of creative outpourings before retiring to breed bees near Salisbury.
Biggest hit was, of course, the unforgettable Biggest Combine in the 'Hood

And now, a big hello to FIFA Ethics Committee and Other Contradictions

FIFA Ethics Committee and Other Contradictions was originally a group of committee members associated with soccer who fancied being a band but they had no talent, hence the 'other contradictions' being added to the name.

And now, please welcome the group Flat 'n' fruity

The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad. Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love!

Does anybody have use for the band name The Very Rude Elevator Screamers?

Oh baby fuck yeah!

The Very Rude Elevator Screamers are a feminist punk collective from Portland, OR, who literally formed yesterday. With a background in Italian baroque opera, alternative rock, and homeopathic hamster yoga they hope to overcome the current divisions within the political left and see Warren/ O'Rourke 2020 come to fruition.

Vegan Pork Roast is a Meatloaf tribute band, who do a few Springsteen covers with the words changed, such as Quorn to Run and Quorn in the USA
They try to promote a healthy meat-free lifestyle.

And now, fresh from a residency at Caesar's Palace, please welcome
Scorned Beef!!!

Scorned Beef is actually a misheard name, it was meant to be Scorned Beats, but due to the accent of the leader, it became the product of bovines for consumption.

They have taken full advantage of this name now, playing to farmers who won't think the same about their cattle.

And now, please make welcome, Colonnaded Walkway

Seen this name today, thought it'd be appropriate for here:

Colonnaded Walkway have a limited repertoire of numbers, sticking largely to Handel's "Where Ere You Walk", Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Were Made For Walking" and Lou Reed's "Walk On The Wild Side". Unsurprisingly, this has earned them a reputation of being a bit too "niche" for general tastes.

So, back to Awitt's second suggestion Weird Castanets!
