The City of New Babbage needs a new band

I’m thinking we should start a new band in the city.  Victorian Punk.  It’s all the rage.

Spread the love

    Who will be Sidney Unkind?

    Oy could be the juvenoile drummer, Jimmy Distasteful.

    Any spot for William Joseph Strongarm?

    (I know, not in the group, but i love green day)

      William Joseph Strongarm already has a band.  He calls it “Unripened Period of Time”.  They have a beautiful ballad called, “Rouse Me During Which Time The Ninth Month Ceases”.

    Only if I can be Simon Le Bon Bon.

    Who will be Cyndi Laudenum?  As you know, proper young ladies require a wonderful time.

      Have you heard emilie autumn’s cover of girl’s just wanna have fun?

      • Sredni Eel Sredni Eel August 22, 2010

        Yep.  I have a lot of her music stashed away in a vault somewhere.

    Perhaps a Deborah Harrington would be appropriate as well….

  7. MichaelD Mannonen MichaelD Mannonen August 22, 2010

    God Save the Queen, featuring Fredrick Quicksilver…?

    Alistair Coopersmith?

    Aethersmythe?

    Perhaps Alternate Current/Direct Current will peform their rousing rendition of Foul Feats Performed Quite Inexpensively?

  9. Glaubrius Valeska Glaubrius Valeska September 15, 2010

    Alright, here’s a relatively obscure one:

    The Jaegermonster Band Jawohl and their song Airship Trooper ?  Or the opui: Close to the Edgewater and  Stories of Aethernautic Oceans ?

  10. Glaubrius Valeska Glaubrius Valeska September 15, 2010

    Wait!  What about Elton Watercloset?

     

  11. Gabriell Anatra Gabriell Anatra September 15, 2010

    Don’t forget the Aetheric Illumination Orchestra

  12. MichaelD Mannonen MichaelD Mannonen September 18, 2010

    Plumbum Dirigible?

     

    “The Whom” and their Opera “Thomas”.

     

    “Osculate” with “(I want to) Polka all Evening (and Celebrate every day)”

    I heard the Rotating Cobblestones will be performing their hit single, “Vertical Displacement Jackson’s Sudden Flare.”

    Does anyone remember the song?  It was on the Apprehensiveness and Aversion in A Desert Town in Nevada soundtrack.

    What? No Plasmacoilmatics? 

  15. Jedburgh30 Dagger Jedburgh30 Dagger January 23, 2012

    I’m still rather partial to the Italian group Leonardo diSkinardo’s “Uccello libero”.

  16. Jedburgh30 Dagger Jedburgh30 Dagger January 23, 2012

    or perhaps Zed Zed Tophat’s “Flash dressed gentlemen”

  17. Junie Ginsburg Junie Ginsburg January 23, 2012

    I would like to know how Death Polka fits into all of this.

    Unit #6 used to play accordion with Rancid Clockwork and The Widget Band.

    They were quite big in the underground steam bars, but then Rancid ran off with the money and that was that.
