Imaginary Tribute Bands

Post by Murray » Fri Apr 26, 2013 13:24

Husky Dude - a bloke with a sore throat covering songs by Messers Mould and Hart. Possibly performing as Busker Dude when his throat is better.

Help Stamp Out Help Stamp Out Loneliness
- a bunch of musicians psychopathically dedicated to destroying HSOL's reputation by playing their songs really badly. An anti-tribute band, clearly.

The Staples - A Pastels tribute band who play anagramised songs such as 'Hay, Be Bony', 'Supreme Sir', 'Basic Warble' and 'Maltier Loins'.

Tristram of a Down - middle-class busker playing rock and metal covers.

Help me, I'm bored.

If you could play an instrument or sing (maybe you already can, in which case well done) and had to start a tribute band, which band would you choose and what would you be called?

Abbatoir - a Black Metal tribute to ABBA. Perhaps the most Scandinavian band of all time?

Enslavement - the band that pays tribute to the three most vital recording artists of all time in one glorious gig experience - Enya, Slade and Pavement.

archie bell and sebastian
belle and sebastian tribute band playing archie bell and the drells super funky 'tighten up' in an increasingly flatulent, tedious, pointless and 'will this do?' fashion therefore archly reflecting the recorded output of the band they still claim to love

Haiku Shampoo - Bored by the beautiful melodies, a pair of mouthy young Londoners decide what would really liven up those bleepy accordion songs is them singing faux-rebellious lyrics over the top.

Alice Blooper - a loving tribute to the ever-incredible shock-rocker, as played by gormless stooges who can't get through a whole song without messing up their lines or falling off ladders

Beaming Trees - an affectionate tribute to Mark Lanegan and the brothers Connor, with all the chords changed to major keys and massive grins permanently etched on the faces of the band

Mel C/DC - a warm-hearted tribute to the legendary aussie hellraisers, in which... ah, you can see where i'm going with this

my gary valentine
the less successful brother of 'king of queens' kevin james ('paul blart; mall cop') attempts his stand up routine while being drowned out by a sonic cathedral of sound as wave upon wave of miasmic feedback crashes again and again into your skull with fair to middling comic results

disturbing visuals are projected behind valentine and the band from his 'the dog who saved...' film series

the highlight of every show is the eighteen minute holocaust section where valentine attempts his 'why do they bother putting wheels on luggage? did you ever try to pull your luggage through the airport?' routine while being bludgeoned by the bands guitars, fists, hammers, car jacks, hired hoodlums, etc

simon reynolds has said some dead fancy things about them
