It's not the longest name ever but it is long. And there's nothing phonetically/textually that holds it together.

And I think the word "experiment" has been in too many band names.

And it's a joke/reference name. I mean is this for a terrible, local cover band? A fake band in a po-mo novel? A brief refence in a fast-paced cut-heavy hipster movie?

I'm not musically inclined, but if I had a band, we would be "The Lumpy Testicles" or "Butt-sweat and Tears"

'Password Protected Crotch' is a pretty kickass band name

I'm still saying SHOW CANCELLED is the greatest band name ever.
Imagine seeing it on a billboard and everyone lined up around the corner.

As long as your name does not have a day, month, or season in its name. And is not something The Mars Volta/Tool would use for a song name (things containing words like experiment, apparatus, or other scientific terms, or latin things). Then you should have a good band name.

Or, you could go the other way and just have an acronym - TBA. This way during festivals/incomplete lineups/venues still scheduling events, you could be or play at all of them.

TBA could stand for something like "The Bastard Alias" or "The Broken Anus". :-)

I was once in a band that briefly called ourselves "Bulbous Lobe and The Helen Reddy Void," so I'm in no position to comment on the lameness of "the al jolson skin cancer experiment..."

Will you be posting it when you're done. Or putting the songs on MySpace or somesuch. I wanna hear.

If there has ever been a better band name than Botched Turducken posted on this board, I haven't seen it. Though whomever said "Botched Turducken" initially might want to claim some sort of royalties.

There should be a band that plays all cover songs from splattercore "B" films and cheesy 1970s porn films.
