I've been listening to the Who in the car lately. Early stuff, not the "rock opera" material.
I've been threatening to start a garage band for ages but I think the time is now right. A bunch of middle-aged men, wearing Ivy clothes, making a lot of noise.
We'll call it The Brooks Brothers.
And when we get the inevitable cease-and-desist letter, we'll change it to The William F. Buckley Experience.
Some of Buckley's family still live in Sharon, Conn., one of the towns I cover. So they may object too, depending on how bad we are.
So I need some other ideas, just in case.
The Whale Pants?
Upp Tite and the Buttondown Collars?
My Dinner Jacket?
Hit it, gentlemen.

Whatever happened to our very own The Hook Vents?

For some odd reason "Victor and the Lemleys" just came to mind.
Of course, the real money is in managing bands.
To that end, how about a cross-over Trad/Ivy/Preppy all girl group of dubious ability - but well endowed with a variety of raw talents - "The Buff Muffies (tm)"?
Right, I'll get my (duffle) coat...

Well "The Gants" were a mid-60s garage band out of Greenwood, Mississippi that almost hit the big time and who still get a bit of airplay in the South.
So shamelessly aping, how about "Talbott-Gitman" or "Gitman-Talbott"?
Either way it does sound a bit prog rock-ish though...
