A manufactured image

Fictional music groups: How many can you name? I probably would have managed a dozen or so off the top of my head... but man, there are lots!

Drimble Wedge and the Vegetations

Ellen Aim And The Attackers

Some notables then (ie. ones I like): Drimble Wedge And The Vegetations | Max Frost And The Troopers | The Banana Splits | The Archies | The Carrie Nations | Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kids | Little Ladies | The Rutles | Ellen Aim And The Attackers | Ape Sex / La Llorona / Missiles Of October | Glam Damage | Soggy Bottom Boys

Ape Sex

Some of them sound like this:

Drimble Wedge and the Vegetations | Bedazzled
Max Frost and the Troopers | Shape of Things to Come
The Archies | Jingle Jangle
The Carrie Nations | In The Long Run
Ellen Aim and the Attackers | Tonight Is What It Means To Be Young
Glam Damage | Scorched Out For Love (Dubgeist Remix)

Max Frost And The Troopers

Little Ladies

Special prize (not really) for telling me where the title of this post is from.

does no one remember terminal crash fear - invented by the melody maker, around the time of the Jesus & mary chain riots

Nope, can't say that I do, probably due to the fact that I mostly read the NME back then. But that reminds me; due to lack of decent Norwegian groups at the time, I used to invent them for the fanzine I wrote. They were great, all of them :-)
(Years later I was approached by someone doing a book on Norwegian rock, wanting to know if I could help put him in contact with one of them...)
