The Name Game                     

O.K. people... we've got a group, a sound and a song,
now what are we gonna call ourselves?


This is, in places, quite bizarre. Exactly why some of these names were chosen
is a mystery. Magic mushrooms obviously have a lot to answer for, but.....
ah well, that's pop
evolution for you.....

Everybody now knows them under names such as 'The BeeGees', 'The Beach Boys'
or 'The Beatles', but they have all performed under more obscure names
at some time earlier in their careers.


Who was... 'Jet Powers' ? Who started out as... 'The Spacemen' ??  
... or Tom and Jerry... ??!!!
Who thought that a really cool, catchy name
for a pop group would be...
wait for it (I love this one)... 'The Mars Bars' ??
No idea? Nor did I.... well read on and have a guess at a few more
of these obsolete aliases
...
