Radriano and I are stepping out as a sea music duo, having been rehearsing weekly for the better part of a year. Now we're looking at a stage name. So far we've put our fogged heads together and came up with....

Floating Seamen
The Whaleboners
After Berth
The Monkey Nuts
The Windbreakers
The Doldrums
The Heaving Rowboat
Slimy Joe and the Squarehead Man
Aw, Frigate!
Muttering Tides
Schooner Or Later
Two Sheets To The Wind
The Manspikes
The Drowning Sailors
The Afore Players
Broad Reach
Seamen Gobs
Flotsam and Jetsam
The Seafaring Strangers
The Jolly Pumpers
Hard On The Wind
Draggin' Anchor
Tainted Seamen


Alright, 'Catters, any other ideas? (Can't wait til what Spaw might come up with).

"Schooner Or Later" must have come from Radriano, the compulsive punster. I have to admit I like it - but I think maybe I should feel personally insulted by "Slimy Joe."
Whatever the case, it certainly is a pleasure to hear the two of you sing together.

Maybe, Mudcat's rejecting my suggested band names:

What a great list and a great challenge!

"Flotsam and Jetsam" has always been one of my favorites.

I would steer away from any name that includes "sheet" or "seamen," avoiding nervous giggles.

Then, let's see, what other names surface or sink:

The Sea Slugs (nautical punk band)

The Afterguard (those who serve on the poop deck)

Roll & Go (sorry, that one's taken)

The Dog Watch ("This chanty group should be curtailed!")

Catspaw (Spaw should like this one but it really means a breath of fresh breeze on a calm day)

The Bilge Brothers (worst one yet!)

Shanghaied (sorry, already taken by folks in Portland-West)

Bucho Mates (another pair of bruisers to be paired with their female counterparts "Bosum Buddies")

Let's not hurry this process. We're just getting warmed up. Maybe we'll even get a song out of it.

Cheerily,
Charley Nobles and the Ignobles

Good for you guys!

Sorry, Brass Monkey(s) and Dogwatch are taken (although, Peter, you could always name your band "Dog Star" so the three Bay Area nautical bands would be Dogwatch, Starboard Watch and Dog Star -- that has a certain appeal to my twisted mind).

But seriously, folks...

Heart of Oak
Stout-Hearted Men
Red Right Returning
The Sailors' Rest
Ketch as Ketch Can
Hullaballoo Belay
The Bosun's Whistle
The Duck Jibers
Slumgulleon
The Downwinders
Master and Commander
Compass Rose
Kelpenhorn
Scurvy Crew
The Poxy Doxies (but you'd need gender changes)
The Ship's Biscuit Occasional Orchestra


...I could do this all day, But I'll spare you. Have fun -- hope to be invited to the bandwarming!

Flotsam and Jetsam were taken by a punk group years ago,

but "Keelhaulers" sounds promising. "Sea Slugs" or maybe

the more scientific version "Nudibranchs". Another possible

choice "Sea Stones" was a Grateful Dead spin-off record,

but the name may still be available for a musical group. More:

Cannery Row

All Washed Up

Drift Would

Land Lubbers

Star Pfisch

"I'll ask Tad" is a pretty good name, if I say so myself. I made a few suggestions to Chanteyranger the other day, some too rude for family viewing. Others that come to mind:

Handspike Hash
Belaying Pin Soup (suitable for those fans of Downeasters)
Pierhead Jump (maybe better as a song name)
Marlinspike Men
The Topmen
The Focsle Freaks
Bully and Bucko
Poor Ole Horse

On a whim I just went to Altavista's English-to-Italian translator, which translated "the Leghorn foghorn" to "La sirena della Livorno."

Oh, I like "Oosiks". Especially if you do a sesh up at Specs in N. Beach, where they have one (or used to), behind the bar, for clubbing patrons who aren't drinking. By the way, how about "Clubbing with Seals"? (You get the Jack London/Sea Wolf thing there).

"Bay City Rovers" might sound a bit to much like "Bay City Rollers". Chanteyranger may have to keep reminding people its not a tribute band.

"The Flakes" would certainly be appropriate, but I'm afraid most people wouldn't get the nautical connection...

"Bilge Brothers" works well.

I can hardly wait to see WHERE you're going to be getting gigs with names like that.

Still like "Chantey-Ano" but then there's:

"Full & By" (steering as close to the wind as possible)

"The Barbary Coasters" (should also go well at Specs)

"Shanghai-Lows" (sounds like an early acapella rock & roll group)

"Deep Six" but you'll need to add some members

Too bad there's already been a "Donkey's Breakfast" (WA) although the name may be retired.

Now I've been saving this one for a really special nautical group, harvested from the Patrick O'Brian sea novel series:

"Kicking up Bob's-A-Dying" (what the sailors are likely to do after going ashore in Sailortown)

May work better for a nautical dance band. Oddly enough I can find no reference for this phrase in my web searches, other than it's frequent use in O'Brian's novels. I suspect it may be the colorful name of a traditional country dance tune that caught his attention while he was doing his background research.

You certainly have enough to go on men so I won't even offer a suggestion.

Wishing you all the best with the endeavor,

"From" in the sense of "used to be with," Chanteyranger -- I am hanging out my chanteybear shingle soon and need to set the record straight!

You *are* going to let us know when you make your name selection, yes?

Sorry! I thought you were already "self-outed." I need to take my own advice and only use whatever Mudcat moniker the posters use. At least your last name won't be revealed. It would be great to see you up this way.

We'll be at one of the SF Folk Music Club hoot nights, on March 13, then South to Santa Barbara for a concert at the Karpeles Museum on Sunday, March 21.

Chantyranger and Radriano-

Could you give us a clue at this point what your favorite 10 choices are? And when do we vote?

Cheerily,

Ahem! I think we will be perfectly capable of choosing a name for ourselves. This whole process started out as a joke at the SFFMC New Year's Camp. I've enjoyed the chuckles and must admit that some of the questionable band names came from my own demented sense of humor.

In fact, chanteyranger and I have decided on a contest. Whoever can reach the top mast yard first gets to choose our name. But please, nobody say anything about the hog grease, okay?

Radriano-

Nice to have you check in on this thread. I know you're busy at work. Wish you had a computer at home so you could join in the fun more.

I'm sure that whatever name you and Chanteyranger come up with will be fine.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Please tell me that you're forming a band as well! "Blue Peter and Salty Dick" indeed. Next you'll be holding competitions in "peter pulling."

"Blue Peter and Salty Dick." Now THAT'S the kind of sick mind we're looking for! I like it. Radriano and I have decided to change our band name every fifteen minutes at each gig. How can we choose just one name from these, Although Ebbie, Jerry, Pianoman, and various other catters have got some (over the) top winners.

CR-

How about just "Port & Starboard"? You could be dressed in red and Radriano in green, or the other way around. And at pub sessions you could light up at appropriate intervals. Of course you'd have to remember which side was which, and whether your brow was the bow or your stern...BG
