the album was pressed weeks before that
to pick a different name in the first place.
Were they expecting no gun-related incidents to occur at any point in the foreseeable future after forming?
And it probably didn't occur to them at the time, what with them being nice boys from Oxford and all that. They even say that in the article.
...'we want to distance ourselves from a band name which we are now uncomfortable with'...
Not sure TTNG is going to help... aren't people just going to ask what the initials stand for all the time?
it's usually a sign of them going rapidly downhill.
I think they probably wanted to distance themselves from that also.
did this too. :')
What did they change their name to?!
Had to go and listen to them now.
to 'Massive' cos of the Gulf War or something?
Foals changed their name to Pudding, Etc. and then Band of Horses committed harakiri.
its not like its the first shooting
oh, TTNG, what does that stand for?
etc ad infinitum
TEE TEE EN GEE!
just like the morning bender cunts, they drew attention to it for no reason.
Would you? I mean, it doesn't have that connotation in Britain, as they said, but I imagine it's different in the U.S.
Teenage Tutant Ninja Gurtles.
Although I suppose changing to their initials isn't so bad.
Fearless Iranians From Hell never did this?
and now they're everywhere again
have they just reformed or been on the quiet until the new record was ready?
