    Hey there! technically im not a n00b, i have been a member for ages, but havnt bothered to post anything... boy did i miss out!

    anyway, the band im in has been through a few changes recently, we kicked out a member (from a 5 piece to a 4 piece) havnt played together in ages and think its time for a fresh start.

    we used to be called "Cast In Stone" but we dont really like that any more. We dont really have a style per se, but are influenced from anything from ska, to blues, to jazz, to funk, to rock to reggea to whatever!

    So, the names to choose from are:
    Leaf
    Stickmen
    Anon
    Six Pence Millie
    Cast In Stone

    i say anon. What you could be in until you get a new name is call yourself the artists/band formally known as cast in stone.

    i say stickmen. i think it's the easiest to remember. it brings a half a grin to my face yet it can mean lots of things.
    _______________________________

    leaf seems way too dull and would turn up 80,000 pages in a websearch.

    anon sounds like something for the families of addicted people.

    six pence mille sounds like i don't know what it means and that you're some kinda foreign band (to me that is).

    cast in stone sounds hard, cold, stuck, and close minded.

    all just my opinion of course.
     
  4. I say Stickman as well...

    Agree on all counts. Also while I don't know whether or not they're close minded Cast in Stone is taken by (surprise) a hardcore band.

    I voted for Six Pence Millie. I think that's the most original name. The name Leaf just sucks. I'm sure Stickmen is taken and I don't like it very much anyways. Anon is pretty cool. It's my second choice, although it's the name of a snowboard goggles brand or soemthing of the sort.
     
  7. Cast In Stone sound like some kind of christian hard rock band. don't know why-just does to me. anyways how about Stickleaf? it makes no sense whatsoever, but just rolls of my tongue.

  9. agreed with the first point-sounds christian to me, and no I am not sure why either. Stickleaf is a cool idea. The way I see it, the weirdier(sp?) the better because it will stand out in peoples minds. When they hear it for the first time, it will stay there.
