Ingenious artist names

Offshot of the ingenious album names thread, which artists do you think have chosen a great pseudonym for themselves? Include ambient/psybient names too if you want to.

 

 

 

 

Off the top of my head:

 

Eat Static - Really cool name for an artist imo.

 

Hallucinogen - Obviously he made a great choice here + it fits psytrance.

 

 

Psykovsky - No comments necessary. :)

 

Infected Mushroom - Even if you don't prefer their music, you have to agree that's one awesome name for a band. Very catchy too.

 

Vibrasphere - Vibrating atmosphere? I don't know, but it sounds cool!

 

 

 

 

Your turn!

It gets even better in the collaborations.

 

IM + Domestic = Domestic Mushroom ...ok

IM + Space Cat = Cat on Mushroom ...ok

IM + Jörg Kessler = Jörg on Mushroom ...err, what?

IM + Psysex = Sex on Mushroom ...what?

 

Green Nuns is probably my all time favourite, though.

For once I can agree against IM. There nothing ingenious about their name whatsoever. How is a mushroom infected? What does it mean? When I tell friends that I like a band called "Infected Mushroom" I always feel ashamed, since the name implies shiet! hehe

Orichalcum - it's simply strange and mesmerizing

 

Did you ever look up what it means? Even stranger :)

 

I get a kick out of the sheer number of psytrance artist names that are some made up of nonsensical rhyming words or singsong couplets; Hux Flux, Koxbox, Ubar Tmar, Sattel Battle, Onkel Dunkel, Wizack Twizack, Para Halu, Yab Yum, and so on. Not really ingenious necessarily but it sort of goes with the spirit of the music in some way I can't exactly describe.

 

Encephalopaticys comes to mind as a particularly clever (and weird) artist name.
