Ivem always liked the names that have some kind of hidden message, clever play on words or are simply funny:

 

GNOTR

Shaolin Wooden Men

Rip Van Hippie

ZeroToNine

MFG (Messge from god)

MandalVandalz

Battle of the Future Buddhas

ManMadeMan

Kindanza (Comes from the totally wierd futuristic Russian film Kinzaza)

OOOD (Out Of Our Depths)

Panayota (I don't like their music, but both my Mother and my fiancee are called Panayiota)

Ozric tentacles

Hallucinogenic Horses

 

I generally like people that don't take themselves very seriously!

 

Edit: Psycko Disco (how could I forget)

They both are "Kindzadza".

 

Btw, the Kin-dza-dza film was not just a "weird futuristic movie", it had and sill has enormously huge cultural impact on Russian people. Also the aesthetic of this movie is strangely similar to the overall feel of the Kindzadza music, so this is a really clever name choice.

The Future Sound of London

Beaumont Hannant

Cell

Tangerine Dream

Children of Paradise

 

With some groups I have such strong associations with the artist name and the music they make that I find it hard to judge the name on its merit alone.

Kokobloko - have no idea what they are producing, but the name sounds dope.

Analog Pussy (did anyone ever see a digital one?)

Mandalavandalz (the name itself sounds very musical, like a small song - btw their Kaunista was the first psy track I've ever heard, one of my exes used to sing along it as we were doing things, very romantic memories)

Skazi (the music is crap but the name has certain aesthetics over it, I remember these floppies)

 

While we are at it, any idea what "eat static" may mean?

I'm not sure but I think it comes from a quote in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, Khan says "let them eat static" meaning block communications. I've also heard this sampled in one of the tracks on Prepare Your Spirit.

Yep. The track is (unsurprisingly) named "Eat Static" :)

It would be "kokoburoko" then, the Japanese can't into "L" ;)

The Japanese often can pronounce L and R but struggle distinguishing between the two and so use them randomly. Leary? Yes really! Same with v/b and soft a/u meaning the most confusing words are rubbish and lavish. They've got no chance.
