these guys used to be called Pivot, but some other band called Pivot tried to sue them, so now they are called PVT and this new tune is out on Warp Records. I like it, it’s y’know. Pan Sonic had the same problem with names when they were called Panasonic. A little known electronics manufacturer got all “say what?” and forced them to cease and desist from using the name, so they became Pan Sonic. Something similar happened to the Irish band Skid Row (starring everyone’s favourite housewife, Brush Shiels) whose guitarist, the great Gary Moore, sold their name to Sebastian Bach (no relation) so he could sing songs about being in gangs and having Heather Locklear’s hair. I think he had Heather Locklear too. The same happened to novelty dog punk rock act, Motley Crue, who received four thousand bags of Markies from Vince Neil, then a dentist. The human Motley Crue went on to fame and fortune but the Labrador, the Portuguese Water dog and the Australian Sheepdog gorged on the Markies and died, because dogs don’t know when to stop. A Kerry Blue on bass and a axe-wielding Pug still tour the clubs of East LA under the name Muttley Crew and released their fifth album called raunchily “Dogs don’t know when to stop” seven years ago. I mean, last year.

  1. There once was an American band called Blink. But Dublish band Blink had the name first – there was a bit of a legal argument which resulted in the American punkers running nekked down the street, ripping off The Backdoor Boys, and changing their name to Blink 182. I like the Dublish band Blink. Very Dublish. Map Of The Universe? Schtuff.
