Robotess Sherrie and I, will one day be in a filipino, literary themed, indie rock band called the Lumpiaists. Of course this is a nod to one of our favorite bands, The Decemberists. Here are a some of the tracks we are working on:
1. My Mother Was A Chinese
2. Leslie Anne Lopez
3. Here I Dreamt I Was a Registered Nurse
4. Halo! Halo!
5. Manila, I’m Yours
6. Spam for Mayra Gomez
7. The Gymnast High Above the Goldilocks
8. The Balikbayan and the Bride
10.Sixteen Military Wives
I guess if you’re neither filipino or a Decemberists fan, then the joke won’t go too far. I know at least Sherrie will get it. The Lumpiaists might not be the best band name in the world, but at least it’s a lot better than the ones found at The Canonical List of Weird Band Names. Believe it or not, the bands on this page are actually real bands. Here are some of my favorites:
A Cat Born In An Oven Isn’t a Cake
Accidental Goat Sodomy
Ancient Chinese Penis
3D House of Beef
…and if you need a name for your new band, there’s this website. If the Lumpiaists doesn’t work, “Punish Fuck,” is our backup band name. After we get the name nailed down, then we’ll actually learn how to play instruments.
