There aren’t many bands with name names, but new music from Django Django (“the D is silent”) and Belinda Carlisle of the Go Go’s is in the news.
Django Django has a stripped-down sound (check out the drum kit on the video below), and their eponymous first album was named to Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the best 50 albums of 2012.
Belinda Carlisle was the lead singer of the early-80’s hit machine the Go Go’s. The band had the beat everyone danced to in that era, and in the first single she’s released in the U.S. in over 15 years Belinda updates her dance sound and shows that her voice hasn’t lost anything in the last few decades
Likely the most popular name name band of all time is Duran Duran. Drawn from a character in the bizarre Jane Fonda sci-fi vehicle “Barbarella”, the band’s name was apparently inspired by the night club Barbarella in their hometown of Birmingham, England. After watching the Duran Duran video, feel free to send in a comment about your favorite name name band, or place an order for a wedding dress!
