How we got the name “West 67”

Filed under: RAT-Tales ! — rat July 26, 2006 @ 5:01 pm

It’s not a long story, altho we spent a lot of time trying to come up with a good band name that would satisfy the agent.We were about to give up and choose something we all couldn’t agree on when RAT had to use the bathroom and then,,,, ,,,,,,,,it came to him.We practiced in the basement of my parents’ house (naturally)so everytime I would open the door and go outside to pee, the flourescent lights would shine outside and illuminate the road sign which read “WEST 67”. SO, that night while doing my business I decided, HEY, that’s it !!! I ran back inside (forgetting to zip my pants as I was quickly reminded by the bass players wife who was there) shouting out that I had IT ! I ran it by them and it was unaminously decided that would be our new name. The old one BTW was Southern Harvest Band which was unacceptable for a professional band.
