I just interviewed Brian King of Vancouver’s post-nothing, great-everything Japandroids.

The trend of naming bands with puns on “Japan” — I’ve got a tab opened to Japancakes MySpace page and a Japanther 7″ on my record player — was obviously discussed.

I asked him if there was another one he wished they had used. He couldn’t think of another one. Neither could I…

Until just now.


Beat that.

(Blast! Somebody beat me to it! By just a week! — kudos on Japantsuit. Oooh.. that’s giving me a lot more: Japandora’s Box, Japanda, Japanda Bear, Japanhandling, Japantheon, Japeterpan…)
