Conjunction Junction, Vol. 2

Posted in Uncategorized on May 28, 2008 by pulmyears

A few weeks back, I wrote about a game I like to play where I take at least two band or artist names, fuse them together, and then try and describe what the result would sound like (sort of like the music nerds version of Conan O’Brien’s If They Mated). You can see Volume one at the link here:

I invited you to send more to me via the comments section and that offer still stands,

Last time, Craig suggested a jam band theme:

Phishbone: you thought they had a heavy groove and then it was gone for awhile and then it came back

The Grateful Dead or Alive: Effeminate dance music for old hippies

Ratdog Star: Keaunu Reeves replaces Jerry Garcia

Wade suggested:

Neil Young Marble Giants: (nice pull out of YMG Wade!)

and Gang of Four Aces


Band of Joy Division – Early Robert Plant fills in for the late Ian Curtis to perform Mancunian-Black Country hybrid of blues alienation

Carly Simon & Gar-Funkadelic: Earnest singer songwriters get on the good foot with George Clinton.

James Last Poets: German easy listening versions of pre-rap Black power poetry slams (sung phonetically, of course, by a chorus of smile-voiced German singers.)

Afro Celt Sound System of A Down: Irish African fusion with anti-Bush political lyrics

Sugar Ray Stevens : hip hop tinged commercial “alt rock” novelty songs about hot button topics like Streaking.

And the big finish!

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings of Leon Russell: Retro Funk Soul with scrappy guitar rock, snarling vocals and boogie piano runs.

NOW, SEND ME YOUR OWN CONJUNCTION JUNCTIONS (click COMMENTS) and don’t forget to also describe what they would sound like!
