THE TITLE FOR THE TITLE

Posted in by CIVIL CIVIC | Edit
Every human being has, in their lifetime, come up with at least one AWESOME BAND NAME.  Seriously, you've done it, even if you didn't realise or don't remember.

Well now it's time to put your dopey, killer band-name skillz to the ultimate test and NAME OUR NEXT SINGLE.


Yeah, you heard me. Get that bong fired up (or use technology) and blurt out some ridiculous/evocative/atmospheric word or phrase in the English language. Our distinguished panel (Aaron, Ben and The Box) will hand down their judgement and then it's LOCKED!

That's the name of our next SMASH HIT!*  Out on limited edition 7" on Too Pure in December.

The winner, apart from concrete proof of their own RADNESS, will receive a signed copy of the 7" and a life sized oil-on-canvas of AARON FIGHTING A VICIOUS PACK OF STRAY DOGS!**

Entries close next Monday 11th October.

You have one week, multiple entries encouraged!!!

email your names to mail@civilcivic.com with 'title comp' as the subject.

*subject to record sales.
**this is a bare faced lie. You will get a 7" though, and eternal glory and bragging rights.

    You should use a title that is related to some on-going topic of national interest. That way, your song will come up when the guys at Channel 4 and BBC search keywords related to their documentaries and news analysis programs, and airplay will go through the roof. Try something like "Are we getting value for money with our health service?" and within two weeks thousands of viewers will be tapping their feet while listening about the mortality rate as a function of GDP across OECD countries.

    That is very cunning Brendan.
    Maybe we should call it "Get rich quick scheme that makes you thin and quick witted"

    Agree we need to hear at least a sneak peek first.
    You know I'll buy it even if it's 4 minutes of silence.
    Probably shouldn't tell you that, as that's just what you'll do. And I will of course be compelled to fork out for it. DAM YOUR EVIL CUNNING!!!!
    Ahem. Sorry. Noisy voices tonight. =\

    Came here to hear the track, so that I can pick a title from my plumptious list of cool-titles-for-songs-I-haven't-gotten-around-to-writing-yet. C'mon, a snippet a least.
