Over lunch today one of my coworkers was discussing how she wanted to seriously cut back on her meat intake. She lives alone with a couple of dogs and mentioned that in the future she only planned on eating meat when out with friends... Essentially becoming a "social carnivore" (a term she coined). I mentioned that would be a great name for a band. Then another co-worker mentioned Meat Loaf would be the perfect lead singer for such a group. We even went so far as to start designing album covers (featuring wolves drinking Martinis, smoking cigarettes, and generally being sociable creatures). T-Bone Walker was also mentioned as a possible group member.
I was more of the idea that the band members take stage names reminiscent of various different cuts of meat:
Chuck - Bass Player
Del Monico - Drummer
Phil A. Mignon - Lead Vocals/guitar
Porter Howse - Keyboards
Another idea that was presented was that all the band members would wear bibs at their live shows.
But on the flipside, I got to thinking this afternoon, the opposite of the Social Carnivores would be the Solitary Vegans-- yet another fun and interesting band name!
