My look at band names continue with place names. I’m fascinated with people with place names. So why not look at bands which are named after places. Of course on this list is the twice aforementioned Of Montreal. But there’s a lot of others. Some of the more interesting ones (at least in my opinion) include All Saints (named after a street in London), Over-the-Rhine (which is named after their neighborhood in Ohio) and Easterhouse (which is actually a suburb of Glasgow). It’s an easy and great way to get a band name. Another band that’s named after a place is Bush. Bush isn’t named after shrubbery or US Presidents, it’s named after Shepherd’s Bush, a place in London.
