Silly competition time.

A conversations about cover/tribute bands elsewhere has moved on to making names up for non-existent ones.
Here's some I thought of.

The Red Stripes (Jamaican garage punk duo)
Fear of Hysterectomy (The all girl Spear of Destiny tribute act)
The Newport Dolls (Glam folk band)
BJs-R-Us (Female Supersuckers tribute band)
Marc Nolan (T-Rex hits covered by The Nolans)
Big Cuntry ( X-Rated parodies of Big Country hits)
Sisters of Percy (Goth covers of Led Zeppelin)
Iced Tea (Upper class rap for garden parties)
Tom Waits for no man (A pensioners tribute that tours the nursing homes)
Ian Jury Duty and the Cellblock Heads (Ex cons rehabilitation scheme)
Master of Muppets (Educational metal for kids)
Give 'em enough Pope (Choirboys doing Clash songs)
Couldn't it be rice (Vegetarian Beach Boys cover band)
AsBo Diddley (Young offender doing the blues, but he has to be in by 9pm and can't leave the scheme he lives in)

Anyone else want to join in? Best one will get a prize.
