    On a visit to IKEA the other day I noticed the name of one of their designers, Lotta Kuhlhoorn. I couldn't help but smile.
    Any readers of 'Private Eye' magazine will be familiar with their madeup names correspondance section.
    I was wondering if anyone had any other band-related names they might like to share?:)

    I was maybe thinking more in terms of made-up names

    Barry Tone is the obvious one that comes to mind:-?

    We the undersigned are familiar with Private Eye's recent correspondence on made-up names and wish to state unequivocally that we think it puerile and idiotic. We hope that nobody in the world of brass will think of wasting the valuable web space of this esteemed forum to do something similar.

    Yours sincerely

    Might go for a curry - a lon ghee ton with my friends Bess Twud and Matt Lock. Dont think Carl Tonn will be able to make it though.

    I noticed that this thread began slowly but my friend points out that the pace has quickened a bit now.

    Why should this thread be restricted to band-related brass? We think it should include other brass instruments.

    Whenever I read a silly thread like this one I take a deep breath and count to four.

    As Easter is now upon us, we could do with a suitably religious input.
