Who's your favourite fictional band?

Recommended Posts

I mean, yeah, Spinal Tap obviously, followed by Strange Fruit and Dogs in Space but...
 
I was talking about books (because obviously I have an ulterior motive here) when I wrote this list of books with bands in that I like (and didn't write myself)
 
 
Any others I forgot?
 
(The correct answer is that The Band With Rocks In are the best fictional band btw)

Two many to choose from but a stand out for me is The Carrie Nations from Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

Johnny Staccato. A jazz pianist come detective played by John Cassavetes with music by Elmer Bernstein. Great late night TV!

Surely Bad News & Spinal Tap count as real bands? I've seen at least one of them live, and it sounded like they played their own instruments & everything!

P.S. The Band With Rocks In gets a vote from me.

Darn it..! The Sequel seems to be Kindle Only for the moment, at least on Amazon. Is there a way to pre-order a hard copy (y'know; paper'n'all...) for the Old Folks among us..? Please say 'Yes'; cash waiting ...

Amazon don't allow pre-orders on paperbacks Douglas (in case people forget they set them up and the automated system sends out a paperback of notes that say WRITE A BOOK HERE BY FEB 14TH).

Rest assured I will be badgering in here again when it comes out (PB might be up a couple of days early anyway to avoid launch day sag from Amazon).

I won't let you miss it.

Not sure if ever in print, but if so Strange Fruit from Still Crazy, which on film was Bill Nighy, Timothy Spall, Jimmy Nail, Stephen Rea, being a 70s rock band who reformed for a tour/festival. Absolute classic.
