Best Band Name: Full Toilet

We need more bands like Full Toilet. Screw the pastoral imagery of the current indie-folk zeitgeist, lose the unGoogleable ironic band names. Yes, if you do an image search for Don Sheets’ band, you know what’s going to happen. Yet that’s likely the point—the name’s in line with the band’s primordial punk sound. Imagine Butthole Surfers crossed with the Minutemen. This shit is intense, epic, sludgy. In an age of wishy-washy genres, one-size-fits-all folk, and PC lyrics, a song like “Keys, Wallet, Phone, Gun” speaks unapologetically for itself. That “Don Sheets” is an alias for one of Seattle’s veteran guitar heroes doesn’t hurt the effort, either.
