Musical Pseudonyms

I like to pretend sometimes that I could be any sort of musician, at any point in time, in any genre, from this:

He sort of looks like Robert Duvall, right?

to this:


With each genre, one of the more important things I would have to consider would be my stage name. According to this random generator, my names would be Max Cage or Ricky Ivory, both of which are just fannnnntastic. However, I’ve spent years fantasizing about this, so here’s what I’ve come up with so far, including both individuals and bands:

British Blues:

  1. Scorpion Gulch
  2. Augustus Bourne
  3. Plum Widget (Band)

Family-Style 70’s Funk Collective:

  1. Wonderfunk Lovejoy
  2. Kid Thunderfunk
  3. Sammy “‘Sam” Samson


  1. Dario Delacroix


  1. Rumpus Room
  2. Speaker Eater

Death Metal:

  1. Lawrence of a Rabies (Band)
  1. Puke Ellington (Band)
Quiet, Introspective, Indie group who also love to photograph things with old cameras:
  1. The Leaflets (Band)
  2. Our Dreams, Their Stars (Band)
  3. We Three (Band)
  4. This, the Destination (Band)
Speakeasy Jazz Outfit:
