AP tells of Kristin Hersh's new band, which took the now-unfortunate name 50 Foot Wave. In case you were wondering, it has nothing to do with tsunamis and they distributed a promo disc a week before the Indian Ocean disaster.
For unfortunate band names, the only one I can think of worse than that is I Am the World Trade Center. Yes, they existed before the attack, and decided they weren't going to let Osama decide their name. For better or worse.
