Fictional performers whose t-shirt you would like to own

Mine:

Aldous Snow and Infinite Sorrow (Forgetting Sarah Marshall)
The Honey Bees (Gilligan's Island)
The Standell's (The Munsters)
Serena (Bewitched)

There's probably more but that's all I can think of at the moment.

Not to mention they have at least three if not four albums.

VERY good albums I should say.

There's no reason we couldn't make t-shirts or gig posters for these bands... or get someone more versed in screenprinting to do it for us.

Mine would be for Drimble Wedge and the Vegetation.

Peter Cook's character in the original 'Bedazzled' ('67). Dudley Moore wishes himself into a flamboyant, wild rock star to
get the girl. Peter Cook outdoes him with weaponized ennui... "I don't want you... You fill me with inertia."

Found the clip!

I don't think the Standells were "fictional".

Heee! How can I have never seen that episode!? That is great, including 99's dancing.
Also, I did not know The Standell's were a real band!
Also, also, Aldous Snow's band is Infant Sorrow. No idea why I typed "infinite"

The Standell's were from LA. None of the band members had ever visited Boston when they recorded "Dirty Water".

When I was a teenager in Green Bay in the late 1970s, "Nazgūl" was, in fact, the name of a local jazz-fusion band (now long since defunct, I think). As far as I was able to figure out, they didn't play any music inspired by Tolkien; they just liked the name.

Camel Lips (from the John Waters film Serial Mom - played by L7)

The Juicy Fruits
The Beach Bums
The Undead
All from Phantom of the Paradise (and all the same band - their producer kept chasing trends and changing their style)
And of course, Beef, from the same movie. I have seen someone in a "Death Records" shirt at a con, but I don't know if it was bootleg or licensed.

Just to add Disaster Area would be a good one too

"Many worlds have now banned their act altogether, sometimes for artistic reasons, but most commonly because the band's public address system contravenes local strategic arms limitations treaties."
