I know this is trite, but I noticed that a band with some recent release database feedings was called LaVey. This irritates me.
This is obviously a reference to Anton LaVey, and to me it just seems kind of cheap, considering that he made a lot of music and is often referred to only by his last name.
If you want to use a person's name for your project, fuck it up or something. Or at the very least have some Irony or a sense of context.
I mean, it's obvious in conversation that Richard Rameriez is not releasing noise cdrs from prison.
But this LaVey thing just irks me because it kind of reeks of plagiarism.
Why not just have something like LaVey's Rotting Corpse, or Bald Aton or some shit? Fuck, I'd prefer The LaVey to just LaVey.
Anybody have an opinion on this longwinded rant?
