The Ongoing History of New Music Encore Presentation: If That’s Your REAL Name…

Every once in a while you’ll run across an author who releases a novel under a different name. Stephen King comes to mind with this Richard Bachman novels. Bands have been known to do something similar. It’s not that common, but it does happen.

For example, do you know the real identity behind The Nappies, Dukes of Stratosphear, Foxboro Hot Tubs and 1000 Homo DJs? And then there’s the goofiness that is The Network. Who are they trying to fool? On this week’s show, we’ll get to the truth behind these fake identities.
