New Banner on the convention centre

By 12 April 2005 5

A new banner on the convention centre doth herald – Grinspoon, Shihad, The Spazzies and …… someone else. Soon.

I wish I could afford babysitting.

I thought Shihad are now called Pacifier, or do they only use that name in the US?

I dunno, I guess they changed it back. yay for pushing back on the universal tide of Semantic Stupidity.

I heard shihad/pacifier interviewed on JJJ and was frankly amazed

basically they meant to call themselves “Jihad” but arsed it up on account of being thick.

Then after 9/11 they panicked and decided it was too dangerous to be called something that sounded like “Jihad”, on account of being cowards (in my opinion). Such is modern Rock’n'Roll.

(That’s what I got from the interview the next is my surmise)

Then they took a huge commerical hit and realised being called Shihad wasn’t such a problem and changed their name back (on account of god knows what)

Some good songs regardless.
