Awesome Band Name and Photo: Turds of Misery
Don't you wish you had thought of this one? And yes, it was a real band, with a real member named Bagpipes McDonald. Weather Station 1 informs us:
Turds of Misery played only six shows during their short existence. Based in a small town on the outskirts of Winnipeg, Manitoba, the three-piece act quickly abandoned their first concept -- an Alan Parson Project cover band -- to focus on original tunes. The band included (from left) bassist Dave, drummer Gord, and guitarist Bagpipes McDonald. One of their songs, I Seen You At The Corner Store, received some airplay on the local AM station in 1980. After the band split up, Dave returned to his career as a high school geography teacher, while Gord went to prison for stealing golf balls from the forest. Bagpipes, meanwhile, became the lead guitarist in the current touring version of Foreigner.
