A Fir-Ju Well name change

After getting much attention here and elsewhere about a "break-up," it seems A Fir-Ju Well are still around. More or less, anyway. Someone called in to the Georgia Music Show on WRAS yesterday and said that A Fir-Ju Well had changed their name to Gringo Star. Looks like it's official.

Thoughts?

Maybe they're going for the overflow crowd from the Pete Best show at Smith's?

It's too cheeky for an established at. I think they should have gone for "The New Originals", or maybe "A Fuckin' Fair Jew Well"

Holy shit, I just noticed that they chose Gringo Star just before starting to tour England. That takes some fucking balls.

unless this is a joke, it doesn't really matter what any of us think... we will be subjected to untold numbers of pallets, televisions and whatnot informing us of gringo starr's upcoming shows, shan't we?

I dunno... if a band called Gringo Star sent me a promo to check out, I don't think it would exactly leap to the top of the pile. And I'm just an idiot blogger. Hard to imagine A&R, media, or venue folks being much more receptive.

perhaps all of you should start yer own bands and call it what the fuck you want. i find it hard to imagine a crowd of "idiot bloggers" know anything about a pile of shit in the road, let alone creating anything, other than a pile of shit that is.
