Is your favourite artist dead? Are tickets prices too high? Go and see the tribute version. Pink Fraud, Fake That, Smells Like Nirvana (I think I made that last one up, but who knows).

But what about world music tribute bands? Has anybody heard of any? If not, let's at least give them a head start by suggesting what they should call themselves.

These ones may or may not have resulted from my mishearing them when they were new to me......

I always assumed Tabu Ley was as in the couscous dish, tabouleh, hence

TABOULEH & SENEOR ROGER O
and from that same neck of the woods...
MILLIE LABELLE

CHEQUE LOW has a certain whimsical appeal, as does IS A BAG A YOYO ?

I'm sure it is an apocryphal story but Thelonius was once allegedly referred to, by some dj I think, as THE LONLIEST MONK.
