Dingus Khan Support Mistley Swans
When I was younger, the quality of a band was directly proportionate to the quality of its name. If a band had a bad name, it was a safe bet it was a bad band (see: Limp Bizkit, Insane Clown Posse).

And, to a large extent, also prevented his ever going high gloss.

Over time, J Church developed a familiar, conversational quality. Fans could chart the progress of Lance's ideas, as

The Babies Our House on the Hill
Okay, Our House On The Hill does not have a song to rival 2010's "Meet Me in the City." But Our House On The Hill is way more coherent pop than its eponymous predecessor. And while the words "side project" are inevitable, in 2012 I prefer The Babies to either of their more illustrious ancestors.
