    REM - Up
    Peter Gabriel ... Up

    Tricky - Angels with dirty faces
    Sugarbabes ... Angels with dirty faces

    I can see how a song title could easily be duplicated, but why choose the same album name as a previous one?? (Greatest Hits being the obvious exception!). Bands themselves can't have the same name, imagine paying 50 quid to see "Oasis" who happen to be three blokes and a dog!! How many more of these are there??

    Could be worse, they could just take the next available number and letter like car registrations:eek:

    Can you imagine asking for the new WSARDEF 123A56578 by Kylie

    Anyway I thought Oasis were 3 blokes and a dog, the dog writes the music, right :rolleyes:

    I chose Oasis to make the "big band little band"comparison, not any slur on their music :blush: At least "up" is a common word, the sugarbabes one is plain silly. Saying that, the title probably suits them more than Tricky...

    Peter Gabriel's Up was actually named before R.E.M.'s. Michael Stipe offered to change it when he found out, but Gabriel said that it didn't matter to him. And yes, I know that his album is only just coming out, but it's been in production for a VERY long time.

    Peter Gabriel has a two letter album title fetish, so he's allowed:
    So
    Us
    Up

    Sew us up?? Do you think he is turning into a cushion?? :D

    PG also had a stack of albums with "no title", then decided to give names, a bit like orbital. Maybe titleless albums started to confuse the artist- "Oh dude I really like your album, the one before the one that had the green cover with a sunrise on it......" :rolleyes:

    Just to add to the two letter album titles, Gabriel's next album, mosty of which is already recorded and is due for release sometime in 2003 (or more likely 2013 on past performance) has already been titled.

    Here it comes...... I/O!!!!!

    I saw an advert on telly last night for an album by 'Aqualung'.

    Could they be fans of the mighty Jethro Tull?

    There's loads of bands named after a song. 'Gigolo Aunts' were named after a Syd Barrett song, for instance. Got any more?

    Ned's Atomic Dustbin is [and I only found this out last week!] named after a Goon Show.

    There's an album by Yes which is named after its catalogue number - Can't remember what it is now, something like 80512. Novel idea I suppose.
