OK, The Gearjammers it is

Well, no one seems to "get" that I'm trying to make AndyT13 a recognizable brand (to use a marketing term) to drive people to www.AndyT13.com so they buy my records. And since everyone universally hates it in a band name, fuck it. The Gearjammers it is. The bass player suggested Raggedy Andy and The Gearjammers which amuses me no end but alas it's a trademarked name. And yes, there's a George Thorogood song about Gearjammers but no one owns the name as far as I can tell. It's a term used to refer to truckdrivers (like my father) who drive big rigs. 18 wheelers. Semi's. Sunday's recording session produced some good results which I hope to post here soon. Hope y'all had a fabulous labordaybor day. Peace.

Finally done with that name stuff... Maybe the 13 as thirteen could have sounds(!!) more as a brand name... but hey... not everyone can be a SeaRabbit!!! LOLOLOL...

Yeah, uhm, although I understand the marketing angle, T13 is just...meaningless to anyone who doesn't know the story. Which is anyone who hasn't spoken to you and asked you about it directly. Now, if you'd gotten hung up on, say, Andy69, *that* would make sense to people. I think that for something to have marketing appeal, it has to have something about it that people relate to. But who am I to talk? Zoely 4 Tiltings? Utterly meaningless to anyone who doesn't ask.
Love ya, hot stuff & love Gearjammers. Rock the f*ck on.

I wasn't around much this weekend, and I've proven I suck at band nameage. So, this name sounds fine to me. I'm just glad you have something, and something you want to boot. I like the link to your family. Good luck with the shows.
