    There was a very (did I say very? I meant incredibly) short lived Boston band called Inside Out Burst.

    I also remember being told in the 80s about a band from somewhere in the midwest called Tupelo Chain Sex.

    And it is argueable whether it is a band's name or the name of a performance by VU & Andy Warhol but The Plastic Exploding Inevitable deserves some credit.

    I spent much of the 80s facetiously hoping for a tour featuring The The, Talk Talk and Mister Mister.
