Presented by our friends at Trampoline.

Luckily Russell’s music is much better than his taste in band names! You can find out for yourself at their MySpace...

It’s not that bad a name surely!! Nice photos though Dylan, shame we didn’t get a chance to chat on Saturday. Thanks for taking them and hope you enjoyed the show. R

Haha! Well long as as you like it that’s the important thing! 🙂

Really enjoyed the show – shame we had to run out on you but had to get over to Cab Vol to catch Rob too. Catch you again soon.. Cheers!

I like the name. Though I’m interested in its origin? Given the themes of the songs, I’m sure the band name is more sinister than it sounds!

Great pics though Dylan. Even managed to make me look quite good in amongst the Kostulin family!! Actually, what i like most about the band is the lead singer and hist sisters bring the glamour and style (though not French vogue ;o) and the drummer, bassist and piano player look like scruffs!

It just gives the band a Cosmopolitan feel, Euan.

I’m sure the band name is more sinister than it sounds!

It’ll probably turn out to be something deep and meaningful that Russell really cares about, and I’ve just made a tit of myself and he’ll never speak to me again!

No no. He plays pop tunes about self harm and stalking! The name is probably about something equally as dark. Turnip perhaps being code for incest? Team Incest not having quite the same harmless overtones….

But it’s a much better band name!!

Team Incest… and you say I have a dark side.

The TT name is in no way sinister, it comes from my school days where there was an all-conquering skate-boarding gang called Team Turnip. I’ve always liked it, don’t know why.

What’s in a name anyhow? Much like the sleeping p*nis, “Team Turnip”‘s a grower.

Dylan, no worries heading off early, I’m pleased you came at all, and took photos to boot!

who did this skateboarding gang conquer Russell??? Like I said, I like the name – for a band, but for a skate boarding gang it’s awful!

Erm, not sure who or what was conquered – maybe some substances (actually one of them went mental through too many acid trips and ended up in a mental institute dribbling into his Dickensian beard, it was a sad sight indeed). They definitely conquered some birds, quite a few as I recall, and maybe some tricks were conquered… christ, I don’t know, they just ruled the school for a brief spell.

The name just hung around in my brain ether and presented itself when it was time to think of a name. And so it shall be.

I think we all know you should change the name of the band to ‘Sleeping Penis’.
