Episode 216 / Bands Named After Food


Recently we’ve presented shows where each song has a food item in the title, (case in point, https://www.mixcloud.com/CaptainManiac/episode-211-eat-it/), but what about bands or artists that are NAMED after food items, such as Cream, Vanilla Fudge, Red Hot Chili Peppers and of course Meat Puppets? So here we go with an entire show devoted to that criteria, with perhaps some obvious choices like Strawberry Alarm Clock or Chocolate Watch Band and the Electric Prunes, with some weird and wonderful forgotten-but-loved selections as well!
