    Actually whats the convention for bands with punctuation marks at the end of their name? For example Detroit electro band Adult. is always spelt with a period at the end of their name. They are really insistent that its written exactly that way, except when it falls at the end of a sentence where there is only one full stop, never two. They're so adamant about that that it's even on the front page of their website! http://www.adultperiod.com/

    Not so much cynical marketing, but definitely an image thing. Adult. have a really specific image and aesthetic, but its all part of the bands appeal.

    re Filter, is it true that that song was actually inspired by a politician that was shot at a press conference and his words could be heard over the mic sayin "hey man nice shot" or am i a big eejit for believing urban folklore?
