Coolest Name in Rock 'n' Roll

Clem Snide, the alt-country indie prog rockers from Nashville via New York, have been around for a long time now - released their first record in 1991. How is it that more people aren't aware of them merely illustrates that great talents often go unappreciated in their time.

Clem Snide is an ever-rotating roster of musicians backing up acclaimed singer-songwriter Eef Barzelay, possessor of one of the coolest names I have ever heard. Eef Barzeley! How can you not love someone with a name like that! And Clem Snide is a character in William Burroughs' Naked Lunch. It's like a double-dose of art-geek hipness.

Here's Eef and Clem Snide with "Girls Don't Care.":
