This is a link to a column I wrote for work. In a rambling, semi-coherent way it explains my theory that if a band is named after a place, the population of that place affects a band’s quality. As population increases, the band’s quality decreases.
Although the premise is spoiled, it’s still a sort of funny column and sort of worth reading. I provide several examples, ignore a lot of counterexamples and relied solely on Google for population figures.
Obviously, it’s a modern masterpiece.
