Tagline…Your It!

March 2nd, 2012

For those of you who haven’t been following the process, we’ve been building a band together here on Figment News. While we won’t waste your time with a complete explanation of the process, we can tell you that our band is a Shock-And-Awe Sensory Assault Blackened Deathgrind (SASABD) band called Victor Rossi and His Big Fat Posse.

Now we’re the first to admit that this is not your “typical band”, but that’s the fun of this exercise creating something that’s not only never been done before, but that is also a true reflection of every player that is participating.

So in this fast-paced world of every changing musical tastes how do you market a Shock-And-Awe Sensory Assault Blackened Deathgrind band in one sentence? That was the task we gave to theHoseman, whose skill in creating memorable taglines netted him a coveted Figgie back in 2010. Well, for one thing you don’t rush him.  He may have taken almost all of his allotted time to settle on a tagline, but in the end it was the first one that popped into his head that he felt best summed up this band.

So without further adieu. Here is our band’s new tagline!

One for your head, two and your dead!

Ominous, threatening, and a bit cryptic…sounds perfect for a SASABD band if you ask us!  Is it the band counting off the beginning of a song in their own unique way, a drug reference or simply a twisted take on the opening lines of the Carl Perkins song “Blue Suede Shoes” made famous by the so-called King of Rock N’ Roll, Elvis Presley?  Hmm…now that’s an interesting angle…is Victor Rossi the evil doppelgänger of Elvis?  Or vice versa?  I guess we’ll find out as we enter the design and writing portion of this process.

Up next is the Band Image/Logo task.  frizbee and formerwageslave you’re on the clock!

    EEP! This is turning out to be very… you know, I don’t know the right word to complete that sentence. I’m intrigued, though!
