Literally Inspired

A little while ago a I wrote a post to mark the anniversary of the Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, where I mentioned a couple of bands who has been inspired by the great book.

And that got me thinking about occasins where musicians have been inspired by, or reference, literature.

(I say that post was “a little while ago”, it was back in March, so I’ve been thinking about this for a while…)

So here we go, by way of a multiple choice question:

Is Veruca Salt:

a) the name of a spoiled brat in Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

b) the name of an American band who are permanently excused from swimming lessons and who sound (on today’s record, at least) remarkably like The Breeders

c) both of the above.


Veruca Salt – Seether

More soon.
