    Windhollow Faire, the doomed folk-rock group from the novella Wyldling Hall by Elizabeth Hand. When I finished the book I was so eager to hear the album, then I remembered it was all fictional! :laugh:

    Ten bands mentioned in A Clockwork Orange, three of which since inspired real bands to use those names (the other two are a coincidence I think):

    • Heaven Seventeen: Heaven 17 is a New Wave/Synth Pop band from Sheffield, England, active from 1980-present
    • Johnny Zhivago: Johnny Zhivago was a Punk Band from Essex, England, active from 1999-2002
    • The Humpers: The Humpers were a Garage Punk band from Long Beach, California, active from 1989-1998
    • The Sparks: Sparks are a Rock/Pop band from Los Angeles, California, active from 1970-present
    • The Legend: Legend was the name of an English heavy metal band, a Shadows tribute band, a christian rock band, and a rockabilly band
    • The Blow Goes
    • Bread Brothers
    • Cyclops
    • The Comic Strips
    • Goggly Gogol

    Two pages in and other than a sneaky reference to an earlier incarnation in the OP, no mention of the greatest of them all: the legendary Spinal Tap!

    At the time of the original movie they were clearly fictional, although they sort of morphed into a concrete satirical group in the '90s.

    Edit: They were mentioned, I just missed it somehow! Sorry!
