In deference to Anorak's favourite son, the magazine really ought to be called Take The Windows Out. *

He should definitely have his own column!

I think "Slain By Elf" might give the wrong impression.

I think Jam Econo makes you think too much of a particular type of music. I like Signal Box.

Oops - my three suggestions are all rubbish in the cold light of day. The "Mmm..." was just meant as pondering ;) "Take The Windows Out!" sounds a great title though. Context senstitive but maybe that's a plus?

I like that too, Pete. Problem is I've just realised it might sound a bit like it's just for LOUD music, maybe?

We got 20 suggestions now. Most love seems to go to Signal Box and Slow Graffiti. And Take The Windows Out, but I don't necessarily want to honour Mr.Ted that way.

I'll change the poll so serious voting can begin.

Does anyone think that if it ends up being called Slow Graffiti that people will assume that it's just a revamped version of that Bowlie zine?

Yeah, you could be right. Perhaps not the best idea. You might want to consider other options, Dennis.

The more I think about Signal Box, the more it seems to fit. A guitar pedal is a box that delays signals, a radio is a box that receives signals.

How many of those were made? It's quite a few years ago, too. But perhaps you're right. I personally like it better than Signal Box, but I could definitely live with that too.

I know I'm probably too impatient. I just want to move on (website, design, etc.).

This is the complete list of suggestions:
Slow Graftiti
Signal Box
Unclouded
Target Practice
Disharmony
Siamese
Behind The Mask
Potatoes
Jump Jump Jump
What We Do Is Secret
This Is Our Music
Guiding Star
Jam Econo
Our Trip
Unbelievable Things

I'm in the camp that it should *not* be called Slow Grafitti as there were loads of those printed and distributed worldwide. I remember sending some to the Philippines. I know I was heavily involved with it but I agree with others, making a brand new magazine with that title would conjure up images and associations of the old Bowlie fanzine.

I really like the name 'What We Do Is Secret'.

Are you going to update the voting system then? :-)

I too like the name 'What We Do Is Secret', but isn't that too clicquey? I think we especially want to not be clicquey.

Some people must have voted here 4 times already, with me changing my mind every time.

None of these are quite doing it for me. I reckon give it another week Dennis, see what else comes up.
