Abstract

The presentation relates to a study of the names of pop groups who had some degree of commercial success in the UK in the 1960s. It includes linguistic and semantic features of the names, examples of word play, the particular circumstances (known or conjectured) whereby a name was chosen, and, partly overlapping with the latter, intertextual connections between group names and words and phrases from literature and from other parts of the musical world.
