Music, please, maestro

Since we launched our Compact Pussycat competition, TS has been inundated with suggestions for accountancy-related band names. Well, perhaps that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but if our readers don’t feel like sampling Norwich’s top all-girl punk-pop band, then who are we to argue.

Of the responses we got, nil points go to Will Henry. While we agree that the Tax Pistols is indeed a great name, it was mentioned in these very pages a few weeks ago.

We did like the suggestion from ‘Andrew’, who wants to start a band called Rule of 78, which, he says, ‘recalls the glory years of British punk’ and, erm, the accountancy student’s favourite shortcut for calculating loan repayments.

But we chose the entry from Steve Clarke as our favourite for the genius that lay in its sheer simplicity.

Ladies and gentlemen, we give you ‘The Lost Profits’.
