It must be difficult to come up with a recording name that people will recognize but isn't too long to remember. I think Mr.Reed did a nice job of naming himself with something functional and unique. At least its not something insane like Flagitious Idiosyncrasy In The Dilapidation. Yes thats a Japanese female grind band. If I have to use a dictionary to understand any part of a band name thats fucked. I can barely say it! Back to the talented Eli "Paperboy" Reed. Here are some words from his people at Warner Brothers: "The Boston-born, Mississippi- and Chicago-bred Reed has two previous albums under his belt, 2008's Roll With You and 2010's Come & Get It, which have earned him a fervent fan following in Europe (where he was nominated as "Breakthrough Artist of the Year" by Britain's Mojo Magazine) and widespread critical acclaim from the U.S. media. Rolling Stone has called him "a soul singer who conquered both street corners and punk clubs with a mix of grooved-out rave-ups and slow-burning ballads," while Spin has praised his "his boyishly furious rasp that transforms familiar blues tropes into something simultaneously self-effacing and brash."
