What's in a name?

They're called West Indian Girl. I figured they'd have a Caribbean sound to them. It turns out they're sort of a dreamy, spacey rock group. And they're not from the tropics at all. The founding members are actually from Detroit. They moved out to California and started releasing CDs in 2004. Their name comes from a legendary early street LSD. And it seems to have an influence on their music. They write catchy, dancey stuff that you can't help but snap your fingers to. The only downside to them is I think their name will keep some folks from listening to them. Another good group with a mediocre name.
