One Question Interviews: The Copyrights

Luke McNeill (The Copyrights, Attorney)

SPB: Did you choose your band name partially because of your interest in law?

McNeill: No. It was actually a name we almost called me and Adam's old band, Moloko Plus. That name was a popular one for obvious reasons, and a dumb jazz band from Philadelphia sent us a cease and desist from using it, so we thought of Copyrights as an ironic name to change it to. We didn't pick that, but we picked that name soon after for our more "Ramones-based" punk band. It was almost required at the time to have a "The _____s" band name.
