Fat Bob's Café

Today's phrase that has no hits on Google (though has one hit on Altavista and Alexa). I have recently bought the obscure album Keats by Keats off amazon.com marketplace, which contains an interview at the end with a couple of the people involved. This contains the tit-bit that the name 'Keats' comes from a restaurant that one of them liked, and the bloke being interviewed says that at least it wasn't 'Fat Bob's Café'. Personally I think this is a much better name than Keats, maybe if they had used it they would have been more inspired. If I ever need a band name in real life or a novel, I will use it, though I still prefer 'Sperm Bank Babies' - though there was a minor punk band of that name apparently.
