"Electric Sumo" sounds brilliant: copyright it immediately and have this multi-faceted and much-loved performer in your debt *for ever*!

"The Great Euphrates" sounded pretty good at first, but then you have to imagine a DJ saying "And this next track's by The Great Euphrates . . ." -- it sounds too much a children's magician. Still, DJs have been managing "This next record is Garbage . . ." without too much trouble.

How about "Illuminate"? The Wonder Stuff once had the plan of renaming themselves after their first album (Eight Legged Groove Machine), releasing Hup under that name, and carrying on ad infinitum. Not surprisingly, the record company vetoed it.

Are there any obscure Can tracks he might like to pilfer?
