This year we decided to change our name because the old one was singling out myself and someone else as the main part of the team and we wanted to be more inclusive. To include everyone we had a meeting with the whole team to brainstorm a new one. After a few hours we hadn't landed on anything we liked, then the 3 year old daughter of our composer asked her uncle if he was going to work "tomorrow today" and it just felt perfect.

So yeah we let a 3 year old girl name our team and I don't regret it for a second.

There's a zine in the Hamilton library by a kid at Peachgrove Intermediate about his gang that turn up to school in a Bugatti supercharger, nuke school, get put in prison and then break out just to do it again. It's called Peachgrove Bad Boys - we can only hope to be half as badass as they are.
And DAMN HELL ASS KINGS is a Simpsons reference (from the one where the school model UN club gets stuck on a desert island and Homer starts an internet company)
