Q: How did you choose the name?
We were for a short time called The Rich Kids,
which was a joke about our hometown. But James disliked it
because it sounded like we were gloating. He came up with a list of other names
- all of which sucked - then jokingly suggested The FILTHY Rich Kids.
Matt liked it right away, and because he was running an open mic, he began introducing
James as "James of the Filthy Rich Kids." ... There was no turning back.
