Can There Be a Worse Name Than the Reivers?

By Michael Corcoran. Austin 360 website (blog). Aug. 28, 2008.

Zeitgeist was so perfect. Then Austin’s best ’80s indie pop band had to change their name- to the Reivers. The newly reformed band announced Thursday at Antone’s sold-out Child Guidance Center benefit that they are now called Right Or Happy – as in when you’re in a fight with your signif-o, do you want to be right or happy? (Isn’t that a Blue Collar Comedy routine?)

Our number one Right Or Happy fan Jay says John, Kim, Toth and Garrett played “four new amazing songs.” They’re back!

hey, it’s a good name and we can call ourselves anything we want. honestly, i heard that even spoon didn’t think that was such a great name to begin with. peter holsapple likes it and that’s more than good enough for me. course, i’m biased.
