Blancmange

How Blancmange band got their name - RecipeEnglish synth pop band from Harrow.

According to singer Neil Arthur inspiration for the name was gained at a crazy party, during a game where the goal was to devour a massive blancmange (a dessert made with almonds, cream and sugar) as fast as possible.

Other games were played as well, such as drinking a beer glass filled with curry sauce. ‘Pint of curry' could have been an alternative for the band name, according to a sobered up Arthur.

Active: 1979-1987; 2006-present, GBR
