Cooper Temple Clause

English Wokingham (Berkshire) was the home of Cooper Temple Clause, an alternative rock band that only managed to bring out three albums.

Even though the members of the band were a little giggly about the origin of their name at first, it remains a reference to serious business.

Cooper Temple Clause band name explanation - William Cowper-TempleThe Cowper-Temple Clause was an amendment to the text of an important English Act of 1870 that regulated compulsory primary education. That amendment was filed by the Liberal MP William Cowper-Temple (born William Francis Cowper, later Baron Mount Temple).

Cowper's name was pronounced as Cooper, an opportunity gratefully seized by the members of Cooper Temple Clause to modify the band name accordingly - in this case amend is perhaps a better word.
