Just because they’re called ‘Of Montreal’ doesn’t mean they’re actually ‘from Montreal’
It’s the most confusing trend in indie rock: naming your band after a place you’re not actually from. To name just a few, you've got Of Montreal (not Canadian), I’m From Barcelona (not Spanish), the Bronx (not New Yorkers) and Brighton, MA (not from Massachusetts). What gives?
Have you been keeping up with the geographical madness? Take our quiz and see if you can tell where these bands are really from.—Andy Hermann, Metromix
