Originating in Canada’s Calgary, Alberta, the four-headed post-punk group formerly known as Viet Cong revealed their intention to change their disputable name. In the midst of searching for another alias, Chad VanGaalen stepped in and put forth a bunch of potential names, from which Preoccupations was instituted. It’s no surprise that a name referring to the execution of innocent people would be upsetting; on the other hand, a name doesn’t make a man worse, if the man doesn’t make his name worse, right? The band is sorry, the name’s been changed – it’s time to tour.
