who're Akira and who's Akira The Don?

i’ve just been on the playlouder forum and they’re having a discussion about (from what I can understand) a band called Akira and a guy called Akira The Don, who I’m more familiar with.

band names aren’t always the best indicator of the quality of a band’s output (Radiohead, Cex, or Led Zeppelin, anyone?), but I’d be intersted to hear what a band called Akira would sound like if they’re inspired by the movie…

    bands with japanese/cartoon-sounding names tend to be shit.

    one of the worst bands ever was zirconia (whose singer has since gone solo; Tom Vek). one exception is urussei yatsura, who i quite liked.

    i must confess to never having heard of either of these bands or the cartoons their names come from.

    shows how much i know!

    MF Doom/Viktor Vaughan would be an exception, but he’s not a band (although he’s got enough aliases to claim that he is!) and his name’s taken from a comic, which isn’t exactly the same thing…
