Band Name Origins:

  • There was a genetics experiment in the 1980s and 90s. To get more color in petunias, researchers added a plethora of genes coding for color and were surprised to find that white stripes resulted instead of a brighter, more noticeable color as hoped. Thus too much gene expression led to white stripes rather than creating the beautiful petunia as hoped. (The research later led to a revolution in genetics in discovery of RNAi) Submitted by: Andrew
  • Rumored to possibly be from a line in the lost-classic *Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains*: "If you work hard, maybe, in a couple of years time, you might be something different. At the moment, you’re just two white stripes." Submitted by: cornslaw
