HOT VOX POP QUIZ WITH THE HARRINGTONS

We've been a band for three years now, with Max coming into the picture about a year ago, and we just couldn't get rid of him.
Who came up with the band name and does it have a story or any meaning behind it?
We went to a jam night with the sherlocks and the announcer asked what we were called, we didn't have a name at that point, and Brad was wearing a black Harrington jacket, so their manager said why don't you call yourselves The Harringtons? And we never changed it after that.
