About The Name

“Shooting lead rabbits” (lead as in LED, not LEED) is a tradesman’s term that describes a particular technique in roofing. It’s an odd name that is often confused with representing the mass slaughter of helpless little bunnies, but really it is significant for other reasons entirely‚Ķ We were at the Wield and Downland outdoor museum a while back, and in one of the barns there was a display of iron works and masonry. On the wall there were examples of tools and sketches of techniques, and above a brief description of some very old technique in thatch roofing was the heading “Shooting Lead Rabbits”. My sister spotted it and said what a great selection of words it was and that it should mean something really cool. A year later we were in the pub and it was time to come up with a band name. I said to Bianca, “what was that cool term Katie saw on the wall at the outdoor museum?” B said “Shooting Lead Rabbits”.
