Name/Blame Game

"They hijacked the name [UV Tigers]," says a music-scene insider who claims that Ocean Beach band Cape May registered the Internet domain name of the UV Tigers, another local band.

Cape May lead singer Andre Che, who says none of his bandmates were involved, had this explanation: "I went with some friends to the UV Tigers' debut performance at the Casbah in February..... We got really pissed [loaded] and watched a great show. Upon arriving home after the show, it was decided that we would frolic through the cyber digital land of Ultra Violet Tigers. When arriving at their website, it said, 'THIS DOMAIN IS AVAILABLE'!!! Now, in the land of site-domain squatters and cyber sharks, one never knows from minute to minute what will be available tomorrow.

"So, my friend and Web guru (who wishes to remain anonymous...) says he wants to buy it in order to save it for the Tigers. He then suggests that he wants to contact them the next day and get to work on their website with them. As I was the only one on hand with [a credit card], I volunteered my Visa for what seemed like a good idea.... [My friend] ended up taking off a few days later, only to abandon the entire UV website project altogether.

"I forgot about it and paid no mind to it. I tried to contact the guys in the UV Tigers a couple times about different things, such as shows and recording, and never heard back from them until a week ago, when they inquired about me being the 'master of their domain.'

"They seemed upset that I had bought their domain name and wanted to know why I bought it. I told them the truth. We were not malicious or ill-natured in our acquisition of their domain name. Either way, I told them I had forgotten about it, and that they could have it.... It's all squared away now. It's back in their hands."

Gary Hankins, lead singer of UV Tigers, has no comment on the issue. At this time, uvtigers.com is not a working site.

Cape May is currently on a West Coast tour. The UV Tigers appear July 15 at the Casbah.
