Well, when i was a kid, i heard so much about Pontius Pilate. I envisioned in my kid mind a tall world war II "Pilot" dressed in his khaki flight uniform, pilot leather jacket, brown leather boots, leather helmet with the goggles atop the helmet, punching some guy on the stomach really hard.........Thus the name "Punches Pilot" came about. Hmm...."Punches Pilot" sounds like a good name for a punk rock band. The album cover should have that image of a "Pilot" punches some dude on the stomach.
