The Takeover UK

Usually, bands take on the prefix "UK" when there's an actual need for it -- differentiating the Mission UK from the Philly soul band of the same name, for instance -- but for Pittsburgh born the Takeover UK, it seems as if it were done out of a desire for "cool" or "cred." Eventually pulling up stakes and taking the melange of '60s tinged sounds coupled with late-'70s punk rock to New York, the Takeover UK soon released a debut EP, It's All Happening on Rykodisc. Released in the summer of 2008, the EP was merely a warm-up for the band's first full-length effort, Running with the Wasters, due in the fall of that same year. ~ Chris True

I thought it was a play on words. Your mission should you choose to accept it:
Takeover UK.

Does suffix even apply since it isn't part of the word?

Came here to comment on UK being the suffix, not prefix, as well.

It's such a stupid way of opening a bio, too. If you were to write a Rolling Stones bio, would you start by contemplatin g why they named themselves that? An artist bio isn't the spot for critique.

...And I don't think it's for cred. I've met the band...it's almost as if their intentions are more than their name. If you really listen to their first EP (which I owned until a dog tore it apart), they have a reminiscent sound that the UK started around the time of the Beatles. So I believe that's what they mean - take over the sound of the UK and bring it back to those days.
Yeah, those guys are awesome, by the way. And they're totatlly hilarious at a show when wasted drunk.

Yep. Suffix.

UK would be the suffix in that instance.
