WITH a name like NATIONAL PORNOGRAPHIC, it is no surprise the Brisbane band has attracted plenty of attention.

The group's five members have rubbed shoulders with some of the biggest names in the porn industry in recent months and it is all because of the peculiar moniker.

``It's basically a play on words on National Geographic,''DJ DAVE WIN said.

The first incident saw National Pornographic receive an invite to pose for a series of shots in a marketing campaign for US star JENNA JAMESON last year.

Another brush with fame came when the band played at a party for porn star A private party performance for porn star RON JEREMY added to the band's expanding gig schedule.

In the past 18 months, National Pornographic has played more than 200 shows, winning over audiences with its blend of slick acid, jazz and funk instrumentals.

``Being the live band we are, if you hear the CD it doesn't do the live show justice, you need to see it, too,'' Win said.

National Pornographic will support BUTTERFINGERS at THE BREWERY tonight. Tickets are on sale from the venue for $8.
