An unfortunate name

The saxophone quartet, Fukyo which comprises bigastrenses, a young man from Los Montesinos and another from Valencia won second prize in the biennial Concurso Permanente de Jóvenes Intérpretes de España held in Bibao.

As a result the group will now tour Spain and abroad with a network that organises over 200 concerts each year.   

I hope they don’t plan to tour England with a name like that. For the benefit of my Spanish readers the name in English sounds like the vulgar expressions, “cójale” or “jódete”.
