Square Pig in a Round Hole-August 26, 2017

Square PigNaming a band is an act of concentrated creative expression. Square Pig in a Round Hole exists to reward five favorite band names each week. Winners are (usually) listed alphabetically. Selection is wholly unscientific and subject to whim, with a bias toward wordplay, humor, and local flavor. In most cases, I won’t know anything about the bands at the time of selection. Thanks to the Seattle Times club listings for abundant source material!

I’m getting a late start, so I’m not going to waste words on a rambling preamble. You’re here for the band names, anyway, so here they are:

Bear Axe

An actual brutal thing that sounds like something comically naughty if you’re not listening closely. Teachers pray it is not the hot new scent for middle-school boys.

Circuit of Suns

Where was this one when I wanted to do an eclipse themed post? It could also refer to an interstellar delivery route.

M.T. Tank and the Gas Guzzlers

This one has it all: classic X and the Y structure, clever wordplay, and a touch of nostalgia for the bygone era when I learned to drive.

Telekinetic Yeti

Who doesn’t love a cryptid with superpowers that rhymes?

The Outbreak

Sick maniacs making a bid for freedom.
