Square Pig in a Round Hole-December 16, 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!

At this dark time of year, the light of creativity is a gift. There was a lot to be found in the club listings this week; these five shone brightest:

Breakneck Love

A thrilling and dangerous romance.

Dr. Hellno and the Yesmen

Classic X and the Y structure in perfect balance.

Hi Crime

It’s a lot less threatening spelled this way.

In Aisle Eight

Cleanup? Meltdown? Fight? Breakneck romance? The setting is provided. Imagine the story.


For that time of month when you’re dead.
