Square Pig in a Round Hole-January 6, 2018

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!

Happy New Year and an enlightened Epiphany to all! Bands continue to feed me excellent writing prompts, so I expect to be here sharing them for the duration. 2018 begins with these lovelies:

Diagnosis: you (are) matter. (I didn’t know the song but I love it as a name for a Black Sabbath tribute band.)
