Square Pig in a Round Hole-January 27, 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!

Some weeks, it’s a struggle to find five band names I want to write about; other weeks, the riches overflow. This was one of the latter type, with enough outstanding names for a post on Friday alone. I looked through the whole week of listings to be sure I chose the best. My search reaped this generous harvest:

Dismal Thinkings

I read “thinkings” as the intersection of thoughts and feelings, which can certainly take a dismal turn on a gray day in January.

Fossil Youth

Either old before one’s time or preserved in an immature state.

Green Milk from the Planet Orange

Delivered fresh daily by Luke Skywalker.

The Hollerables

When your indoor voice just won’t cut it.

Unbiblical Chords

A typo or mispronunciation turns our first source of nourishment into the devil’s music. I chose this one even before I did a double-take and saw the joke.
