File Under: Fun With Prog

trollsRegular readers will no doubt be aware of my, ahem, “issue” with prog rock, and by “issue” I mean weakness. I dig some of it, I can’t help it! I occasionally pray to the alter of Alan Parsons and have been known to sing along to By-Tor And The Snow Dog by Rush.

But MY GOD do prog bands have some dumb-ass names! Monikers such as “White Willow”, “Quasar”, “Qwaarn”, “Gak Omec”, “Spock’s Beard”, “Octopus Syng” and, for real, “Peter Pan”.

Feeling in a cheeky mood during lunch today I jotted down some possible prog band names of my own and thought I’d share. For all of my proggy friends out there I’m just kiddin’ around and I encourage you who are prone to sarcasm and creative thinking to join in on the fun and come up with a few on your own. It’s easy! Just think of any Norse God, your favorite beverage,  a random adverb and you’re there!
