It's time for another round of Name This Band! Here's a promo pic of a band that turned up in the Mercury mailbag. Now YOU get to name the band. Just leave the funniest, goofiest, most accurate, and/or meanest name in the comments below. I'll get started with one:
A Dusting of Cinnamon
Okay, let's hear 'em! And as ever with NTB, there is no winner and no prize. :(

It's time again for another installment of Name This Band, wherein I sift through the hundreds of emails lobbed into the Mercury mailbag by hopeful publicists, and find a picture to single out for your band-naming pleasure.

Leave your best, stupidest, funniest, meanest, cleverest band name in the comments! As with recent installments of Name This Band, there is no winner and no prize. :(

Name This Band: Ridiculously Long Fingers Edition

It's time for another round of Name This Band!

For this installment of the winner-less, prize-less, reward-less game, here's yet another ridiculous press photo of a band we shall leave nameless (their real name isn't very interesting), and invite you to make up a name in the comments. This photo leads one to ask the question: With fingers like that, how can they even play their instruments?

Ready, set, name!

Name This Band returns! It's the game where everyone loses, even if you decide not to participate. Let's take a look at today's band:

So go on, name this band in the comments. I'll reveal who it is later. (A hint: this band doesn't entirely suck, particularly if you're a fan of yodeling Dutchman and progressive rock. Oh, and Roger Dean did the cover of their upcoming album.)
