The amazing HODAG!!!
It doesn’t mean much to me or anyone else in the band at this point. It has a nice caveman rang to it, but otherwise people don’t really know how to take it and it’s basically impossible to make it look cool in graphic design, so it fits with our artistically masochistic ethos in that respect. Most bands I’ve ever been in have had a made up word for a name — Fpoon, Walter Meadornack, Sacrifix — so I’m at peace with that.”
