What are the longest band names listed on PA?  And the shortest?
 
Are there any ridiculously long band names out there beyond the world of Prog?

Off the top of my head I guess maybe say, UK (or 3) and conversely, Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe

You have done a search I presume?

For the longest name, some Post-Rock bands are to be checked.
For the shortest name, Yes is already quite short.

I seem to recall a band called t whose reviews occasionally turn up on the front page.

There have been numerous bands/artists with one-letter names, but that's the only prog one I can think of offhand.

BRUTAL.

I remember seeing an album cover of an early Vangelis release that had his whole name ( Evangelos Papathanassiou) written from corner to corner. No wonder they shortened it!

What an awesome name! For anyone who doesn't understand German, it means "The Anarchistic Evening Entertainment".

No-Man, a band here on PA with Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson, was originally called:  No Man Is An Island (Except The Isle Of Man). That may be not the longest name but probably one of the longest.
