A wheelbarrow by any other name....

Cleveland homeboys eighth blackbird (they all went to Oberlin, close enough for us to claim them) reveal that before they settled on their name (after a Wallace Stevens poem), they considered other names, such as "red wheelbarrow" (after the Walter Carlos Williams poem) and "tastes like chicken" (no literary citation offered, but perhaps a tribute to the hazards of touring.)
