I'm a big fan of their work. I've been listening to Open Slather a lot lately. On it, there's this song called "Apparently", which is their self-described "political" song.
In the intro, Tripod mention that some people think they don't know about issues and that, in fact, they have been accused of being ... 'cock-spanks'.
Fucking hell, that is a funny term. I will use the term cock-spank with gusto from now on.
UPDATE: According to their wiki, Tripod got their first TV gig on Hey Hey's Red Faces segment. Tripod's goodness is such that I think they can be forgiven for this oversight.
