Not my kind of music, but they’re a good, tight, rocky band. I hope they do well!

Knoath!

To quote Wiki.

“a situation comedy has a storyline and ongoing characters in, essentially, a comedic drama. The situation is usually that of a family, workplace, or a group of friends through comedic sequences.”

“Seinfeld, Arrested Development, Modern Family, 30 Rock, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Louie and arguably…The Simpsons.”

+ M.A.S.H, Frasier, Rosanne, South Park, Futurama, Malcom in the Middle, Everybody Hates Chris, Bewitched, Get Smart… yeah, those Americans, couldn’t write a sitcom to save their lives.

“The prosecution rests…(With the exception of the Simpsons which I believe don’t fit the sitcom bill.)”

Simpsons not sitcom! perhaps you need to look up the definition of sitcom.

lol @ philly, how can you not love a show that features Danny DeVito on acid. That show is pure genius.

Never heard of this band until this, and glad I did. After listening to them I feel like I’ve just been fisted by a Russian tank! AWESOME.

They’re even better live.

Early contender for RA quote of the year.

    There’s a couple of things I love about this story.

    But the idea that a Fox producers, when they want to set the mood for a sleazy strip club, just can’t help themselves and reach for the driving rhythms of the belconnen rock pits, is just awesome.

Grocers apostrophe’s now? For shame!

The best way for Canberra bands to get national radio attention is to have their music burned by s***ty American television shows.

And I’m sure TONK would agree that Steel Panther are a great conduit for their ripped music.

Having just been made aware of Tonk’s existance through this fine journal, I have just now bought their album “Sister Switchblade” through a popular music download service.

F*** How I met Your Mother – we had SBS’s now defunct ‘Costa’s Garden Odyssey’ play our track, literally note for note without permission…
