TISM's entry in Ralph's 100 Best Bands Of All Time, by Adam Perrett


No one is safe from TISM: Sophie Lee, Kate Fisher, Jeff Kennett, River Phoenix, TS Elliot, Jim Morrison, SBS, the western suburbs, they’ve all copped vitriolic lashings from the Melbourne men in hoods. Who are they? School teachers? Lawyers? University lecturers? Famous folk? Survivors of the 1966 St Kilda premiership team? No one knows, and less care. They did, however, write a song called All Homeboys Are Dickheads, and for that alone should be voted into the rock Hall of Fame.
Essential song: Lillee Caught Dilley Bowled Milli Vanilli
