    Scott Edgar is a brilliant comedian, and 1/3 of an amazing music/comedy group. I love his humour. I love his music - by that I mean the band's music caause all 3 seem to work so well together that it's impossible to know who is responsible for each song - both lyrics and tune. I recently saw Scod on the Mebourne International Comedy Gala on channel 10 and could not believe it. He has grown h.is hair, and lost the "Harry Potter" style glasses. maybe I just haven't seen a recent picture in awhile.



    I had the opportunity to see Tripod when they came to Townsville in 2005, and loved every minute of it. A lot of their genious lies in their on-stage antics - which are kind of lost on a cd, funnily enough.



    I realise I have been reviewing Tripod as much as Scott/Scod here, but sometimes it's impossible to seperate them. Sorry Scott.



    I cannot wait for him to be on Spicks and Specks again.moreless
