Old Favourites: T.I.S.M. – “(He’ll Never Be An) Old Man River”

“Drank the slab, drank the slab, drank the slab that Bon Scott drunk…”

So here’s one from quite awhile back that slipped my mind for a bit. I actually hadn’t even thought about them for ages until I was listening to the hilarious shit-talking podcast Sam and The Elderly Old Man (which you should totally check out) and they brought up the subject of today’s blog – This is Serious Mum, better known as T.I.S.M.

In the nineties, when I was literally growing up into the double digits, I never really had a full comprehension of how big these cats were. I now know of their remarkable cult status, and as such have come to totally appreciate videos like this. While this one isn’t their best vid, it captures the frenzy that surrounded them pretty brilliantly. It’s essentially a collage of live footage, seeing them go completely nuts and their audiences responding accordingly. My favourite bit is watching them crowdsurf and having people try and pull off their masks. That shit ain’t coming off, dudes, accept it! Anyway, have a squizz – and if you’ve never listeed to TISM before, get the fuck amongst it!
