Now more than ever I wonder whether this  Santa Barbara CA band with the strong songs of singer/guitarist Glen Phillips could have been twice as popular if they had taken a name other than an obscure Monty Python comedy bit. As it stands, they still managed to sell over a million copies of their third album in 1991, Fear , containing the controversial anti-date rape song “Hold Her Down”, performed here absolutely live In the Studio in May 1994. And Toad the Wet Sprocket have reformed and are still a great live band today. – Redbeard
