RIP - James Paull - Tism 1957-2008 [Aug. 5th, 2008|07:55 pm]

As I have been absent from LJ for a while due to website blocking at my work, we didn't have much of an update when one of our wonderful TISM members died. :( :(
So I thought I'd post an article from livenews.com.au that a good friend of mine wrote: 

_____
It has been confirmed that James "Jock" Paull, guitarist for popular Australian satirical rock band This Is Serious Mum, has died of cancer aged 51.


Paull, best known by his anonymous TISM moniker 'Tokin Blackman', was a member of the group for 16 years and 5 albums, co-writing their hit songs "Greg The Stop Sign" and "(He'll Never Be An) Old Man River". 
TISM singer and lyricist Ron Hitler Barassi said of his fallen band mate:

"He always had the licks, just never the poses. James Paull – Jock to nearly everyone – was one of very few who could say "I spent a year composing in Amsterdam" and not sound like he was on Radio National.

"Jock was (the stage's) king. Live performance, that usurper of so many pretenders, never once dethroned him. He played guitar so well he seemed unaware of his fingers.

"Other people would care about other things; but, for Jock, it was (his partner Matty), his daughter, and music. The music seemed to speak. "For him," it told us, "nothing else was as good as this."

The defiant group won an ARIA award for their 1995 album "Machiavelli and The Four Seasons", but bewildered the media with their guerilla public relations tactics, and insistence on wearing masks during performances and interviews.

Do any of you know if the members of TISM were fans of The Pork Dukes? They seem to have a similar sense of humour and there is the obvious "secret identity" link too.

Jock Cheese alive and well, Token not so... [Apr. 9th, 2008|12:27 pm]

Looks like I've been confused by my source. Following this post, I can report Jock Cheese is alive and well, the TISM member who died today was actually Token Blackman (real name James Paul(?)) who my source knew as Jock in Real Life. Hence the confusion.

Either way, we're down a guitarist :-(

Hey All,

Have just heard some unhappy news. My TISM insider tells me Jock
Cheese (Jack Holt?) died quietly this morning :-(

He's been sick for a while - which was probably a contributing factor
to the demise of our favourite band.

I will now fish out "Platter" and play it a few times.

Hey Folks, I notice there hasn't been a post here in aaaaaaaaaages.

So, this is some sad news. I hear from my TISM insider that Jock Cheese is not a well man, is in palliative care and is unlikely to survive more than a few days :-(

Will have to fish out my copy of "Platter" and play it some.
