Tripod are Gatesy, Scod and Yon and they're not afraid of admitting that they are comfortable doing three part harmony with other men. Tripod is a lot more than a musical comedy act, they are the classic comedy three hander; the cool kid who can take a while to catch on, the geek who can take a while to catch on and the weird boy who catches on but would prefer to make flute noises. From soft, passionate ballads about god knows what to onstage antics with power tools, Tripod go to great lengths to poke fun at each other. Not since The Partridge Family Reunion Show have we seen so much onstage tension.
These boys are all over this wide, brown land. They have sold-out shows at the Melbourne Comedy, Adelaide Fringe and WA Fringe Festivals as well as the Sydney Opera House. Triple J listeners all have become taken with the silly yet brilliant songs they come up with in their Song-In-An-Hour segment every Tuesday morning on the breakfast show. They have released three full-length albums, the latest of which is a collection of the best songs from their Triple J spot. Titled About An Hour of Song-In-An-Hour the album is currently selling like hotcakes through Universal/ABC Music. They are also on the box, as part of the team in the new Ten Network sketch show skitHOUSE, which they end every week with a song (what else?).
So while the cool kid and the geeky kid are taking a while to catch on, the rest of the nation is already there.
