Toad the Wet Sprocket
When Monty Python’s Eric Idle created the fictional band “Toad the Wet Sprocket” for
the program “Rutland Weekend Television” in 1975, he never dreamed that anyone
would actually use such a silly name. Fast forward to 1986, when four California teens
desperately needed to come up with a name to call their band for an upcoming gig at
a Goleta, CA watering hole called The Shack.
Since that day, “Toad the Wet Sprocket” has been the name of the four piece
California rock band consisting of lead singer Glen Phillips, guitarist Todd Nichols,
bassist Dean Dinning, and drummer Randy Guss. From 1989-1998, they made 5
studio albums which combined sold over four million copies, had five major radio hits,
and won over audiences across North America and Europe.
After breaking up in 1998, Toad would get together sporadically to play shows on a
casual basis, but their hard core fans never gave up hope for a new album. After
successful tours in 2006-2010, the band finally decided to put the last piece of the
puzzle in place, and committed to working together on new music. They also decided
to update their classic catalog, and created a new Greatest Hits album “All You Want”,
which came out in 2011.
Toad the Wet Sprocket are currently in the studio with producer Mikal Blue, and fans
can look forward to a new release and extensive tour in 2013.
