How Toad the Wet Sprocket Got Their Name

I was reviewing my log files today and noticed a few people had searched for this, ”From what source did the band Toad the Wet Sprocket come up with their name?” The band got their name from an obscure Monty Python skit.  The following excerpt is taken from the bands site house of toad.

The answer is simple enough. The British comedy troupe known as Monty Python put out an album sometime in the seventies called CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATION. One of the tracks was called “Rock Notes” where a befuddled journalist announces: ”Rick Stardust, lead electric triangle player with Toad The Wet Sprocket, has had to have an elbow removed following their recent worldwide successful tour of Finland.”

Update: Sound Byte from Monty Python skit.
