TISM Mordialloc Freeway
Change the name of the Mordialloc freeway to the TISM Mordialloc Freeway as suggested by Melbourne politician Melbourne politician David Limbrick and in honour of their song The Mordialloc Rd. Duplicator:
Melbourne politician David Limbrick
“This week the Liberal Democrats have spoken about sex and drugs, and I rise now to speak about rock and roll,” he began. “Liverpool had The Beatles, the Rocky Mountains had John Denver, and my electorate – south east metro – has TISM.”
“For those of you who have tragically missed out, TISM stands for ‘this is serious mum’. They are an anarchic rock and roll band who were active during the ’80s and ’90s. They are one of our greatest cultural exports.”
Noting that he managed to see them play live twice, Mr. Limbrick went on to quote from “their hit, ‘The Mordialloc Rd. Duplicator’ from the album Machiavelli And The Four Seasons” (despite the fact the song was never a hit, and was actually released on their Great Truckin’ Songs Of The Renaissance album).
“From Lower Springvale to the Frankston Freeway, until you get to that bitumen stain/That runs between two road highways, happy people trapped in its invidious single lane,” he quoted.
“There ain’t no better roadworks in the nation, than the Mordialloc Road duplication.”
