You could make charts up forever, the way Python exercised the various forms of conedy- cerebral, absurdistic and slapstick.

So far on this board, Kraftwerk were largely influenced by The Beatles, and now Python are The Beatles.


Anyone got any other point of reference?

Anyway, it's way too harsh comparing Palin to McCartney, Palin's post-Python work hasn't been great, but it's not that bad.

I think it's a fair comparison. A group of young people utterly changing their medium of entertainment forever.
