One-time TISM guitarist James (Jock) Paull has had a snake named after him.

Jockpaullus Hoser is a North American snake. It was named by reptile expert and scientist Raymond Hoser, who is known as the Snakeman. Hoser has named more snakes than anyone else alive. He has named 1 in 7 snakes on the planet.

Hoser runs the Reptile Party business in Melbourne. Icehouse used his Goanna in the ‘Great Southern Land’ video.

TISM guitarist Paull went under the name Tokin Blackman in TISM. He died of cancer in 2008. He was in TISM between 1991 and 2004. Paull co-wrote TISM’s biggest song ‘(He’ll Never Be An) Ol’ Man River’. The song ranked no 9 on the Triple J Hottest 100 of 1995.
