The Simple Lice are a comedy music quartet from Georgeland, formed in 1998.
The band began its life as a trio of Paul Darrenson, Stephen Prentice and Mick Kaine, but a fourth member, George Mendez, joined in 2004. The band are known for their skillful emulation of other musical groups and pinpoint accuracy in their parodies.
The band's comedy draws largely on absurdist humour and non-sequiturs, as well as their continual onstage bickering. Their songs are generally parodies of the music of other groups and styles, but they rarely directly parody another song.
