Pointed Sticks are a Canadian punk rock band from Vancouver. The original band consisted of vocalist Nick Jones, guitarist Bill Napier-Hemy, bassist Tony Bardach and drummer Ian Tiles. The band gets its name from dialogue in a famous sketch by Monty Python, "Self Defence Against Fresh Fruit," wherein Eric Idle repeatedly suggests that learning to defend against something like a pointed stick might be more useful than defending against fresh fruit.
