Way back before Round 1 of 70k, Andy wanted to find a good, not-too-expensive way to round out the lineup. To do so, he decided to book several largely unknown bands from a variety of countries and genres. One of them was Cripper, whom the sailors loved SO MUCH decided to give them an award for Greatest Previously Unknown Band. Now Andy does this every year, and we call these bands "Cripper bands".
