    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    A lost classic

    The word classic is bandied about far too often with regard to popular music, usually just an alternative to 'old and popular', but here is a classic that genuinely lives up to its name and, whilst old(-ish), was and is certainly not that popular. David McComb's doomed romantic was the perfect front for music of this sort (not that there is that much else out there that sounds like this). And its a music full of contradictions: epic and personal, expansive yet claustrophobic, its themes and settings undoubtedly Autralian but touching on the universal. The songs themselves are a real mix, from the epic Wide Open Road, to the eerie Tarrilup Bridge, from the heart-breaking Stolen Property to the thunderous Lonely Stretch... demonstrating the Triffids' range of musical skills and stylings at every turn.

    This album was realeased to critical acclaim when it debuted back in 1986 and it seemed at the time that Australia was the centre of some alternative musical universe.... and ruling it were the holy trinity of The Go-Betweens, Nick Cave and The Triffids. The former two have gone on to greater glory and long-term career success, but with the death of McComb in a car accident a few years back that will never now happen for the Triffids. Do your record collection a favour, make the world a better and bigger place and buy this album , cherish it, tell your friends about it.... and when you listen to it raise a glass to the memory of one of rock's great lost romantics.



    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Best Album Title of all time ?

    Of course the eighties were all about image , fashion and clever management. Well nobody told Australia it seems because , along with the Go-Betweens' "Liberty Belle" , the triffids showed the world what they could be listening to with this majestic record. Music lovers starved of beauty could feel happy that someone out there was recording songs to fill the soul. Tracks like "Wide open road" seem to point to the overwhelming vastness of the Outback. Others capture the loneliness that such freedom can bring and "Let's go out tonight" remains one of the most painful songs I've ever heard. While other Triffids albums are easier to get into or more intriguing , none captures the feeling of growing up in a small Australian coastal town as authentically or as personally as this. Essential listening.
