The Triffids - Born Sandy Devotional Reissue


I received an email yesterday about the reissue of The Triffids 1986 album Born Sandy Devotional (with bonus tracks) and I have to say I was really impressed with what I have heard so far, quite frankly I really knew next to nothing about them although I had heard of the group before. They were one of the Australian bands along with the Go Betweens and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds who went to England in the 80's to "make it" as they say. Really good songwriting featuring great lyrics with real heart and soul. I really like the vocals of lead singer David McComb quite a bit and then I remembered that he did a cover of the Leonard Cohen song Don't Go Home With Your Hard-On from the tribute album I'm Your Fan that I liked as well.

Martin Casey became the bass player for the Bad Seeds in the early 90's and is still holding down that position in the band.

Below are a few songs for you to sample and check out.

Lonely Stretch

Seabirds

Plus the bonus track Convent Walls
