This is a site dedicated to the Australian band from the eighties with the John Wyndham inspired name and a collection of songs of peerless quality courtesy of the late, very great David McComb.
2006 was the start of a busy time for this site that continues to this day. In 2006 the complete Triffids’ catalogue began rolling out in its shiny new remastered and repackaged form and it is now complete from the point of view of official releases. We have also delved deeply into unreleased rarities with a 10 CD boxed set. 2006 also marked the beginning of a series of live performances by the remaining Triffids and friends to keep alive the memory of David McComb. We have performed in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Belgium, London and Athens
We’ve been very fortunate to find great homes for the catalogue -Liberation for Australia and New Zealand and Domino for the rest of the world. All the re-issued CDs should be Preadily available, with the possible exception of the boxed set which came in a limited edition on 1000 copies.
If you are using Internet Explorer you may be having problems with some of the menus on this site. It works well in all other browsers I have tested, and will hopefully work in IE soon.
Exciting front page news:
Jill and Alsy will be launching the album in Melbourne at the Cornish Arms on Friday 7th September and at Pure Pop on Saturday afternoon, 8th September. And it’s springtime too.
Jill Birt has a new CD out and it’s a cracker. Featuring all new songs by Jill and recorded in Perth at Shaun Hoffmann’s studio, the CD features all the Triffids that Jill could muster ie all of us in some shape or form. An atmospheric gem of a record very much in the style of Jill’s regular contributions to Triffids’ albums, the CD is available at very select record stores, at gigs and here. We can only accept Paypal payments at this stage but you can use any credit card without having to sign up to Paypal so don’t let that deter you. The CDs will be mailed out by Jill herself and I believe she plans to sign all of them. A collector’s item at a bargain price.
