Paddington RSL

Top work on the gigography; it was wonderful to scan back through long lost years and venues. I still have a favourite spot for Paddo RSL and also Sydney Cove Tav in '88 where the opener was a cracking cover of Sympathy for the Devil. The Go Betweens were also home that year, so there was much good music around. The other one is a casual acoustic gig of sorts - well a few band members strumming guitars at least - out the back of Hot Records, Darlo around the time of Treeless Plain.  The first time I'd heard those songs....

Over at yourtube I note someone has posted the video clip for Trick of the Light.  Timeless...

Have to say, I was at both these gigs, Paddo RSL and Sydney Cove tavern and the SCT gig just sticks in my memory as one of the best shows I've ever seen.
If I remember correctly it was just before Calenture took off (I could be wrong) on the charts and the band just seemed so happy and vibrant.
It seemed like they would play forever and not in a bad way.
They were even able to get away with doing a version of tie a yellow ribbon!

Just listened to the RSL/Sydney gig (decent audience recording), and it's a cool performance, strong setlist.
But I think I prefer earlier Triffids, when they were more unknown and working harder to win audiences over, if you know what I mean.
