Another minor thing I'd like to mention. On the Sunday night as Adrian Hoffman was about to do a turn at the mic a member of the audience shouted out "Keep on stinging Triffids!". It might have been Ben, the one who requested Once A Day, but I couldn't be sure. With the combined slurring effects of a dutch accent and alcohol on the pronunciation, this confusing message threw Adrian off his stride a little. But I thought there was something quite cool about the sentiment and the way it was expressed, as it seems to encompass disparate elements of what makes the Triffids musical palette special within the bounds of very few words.

A recording of that Sunday night is now available via Dime. http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=338226 (login required)
I hope this OK with everyone.

Hi Y'All,

I'm a sometimes visitor to this site  but nonetheless a big Triffids fan since 1986. I now find myself working near Hasselt for the next six months. Seeing as Hasselt was central to getting the band to play again in the noughties I wondered is there some kind of concentration of fans in the area and if so are do they get together?

As Liesbeth and the guys that run the Belgie are huge fans and the epicenter of all things Triffids in Hasselt.
