Saying Hello and asking stupid
« on: April 12, 2010, 08:45:37 PM »
I'm new to the forum.
Just want to say  "Hello".
It's not so easy to post something, if you are not used to this kind of forum.
I'm a Neil Young fan (any Neil fans around ? ) and got into Triffids accidentially : Someone sold his record collection and recommened Triffids . I've heart the name, but was thinking about different musik : Beasts of Burdon
(Shame on me..) But I've been seduced and got all the stuff  by now.
I'm from Austria  (someone has to..) and my first show was @ the Barbican.
My Q's are simple and - I'm sure - asked frequently ??
Are the Triffids a taper-friendly band ?? (guess why I'm asking)
How is the guy how sang a song, who was introduced as fan and who ran the merch ??
Greetings from Vienna and maybe meet someone at the BES @ Vienna  next Monday
Alex

1. I believe The Triffids are friendly enough and made a few cassettes themselves. Past experience suggests that they are not averse to non-commercial live bootleg distribution on a small scale amongst fans where otherwise unavailable commercially. But that's complete guesswork on my part.

2. If you mean the young man introduced as having bought a seat in the front row only to find himself performing (I don't know who manned the merch stall), that would be Adrian Hoffman of Perth band The Morning Night:
