Triffids DVD
« on: July 09, 2010, 05:04:52 PM »
Are there any plans to release a Triffids DVD?

It would be great to have all the promo videos and any other footage collected together.

I figure this one isn't on the agenda at the moment, friends?

After the 10CD box set, which is nothing short of awesome, I am not about to ask for anything more, but am curious if any consideration has been given to this one...

Cheers

Is a DVD still in the works or is Love of Will next on the agenda?

Speaking of DVDs... what about Megan Simpson's Triffids documentary.
When this screened last year at the Revelation Film Festival in Perth, Megan did not discount a DVD release. She said she was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the image ( having not seen this since she made the documentary 25+ years ago). I think it would be a very worthy addition to The Triffids catelogue!

Can I point out that The Night Of The Triffids wasn't an Australian TV production, it was actually a student movie directed by Megan when she was at AFTRS and therefore is not covered by the Australian TV APRA agreement.

I've seen most of those but not the French tv ones unless they're something else. We only played in France once. Must be The Tube Stolen Property broadcast on French tv.

Hi

It's not french television, but Belgian french speaking television.
Recorded in the "vooruit" in Gent, and in the dressing room of the same "vooruit"

Don't think I've seen it then Harald. Have you?
Barbican was not filmed professionally.

I found it on an old video tape a friend of mine gave me a few years ago.
If my memory is right Doughie (do I spell this correct ?), the Triffids roadie , a very nice person who I met during the Hasselt concerts plays mandolin on the dressing room version of jerdacutup man. And he wears an american civil war hat.
This is probably the concert the day after the concert in the lux in Herenthout that I attended.
The video tape also countains some hilarious footage of David Johansen with Johnny Thunders in the backstage of The Torhout/Werchter festival in 1984.
Johnny joined him on stage to play Personality crisis.
They 're dead drunk and a Belgian journalist tries to have a conversation with them.
And David J starts adressing the Belgian king in the camera...

I do remember and I have seen it.  It is pretty funny. Dug Guthrie was/is a good musician and a fine person.

Yes, this is the version of the Triffids clip I listed. I did wonder who the guy playing the mandolin was in the dressing room version of Jeddercuttup Man.

I have also made a few changes to some of the clips I mentioned after doing a bit more research:

The clip I listed as
"Decibels", French TV, October 1986
- Stolen Property (live in the studio)
is actually the "The Tube", UK TV, November 1, 1985 but my version was broadcast on French TV (I was originally confused by the French TV titles at the end)

I still cannot identify this one:
French TV, 1987
- How Could I Help But Love You (live)
It is probably from Belgium TV (it has a French speaking host the end) and has a title on the screen as "The Triffids - The Aaron Neville's Song"
It is a live concert performance.

The clip I listed as
French TV, 1987
- Kelly's Blues (live)
- Interview with Robert McComb
is actually from Werchter Festival, Belgium, July 5, 1987 and was probably broadcast on Belgium TV with French subtitles.
After some research I recognized the Werchter Church that was shown in the footage and could be seen from the stage!

The clip I listed as Belgian TV, 1987
- Interview with David McComb
- Bury Me Deep In Love (mimed in the studio)
is from the "Bingo!", Belgian TV program, December 7, 1987 since Dave McComb mentions that they play their last gig tonight and just played 2 Belgium gigs. They must have recorded this before travelling to Amsterdam for their final concert of 1987
