On The Street Where You Live

Have a look at this. On The Street Where You Live.mpg
It is a video clip of an early incarnation of The Triffids performing "On The Street Where You Live"
The still attached are by Kathryn Roberts who took her own camera to capture the memory.

Thanks Chris - worth watching for the parked cars alone!
It's an idea some day, in my tears, my dreams...

Thanks Chris. David wrote quite a few songs around this time using famous old song and, even more so, movie titles: A Place in the Sun, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof and this one, which I was just singing the other day; there are some utter classics from that era that SOMEBODY should be playing.

I'm pleased to hear that - it's an absolute gem that song and yet at the
time The Triffids were the uncoolest band in the Perth 'Punk scene.
Go Figure? It's a blessing those songs have at least made it to CD
