Apparently, I am the first registered user, after Graham Lee. I'm very proud.

My favorite Triffids gig: december 4th, 1987. Zaal Lux, Herenthout, Belgium.

I was only 15 years old at the time. I was right in front of the stage. I don't remember much. Just the sense of being blown away.

Much like I was somewhere in 1986 when I was switching channels on my television set. It was late at night, one channel had switched to a test image and a radio channel. They played Wide Open Road. I sat there transfixed. That was a saturday, I bought the album on monday.

 I also have a clear image of David McComb pacing up and down the stage  during Lonely Stretch, that day in 1987. He was very impressive.

The Triffids are just about the only act that I know of, that were really, really great and yet today are largely ignored. This is an injustice. Perhaps the upcoming Bleddyn Butcher book can help to put things right.

Not that anything can really put things right, obviously.

mmm....it might be a bit lonely in here until a few people join you, but thanks for the memory - I'm trying to remember the gig myself.
