I remember when i saw the Triffids play thinking I'd
witnessed something very special, how special it
was however I only appreciate all these years later.
Often I'm disappointed by live recordings, they don't
capture the experience or the sound is less than
impressive. This recording is excellent, fantastic
sound, blistering performance and it even captures
that magic I saw those many years ago.
This recording is from the end of the Triffids career,
by the end of the year it would be over.
The only criticism I would make is its far too
short at 8 tracks, but they're 8 fine tracks.
01 - Too Hot To Move, Too Hot To Think
02 - A Trick Of The Light
03 - Goodbye Little Boy
04 - The Spinning Top Song
05 - Jerdacuttup Man
06 - Lonely Stretch
07 - Beginning To See The Light
08 - Fairytale Love
I live under glass in the British museum
I am wrinkled and black, I am ten thousand years
I once lost in business, I once lost in love
I took a hard fall, I couldn't get up
I was frozen out in the lean winter years
When the dollars were few and the faces were mean
I was frozen in business and frozen in love
I took a ten minute nap, man I never woke up
Old and lonely, dirty and cold
I'm a Jerdacuttup man
The Triffids - Jerdacuttup Man
