The Triffids - A Secret In The Shape Of A Song. 17-04-10 Belgium

I recently found this fantastic recording on kakophonia
of one of the recent European shows of the Triffids and friends
tribute to David McComb.

Guest musicians and singers include
Rob Snarski, Mark Snarski, Mick Harvey, Melanie Oxley,
Warren Ellis, Julian Wu, Adrian Hoffman, Simon Breed,
Stef Kamil Carlens, Harald Vanherf, J.P. Shilo,
Chris Abrahams, Phil Kakulas, Mark Dawson.
Its a brillant recording and until this show comes
to Brisbane, it will do nicely.

I was googling The Triffids and I found this blog.
I would like to get the video with The Triffids singing "How could I help but love you".
I have looked for long time in internet but I can't find it.
Do you have this video?

Tania Soledad said...

Hi again:
Sorry if I am persistent!!! but honesty i have no idea how works blogger. I did leave you a comment in anywhere. I can't see it.
Anyway do you have the video "HOW COULD I HELP BUT I LOVE YOU" by The Triffids???
I would love get it!!!
I could send you videos from southamerican singer.. (Of course if you want it!)I think you were here because i see you wearing a "poncho" in the profile's pic.
It is nice and strange an Australian is interested in Latin America. Thank you for that!

Hi Tania, I'm sorry but I cant find a video for that song
and yes a have a had a long term attraction to Latin Americia. I have been twice and would go back in a heartbeat.
I've played in the odd Latin band back here and have some very good central american friends here.
