#606 The Triffids – Calenture

The Triffids are an Australian alternative folk rock band. At least I think that is the best way to describe this band. Calenture is their fourth album. The lead singer and wordsmith David McComb died in 1999 due to heroin toxicity and mild acute rejection of his 1996 heart transplant”. I have never heard of this group.

After listening to the album, I am a bit dumbfounded. How did this album make the list? This does not sound like anything you should listen to at all. It sounds dated even for 1987. I understand McComb lyrics are something to admire, but the music and the vocals are nothing unique nor special. 5/10.
