Somewhere I’m afraid that all my musical heroes are dead. Okay, David Bowie and Mark Burgess are still around, but the list of heroes who took the stairway to heaven is endless. David McComb is just another one. The artist died at a very young age on 2nd February 1999. He was the key member of Australia’s finest. And no, that’s not Midnight Oil, but The Triffids. Ironically enough Belgium and Holland were the only countries that lend an ear to their beauty.

Most fans will say that Born Sandy Devotional is their best, and that’s true but I choose the anthology Love In Bright Landscapes, just because it features the best song ever written by them : Hell Of A Summer. People will never ask me, but if they do and want to know which song I would like to have written (mind you, I never wrote one) then this must be this one. A haunting melody, even kind of poppy, a coldwave guitar and a melancholy that makes you burst into tears.


The other 9 tracks are of course genius either, otherwise I wouldn’t made this release a classic! They were all taken from previous albums like "Raining Pleasure" “Treeless Plain” and some EP’S.
If you never heard The Triffids in your life, do me a favour and click on the clip below….you’ll be amazed!
