Band: THE TRIFFIDS
Who: Australian alt-rock band formed in 1978 by singer/songwriter
David McComb, his brother Robert, and drummer Alsy MacDonald.
McComb‘s songs were influenced by the total bleakness of his rural
upbringing resulting in songs of solitude and yearning desire.
McComb‘s life already ended at the age of 36 (on 2 February 1999), due
to heroin toxicity and complications following his 1996 heart transplant.
1983: Treeless Pain
1986: Born Sandy Devotional
1986: In The Pines
1989: The Black Swan
