Triffids Stockholm


By request, the OOP live album Stockholm. All songs recorded live in Stockholm for The Bommen Show on Swedish National Radio in 1989. I ripped this from my CD. Maybe not the perfect live album (we're waiting what Domino records will have to offer) but still very good of course. Enjoy.

1. Property Is Condemned
2. Hell of a Summer
3. Personal Things
4. Raining Pleasure
5. Lonely Stretch
6. Sure the Girl I Love
7. Wide Open Road
8. Keep Your Eyes on the Hole
9. In the Pines
10. Billy
11. I Am a Lonesome Hobo
12. How Could I Help But Love You ?

Thanks so much for this goldmine blog! As a long time Triffids fan, it's amazing to find this place!

Regarding the Stockholm album, it's worth mentioning that although it was recorded live it wasn't in front of an audience. The Triffids were a favourite band with the Bommen show (which ran for many years offering the Swedish radio listeners alternative music that otherwise had no radio space). Dave McComb took the tapes to Australia, played the session over a PA during a special party for the audience to react to the recordings. So the audience cheers are real appreciation for the music, albeit not recorded at the same time as the music!

Also, McComb never had the permission to bring the tapes to Australia, and upon the altering of the original recordings, it spawned some time of bad feelings between the Bommen radio host and McComb. However, I think it straightened out before McComb's tragic death.
