Triffids - Reverie

This is the first EP by the Triffids. Contains an early version of Place in the sun, that would later appear on Treeless plain.

Thanks so much, great EP. Reverie is one of my favourite early Triffids tracks. For me, it's the best example of Dave's purposefully 'poppy' songs, like Stand Up.

What I've always loved about the band is hearing Dave trying to reconcile his obvious love for beautiful melody and catchiness (for the want of a better term) with his darker, more oblique side. It's that mix of humour with tragedy that makes the Triffids so wonderfully difficult.

I cannot be so eloquent about the Triffids because I am just discovering them, but I love what I've heard so far - and thanks to your colossal efforts, I have much more to look forward to. What a labor of love - thanks for all the time you have spent posting these rare tracks! - LD
