Does anyone remember the Triffids?


Recommended Posts

Thought you were on about the film tbh.

It was a book first.

So that's a no?

That was 'The Day of the Triffids' smartarse :razz: By John Wyndham who also wrote 'Chocky'. Two classic tv series I remember from when I was a bairn too.

Wasn't the film "Day of the Triffids" anarl?

I have to say the book and film came first, then the band (the Triffids were a 1980s Australian rock band ), then the TV series.

I have been trying to think of some songs by them and by colleague has been singing one called "Bury Me Deep In Love" but it didn't ring any bells!

 

I had nightmares about the Triffid's TV show!

So besides super7 no-one remembers the triffids?

And yes Bury me was probably their biggest hit, that album Calenture was their first on a major label.

Been listening to Born Sandy devotional.

 

Bear in mind in listenng to Robert Johnson now...

 

BSD has shite production but is still a good album :unsure:

Tom, it was 1985, everything had shite production.

It was produced by Gil Norton who produced a lot of Echo and the bunnymen's stuff and has worked with the foo fighters and maximo park (thought that might interest you).
