Truckload of Sky celebrates the the Lost Songs of Triffids founder, frontman and songwriter, David McComb.

We all know the classics The Triffids left us from their 6 brilliant albums however only David’s closest friends know of the backlog of songs that were left unwritten before his untimely death in 1999.

Over the past couple of years some friends of David’s have been bringing to life a treasure trove of these superb songs from his pen.  These are songs that were not recorded, most not yet written, during the Triffids’ span in the 70s and 80s, rather they were written in Melbourne and London in the 90s and never properly recorded for various reasons. They’re not cast-offs, it’s more a case of time running out for their writer, sadly.

They were recorded over a couple of summers by an assemblage of musicians who have good reason to believe they could do them the sort of justice they deserve. Members of the Triffids, the Blackeyed Susans, people who had shared a stage and other delights with the man himself along with musicians who knew him and loved him through his music. We all got to know him a little better in the process.

The record contains eight brilliant, fresh songs sung by singers who interpret them in utterly convincing fashion and was released in early 2020.

Feauturing Evil Graham Lee and Rob McComb (from the Triffids), Phil Kakulas, J.P. Shilo and Mark Dawson (from the Blackeyed Susans, Ed Kuepper, Hungry Ghosts), Bruce Haymes famed Melbourne musician who’s played with more names than he can remember plus singers are Rob Snarski (Blackeyed Susans), Alex Gow (Oh Mercy), Angie Hart (Frente), Romy Vager (RVG) and the previously mentioned J P Shilo.

Expect all the unearthed songs along with a helping of better known Triffids songs.

Just as we did, the audience will get to know David just a little better.
