The Triffids' David McComb

Toby Creswell, Juice, 1994

THE DAVID MCCOMB who left Perth with his band the Triffids was still a very young man. Even at those first gigs in the East, more than a decade ago, McComb's songs had wit, insight and genuine emotion, suggesting that the Triffids would go a long way.
