The Triffids: ICA, London

Roy Wilkinson, Sounds, 2 May 1987

OF THE trio of bands lumped together in the ICA's Desert Island Risks series, Australia's Triffids, casters of many a desert bound, flat horizoned vignette, seemed the only one who could possibly fit in with the Roy Plumley... sorry, Michael Parkinson derived title. Odd then to see them forsaking their beautifully paced sense of dimension for most of the evening.
