DAVID McCOMB OF THE TRIFFIDS, INTERVIEWED (1994): Here  . . . and gone too soon

When there is time, Elsewhere will be sourcing a rich vein of its archival material which was published in various places during the Eighties and Nineties which are not available on-line.

These will most often be reproduced as they appeared in print. Some may be a little fuzzy in the reproduction but we think the story or interview are worth it for researchers or fans.

Best read on a desktop or iPad than a phone.

This interview with the extraordinary David McComb of Australian band the Triffids. He died five years after this interview and has been the subject of an excellent documentary Love in Bright Landscapes which turns up on arts channels.
