TRUCKLOAD OF SKY – THE LOST SONGS OF DAVID McCOMB

Over the past couple of years some friends of David McComb (lead singer and songwriter from acclaimed Australian band, The Triffids) have been bringing to life a treasure trove of 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. It will be released on 17th February 2020 which would have been David’s 58th birthday.
