Description

Over the past couple of years some friends of David McComb, have been bringing to life various superb songs from his pen. These are songs that were never recorded, 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. For the first time ever in WA, an incredibly special ensemble of David’s musical friends will bring these unearthed songs alive at Fremantle Arts Centre.

The songs are 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 and 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. They all got to know him a little better in the process.

The record, released on 15 February on what would have been David’s 58th birthday, contains eight brilliant, fresh songs sung by singers who interpret them in utterly convincing fashion.

To celebrate the release, shows will be played around the country featuring most of the folk who appear on the record. The band is Evil Graham Lee and Rob McComb (from the Triffids), Phil Kakulas, J.P. Shilo and Clare Moore (from the Blackeyed Susans, Dave Graney, Hungry Ghosts) and Dan Luscombe, famed Melbourne musician who’s played with more names than he can remember. Singers are Rob Snarski (Blackeyed Susans), Alex Gow (Oh Mercy), Angie Hart (Frente) and the previously mentioned J P Shilo. On the night, special guests will be joining us too.

Expect all the unearthed songs along with a helping of better known Triffids songs. Just as these fine musicians’ have done in recording the album, the audience will get to know David just a little better.
