The Triffids - Stand Up


On this date in 1981, The Triffids released their debut single, "Stand Up". It was backed by "Farmers Never Visit Nightclubs". Neither track appeared on a regular album. The Perth, Australia post punk band was pretty prolific in their recordings though some of their earlier material was initially only available for purchase at their shows. They disbanded in 1989 but have gotten together occasionally since, especially as a tribute to their deceased former singer/songwriter David McComb.
