Sleeve notes: Ninety minutes of rare (under cooked) snippets of tunes allegedly attributed to the Triffids. Beware of wildly fluctuating recording and performing quality.

Sold at the Triffids Perth shows 19 and 20 December 1988 and limited to just 50 copies.

The cover lists 'Kathy Knows' as Track 8 on side A, but this has been partly covered by Tippex and the song does not feature on the actual tape.

The handle of the Swiss Army Knife on the cover has been hand coloured in red texta on each copy.

Of all the rare cassettes i own this is probably one of my all time favourites - it contains 26 classics and 2 slightly lame covers (Gilligan's Island & Mellow Yellow). Although the packaging warns of "wildly fluctuating recording and performing quality" it is generally of quite good to excellent quality throughout and I have not heard too many bum notes in the playing. (On my copy only a few songs have any significant distortion, hissing or static evident and the sound drops noticeably in volume midway through B4). A personal highlight is the lovely version of Lanallu - it starts with a female voice calling "Rolling..." to which Dave replies "Thanks Mum" (priceless!) The atmospheric live version of Rosevel is also another of many highlights - despite some minor sound quality issues this cassette is filled with great recordings of this amazing band.Please note that none of these recordings are included on Come Ride With Me and for the most part they are only available on this cassette. Only 50 copies were made apparently. Thank god i own it.
You're one lucky person! I hope that they will someday re-issue all of the tapes in a box set (like they did with the early singles), I'm sure that there are plenty of treastures on them that did not make it onto the "Wide Open Road" box set... Well, here's to hoping! Enjoy your tape meanwhile :-)
