COMMENTS: This cassette was only sold at the Triffids Perth shows on December 19 and 20, 1988. The sleeve notes mention "ninety minutes of rare (and under cooked) snippets of tunes allegedly attributed to the Triffids. Beware of wildly fluctuating recording and performing quality". Only 50 original copies were released. I did some work to balance out the sound since the volume fluctuated a lot between tracks.

COMMENTS: Tracks 7-12 were not broadcast and were mp3 sourced from The Triffids official homepage. As Graham Lee explains: "On 14/03/94 The Red Ponies (Dave McComb, Warren Ellis, Graham Lee, Bruce Haymes, Peter Luscombe and Michael Vidale) played a live session for Triple J radio. When the official tracks were done we cajoled Chris Thompson the engineer/producer into letting us play some more songs for the hell of it what with a Euro tour coming up soon. Here are three tracks from that session. I'd completely forgotten about this stuff until I found it on a cassette yesterday. Listening to it made me wonder what might have happened had Dave stayed healthy and kept this band together.
I think Warren turned up late because of other commitments as he only seems to be on Raining Pleasure. Actually, on second thoughts he must have had to leave early as this was a bit of a late one.
The version(s) of Everything Fixed Is Killed are presented here as an example of an early working version of a song that later appeared in a dramatic and more complete incarnation done by costar. There are two versions, the first one falls away after a promising start and we do another straight away that's much better as a whole. We (the Red Ponies) never did this song in live performance as far as I recall."
