That is such a shit hot album. I never found they lived up to it again but they did churn out some good songs.

Bizarrely though, they always released the absolute worst songs off their albums as singles. Used to piss me right off.

But my fave off Tu-Plang:

And TISM were the best. Brilliant. Great Trucking Songs of the Renaissance is one of my favourite albums.

Do you remember when Flea from the RHCPs lost his mind completely over that? Went on JJJ absolutely fuming.

It was very funny.

I don't think i've seen that interview, He was probably out of it.

Not an interview as such but the world is a better place for having this in it:

Can't understand the lyrics other than....."It's a wide open road."

Wide Open Road
The Triffids
Well, the drums rolled off in my forehead
And the guns went off in my chest
Remember carrying the baby just for you
Crying in the wilderness
I lost track of my friends, I lost my kin
I cut them off as limbs
I drove out over the flatland
Hunting down you and him
The sky was big and empty
My chest filled to explode
I yelled my insides out at the sun
At the wide open road
It's a wide open road
It's a wide open road
So, how do you think it feels
Sleeping by yourself?
When the one you love, the one you love
Is with someone else
Then it's a wide open road
It's a wide open road
And now you can go to any place
That you want to go
I wake up in the morning
Thinking I'm still by your side
I reach out just to touch you
Then I realize
It's a wide open road
It's a wide open road
So, how do you think it feels
When sleeping by yourself?
When the one you love, the one you love
Is with someone else
I wake up in the morning
Thinking I'm still by your side (it's a wide open road)
I reach out just to touch you (it's a wide open road )
(Then I realize) it's a wide open road
It's a wide open road
It's a wide open road
It's a wide open road
It's a wide open road
It's a wide open road
It's a wide open road
It's a wide open road
It's a wide open road
It's a wide open road
It's a wide open road
And now you can go to any place
That you want to go

Without doubt, one of the greatest Australian songs ever written, that one.

It's been on every touring mix i've ever made.

This song just makes me weep. Aussie, if you say she's "swallowing the mike", i'll utterly give up on you as an unsalvageable relic:
