Triffids - In The Pines

Thanks to bottlelow

In The Pines was recorded in April 1986 not long after Born Sandy Devotional was finally released in Australia. They went to a shearing shed in WA and spent five days recording on an 8 track machine. They stayed in the shearers' quarters, consumed shearers' rations of beer and sheep and made an album that surprised us all by becoming a favourite of many fans. While it represents Their equivalent of Dylan and The Band's Basement Tapes, it also served as a sketch book for their first major label release, Calenture.

Ooops, I´m becoming a fan. Is this the "outback sound"?

Cheers. Thank you.
