Everything Indie Over 40 is currently running a poll at weekends on Twitter to determine the “definitive” Indie compilation album of the 80s. Which is probably both good fun and a ridiculous thing to attempt!

The third installment of the Triffids 21st century shows happens next month with a couple of dates next month – an appearance at Lotterywest Festival Opening: Home on February 13 and a sold out appearance at the Perth International Arts Festival on the 15th.
