The Australian Mood: Jonathan Alley joins Neil Rogers To Take Us On A Musical Journey With The Triffids

Triple R legend and former Under The Sun presenter Jonathan Alley delves into the deep-cuts of The Triffids and how they’ve shaped his new documentary about the band and its charismatic lead singer David McComb.

“They immediately struck me as a completely atypical band for everything I was seeing coming out of Australia,” he tells Neil Rodgers.

From interviewing David McComb as a 23-year old in 1994 to reading his intimate letters years later, Alley talks through the journey that led to making Love in Bright Landscapes.
