Ihre 5te Single (1986) dürfte zu ihren bekanntesten zählen; Eine schöne #26 in UK.

Expresses the quintessential heartbreak of waking up alone after the love of your life has left you for someone else. Do you plot revenge? Or do you just die? No you head out the door along that wide open road.<br><br>This song pulses along to the beat of an Australia that had turned their back on The Triffids. Much to the shame of my own nation, they were barely acknowledged here (#64 on singles charts in 1986), so David McComb's band tried their luck in Europe with slightly more success.<br><br>The road referred to is that section of highway between Caiguna and Norseman on the Nullarbor plain where The Triffids van would collide with kangaroos. They had to drive for countless hours between Perth in Western Australia and the other capital cities trying to get their songs heard but to no great success.

▒ Een béétje saai gezongen, maar verder best wel mooie muziek van de Australische rockformatie "The Triffids", uit 1986 !!! Krap 3 sterren ☺!!!

Peaked at #64 in Australia, 1986.

Endlich mal ein Song, der dem (unverständlicherweise)<br>legendären Ruf des Albums gerecht zu werden vermag....<br><br>Ganz knappe 5.<br><br>(4.75)

Scheint seine Fans zu haben, ich würde diesen Song jedoch höchsten als solide bezeichnen. -4*

Oddly, this seems like a song with therapeutic qualities. In this large wide land that is Australia, there is always a wide, open road to be found.<br>The most recognisable song from the band for me.<br>
****
<br>Ihr grösster UK Hit der mir auch gut gefällt.

Nice enough
