Calenture (CD, Album). Island Records, Island Records. Here is an overview of all the extras found on this Domino remastered, extended 2 CD release of Calenture: On Disc 1 (Tracks 13 - 17) are all the B sides from the singles taken off the LP (both the 7" and 12") To be honest these are not the best Triffids flip sides going around, but they are decent enough.
The Triffids were never labeled as a Christian band, but there's an undeniably spiritual feel to several of the songs on Calenture. Moreover, vocalist David McComb spews his words with the fiery passion of a backwoods preacher. The orchestral sweep of "Bury Me Deep in Love" recalls the Waterboys' expansive sound; the lyrics are unmistakably religious as McComb looks for salvation in a chapel.
