"Calenture: Tropical fever or delirium suffered by sailors after long periods away from land, who imagine the seas to be green fields and desire to leap into them"
"Calenture" by the Triffids is by far one of my favorite Australian albums. After months of searching through too many record shops i found an original copy in perfect condition, and i doubt it's been back on my shelf since. David McComb is a fantastic lyricist, and his voice is even more engaging. Super disappointed I'll never get to experience this live, but i would recommend this album to anyone, a truly great example of how good Australian music can be.
