The Triffids’ later frontman David McComb had Nick Cave’s deep, impassioned vocals and Leonard Cohen’s poetic, insightful lyrics but neither quality compensated him with commercial success. Delivered on Feb 17, 1962, in Perth, Australia, McComb was the boy of a cosmetic surgeon and a geneticist. McComb began his initial group, Dalsy, in senior high school. Dalsy would ultimately end up being the Triffids. After graduating from senior high school, McComb went to Curtin College or university. In 1980, the Triffids’ initial single, “OPERATE,” made an appearance. A year afterwards, McComb shifted to Sydney, Australia, using the Triffids, launching their debut record, Treeless Basic. He documented five even more LPs using the Triffids, each acclaimed by critics but non-e of them releasing the music group into stardom, hence the Triffids split up in 1989. McComb after that joined up with the Blackeyed Susans while also attempting to determine himself like a single artist. He added a track towards the Leonard Cohen tribute recording I’m Your Lover in 1991. In 1994, McComb released his single debut, Like of Will. On a journey to NY, McComb became ill; he quickly came back to Australia and was consequently positioned on a waiting around list for center transplants. A donor was found out in 1995, and McComb underwent an effective procedure. On January 30, 1999, McComb was hospitalized after a vehicle accident; he passed on on Feb 2, 1999, while attempting to recuperate.
