Boomkat Product Review:
The first in a series of re-issues by Domino, 'Born Sandy Devotional' is the most acclaimed of all the Triffids catalogue. Originally released in 1986, it quickly caught the attention of NME and Melody Maker getting the band cover features, and apparently the album ended up rather highly placed on the end of year charts that year. Listening to the record now it has aged very nicely, still sounding fresh and punchy, and Domino have been kind enough to bolster the original 10 tracks with 9 bonuses, which are equally engaging (if less coherent). There will be many of you who have been waiting very patiently for this deluxe re-issue, and for those of you that haven't heard this influential band before, maybe it's time you welcomed the Triffids into your life.
