In The Pines

In The Pines is an album by The Triffids, released in August 1986 and reached No. 69 on the Australian Album Charts.[1]

The album was produced by Bruce Callaway and David McComb,[2] recorded in a woolshed on a remote Western Australian farming property, owned by the McCombs' parents, on an eight-track machine for a grand total of $1190 (the album notes that $340 of this was spent on alcohol (beer, wine and vodka), superseding the bill for food of $310 and also the $300 for recording equipment hire and $240 for petrol.

"It was just an idea that had been kicking around for some time. We had some time to do it and it was something that didn’t involve a huge effort to do. If it didn’t work, it didn’t work. It didn’t matter. It was something of a holiday really. At the very least we would have had a chance to play the songs and if it didn't work out have demoed some songs for the next album. It was just something that we did and which turned out to be releasable." - Graham Lee

The reissue by Domino Records released in February 2007 included three additional songs that had previously been held over for Calenture: "Trick Of The Light", "Blinder By The Hour" and "Jerdacuttup Man". It also included two other songs that were not on the original edition: "She's Sure The Girl I Love" and "Wish to See No More". The previous version of "Born Sandy Devotional" is expanded. The reissue was remixed by Bruce Callaway, the sound engineer of the original recordings.
