Stockholm is a live recording by Australian folk rock group, The Triffids, released in July 1990 and is the final official recording by the band.[1][2] All tracks were recorded live in Stockholm in 1989 for Swedish National Radio,[1] The Bommen Show. The album was produced by Lars Aldman,[2] engineered by Michael Bergek, and mixed at Planet Sound Studios, Perth on 15, 16 and 17 September 1989 by James Hewgill and David McComb.

The album was released after the Triffids officially disbanded in August, 1989 in order to fulfill the band's contractual obligations with Island Records. Island were not happy with the band using any material previously released under the label (i.e. Calenture or The Black Swan) as a result the recordings highlight the Triffids pre-Calenture era.
