Save What You Can + Steve Keene

Following the deluxe edition release of Born Sandy Devotional, the Triffids get the royal reissue treatment once again this January when Domino Records releases their 1987 masterpiece, Calenture. The Aussie pop group, which featured future Bad Seed Martyn P. Casey, was one of the few alternative acts that really didn't get their due in America. But their haunting country/blues mixture was beautiful, and albums like Born Sandy Devotional, Calenture, and In the Pines (which is also being reissued in January) deserve a second chance, so bravo to Domino for introducing the Triffids to a new generation.

Get your fix with the video for "Save What You Can." Featuring New York pop art painter Steve Keene, the video was directed by Braden King, and filmed at Keene's Brooklyn studio in August 2006.

The video also features a blip of Keene's plywood nativity scene, which can be found here.
