The Black Swan is the fifth and final LP from much-loved Australian post-punks The Triffids. Originally released in 1989, the band drafted in The Smiths’ producer extraordinaire Stephen Street to help them put together their most ambitious record. From the cover artwork it should be obvious that their songwriting style had moved towards the sort of gallows balladry Nick Cave was doing around the same time. The Triffids are good at it, too.
