Brilliant songwriter and lead singer of the Triffids, David McComb died in 1999 leaving behind a legacy of evocative music. Always more than a pop musician, McComb was a perceptive poet who explored and confronted addiction, pop culture, the colloquial and the metaphysical.

Collected and published for the first time, this is the poetry McComb wrote during his 20s and 30s when the Triffids’ musical output was at its height.

Introduced by renowned poet John Kinsella, the poems will delight fans of popular music and contemporary poetry alike. Beautiful Waste illuminates a hitherto neglected aspect of McComb’s creative brilliance.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘You get the feeling he could hate and love to excess, but his poetry melds these extremes …’ John Kinsella
