Release Info: The Triffids-Peel Sessions
I think it might have been in Mojo that I read these guys described as looking like you neighbors but sounding like psychos. Check the mugs then listen to the tunes and it makes sense. Really, "Life of Crime" is impossibly essential if you're anything like me and have an aching romantic streak to go on a blunderbuss of violence and lust. Jeez, how the hell did my favorite song type become the songs of killing sprees and intolerable love? Am I the only person out there who finds this shit just too romantic and the perfect escape from the tedium of it all? Hmm...I used to wonder why I was single, I think I have my answer. All that aside, it's a fucking perfect song. Don't let my own psychotic fantasies ruin it for you.
