"McComb's life is an enthralling story of an indomitable figure . . . a compelling read that throws light on many unknown aspects of David McComb . . . his influence is still felt strongly." The West Australian
"To finally get to read a book about [David McComb and The Triffids] is, for a fan, a much-needed means of assuaging the grief . . . this is no narrative, chronological bio . . . the format serves the subject nicely . . . both band and man live again." Blurt Magazine online
