AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When David McComb died in 1999 at the age of 36, he left behind an extraordinary body of work, notably the songs and albums he recorded with Australian post-punk group The Triffids. The fact that McComb also wrote poetry from an early age - much of it collected here for the first time - will come as no surprise to admirers of the songwriter's powerfully evocative lyrics.

Introduced by fellow Western Australian writer John Kinsella, the poems in this book will delight fans of popular music and contemporary poetry alike. Beautiful Waste illuminates a hitherto neglected aspect of McComb's brilliance.' (Publisher's blurb)
