The Triffids' debut album, Treeless Plain, released in November 1983, was critically acclaimed - described as a "magnificent, muscular piece of work that pounds out simple powerful rock songs - one of the best indie rock albums of its day" - but no singles were released from it. All tracks for Treeless Plain were recorded over twelve. In late August 1984, the band relocated to London, where Treeless Plain and Raining Pleasure had been issued by Rough Trade Records to positive critical reception. With little savings and five return plane tickets due to expire by Christmas, they gave themselves three months to make inroads in the UK. For their London debut they supported Rough Trade.

The Triffids' first single was released in 1981, but the band's full-length debut, Treeless Plain, didn't emerge until two years later. By then, the group had relocated from Perth to Sydney and solidified its lineup with the addition of Jill Birt (keyboards) and Martyn Casey (bass).

Treeless Plain is the debut album by The Triffids, released in November, 1983. The album was recorded at Emerald City Studios, Sydney, Australia in twelve midnight to dawn sessions, during August through to September 1983. It was the band's first release after signing with Hot Records. A remastered version of the album, with seven bonus live tracks recorded in 1983, was released in Australia in June 2008 through Liberation Music.

Originally recorded in a series of midnight to dawn sessions, 'Treeless Plain' has been re-mastered and wonderfully updated.
