From CMU “A new tribute album to influential Brisbane indie rockers The Go-Betweens has been announced, and it’s set to feature contributions from Australian artists such as Dan Kelly, Sarah Blasko and Glenn Richards. ‘Write Your Adventures Down’ will get an Australian release via SonyBMG imprint The Red Label in June – no word yet on a UK release.
As I’m sure you all remember, because you’re all very old, the duo of Robert Forster and Grant McLennan’s main period of activity ran from 1977 to 1989 and was adored by critics, but didn’t impact hugely on the public. They reunited in 2000 and won an ARIA award for their final album ‘Oceans Apart‘, released in 2005. McLennan, as previously reported, died last year from a heart attack.”
