New Go-Betweens memoir by Forster out soon. Looks ace. Extract here:
I was too young to see The Go-Betweens the first time around. I saw them four or five times after the reformed and saw Robert Forster last year and earlier on this year. Had a chance to get my CD signed and a quick hello at Robert Forster's Bush Hall gig last year; really nice bloke. One of the best bands ever.
Hearing that he was an arsehole would've been hugely disappointing. They both always came over as being nice blokes didn't they.
The extract is as ace as you would expect
Love Rob's writing style - can't wait to have more time to read it
interesting that there are no photos - but i guess there is already plenty of them around
I can't find it anywhere - no reference to it on Amazon, Waterstones or the Penguin website.
you can get it from book depository
Free worldwide delivery too.
but very bittersweet
always tough hearing him talking of Grant in past tense - and of course it's his opinion and feelings of Grant; one-sided view as it is
might read this next
