Grant & I : Inside and Outside the Go-Betweens, Paperback Book

Grant & I : Inside and Outside the Go-Betweens Paperback

Description

BOOK OF THE YEAR 2017 - MOJO MAGAZINE & UNCUT MAGAZINE "In early '77 I asked Grant if he'd form a band with me. `No,' was his blunt reply." Grant McLennan didn't want to be in a band.

He couldn't play an instrument; Charlie Chaplin was his hero du jour. And yet, when Robert Forster wrote Hemingway, Genet, Chandler and Joyce into his lyrics, McLennan couldn't resist a second invitation to become 80s indie sensation The Go Betweens.

The friends would collaborate for three decades, until Grant's premature death in 2006.

Beautifully written - like lyrics, like prose - Grant & I is a rock memoir akin to no other.

Part `making of', part music industry expose, part buddy-book, this is a delicate and perceptive celebration of creative endeavour.

With wit and candour, Robert Forster pays tribute to a band who found huge success in the margins, having friendship at its heart.
