Grant & I: Inside and Outside the Go-Betweens [9781785589683]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
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.
