Remembering Grant McLennan

Posted: May 8, 2011 in Stuff


UPDATED
Thanks for the feedback and comments over the last few weeks about this show. Amazing legacy left by Grant McLennan. George Byrne recommended “Intermission” as a great compilation of Grant and Robert’s solo output. It’s a two disc affair – one from each of the boys – and might appeal to those who made fantasy Go-Betweens tapes from the solo periods.

Also worth checking out is a Great Australian Albums programme on 16 Lover’s Lane. The show seems to be an Antipodean Classic Albums type thing and a DVD of the one dedicated to this lp is a must for anyone who likes the record. It was my starting point after I blindly played I’m Alright on side 2 of the record which I’d borrowed from a radio station library. What goes around comes around. The record was stolen in a burglary a few months later. Wonder what those brigands made of Love Goes On and Dive for your Memory? Hope they liked it and went on to investigate further, through more orthodox means.
