Robert Forster


Robert Forster has announced some dates for His upcoming tour
on his web site
When He plays in London in September it will be the first gig for
18 months, since returning to performing, that He has played
outside of Brisbane. So great news.
I look forward to the 15th of August here at the Powerhouse again.
The band consists of remaining Go-Betweens
and long-time collaborators bassist
Adele Pickvance and drummer Glenn Thompson.
I've included a clip from the
4 Age's gigs last year if your wondering what the gigs will
sound like, but really its a lot like the Go-betweens without
Grant

Hey Bob

I went blogger legit!

Just working on same early Go Betweens tape transfers I did a few years ago and wondered if you want them yourself.

They are the Five New Songs tape from 1980, 3 live tracks and an interview from 3PBS from 1981 and a 30 minute 4ZZZ interview from 1979.
