Far Out Corporation - Far Out Corporation

A request from Matt.

Far Out Corporation was a band led by late singer-guitarist
Grant McLennan, mostly known as a singer, songwriter
and guitarist for the Go-Betweens. McLennan started the
group with Ross McLennan on drums, Dave Graney's bass player
Adele Pickvance and Powderfinger's guitarist Ian Haug.
The band was formed as a side project for all its members
other than Ross McLennan, as they all were members of
larger rock bands than Far Out Corporation.
The group's name is a reference to the rock supergroup
Far Corporation, which was also comprised of various
musicians. In 1998, the group recorded their first and
only album, which was named FOC after the initials of
the band's name.In late 1999, McLennan's old band
The Go-Betweens unexpectedly reformed.

Track List
01 Don't Blame The Beam
02 Hold
03 Sick Bed
04 Montreal
05 Shadow Overload
06 If You Want Release
07 Sketch
08 The Shower Song

I just discovered your fantastic blog thanks to the links on Twilight Zone. I'm in the process of retrieving a few things that I am really looking forward to hearing.

I do have one request, if it is at all possible. I have never seen anything by Voodoo Lust posted anywhere and I've totally loved anything I've ever heard by them, especially their fabulous single "Shake Shake Yeah Yeah". If you have it and can put it up I'd be grateful.

You and your visitors might also like my blog Time on My Hands. I take a slightly different approach than you do but I think you'll find that there is some overlap of musical tastes.

Ross McLennan is not related to Grant McLennan. You should correct this error.
