"Any country that can except Jilted John,
X-ray Spex and the Only Ones,
there is a place for the Go-Betweens"
1979 Robert Foster
Lets start the new year up with a bit of Go-Betweens.
I was sent this recording from a not well represented
era of the Gob's. It was sent to me from Joe who's
a Gobs fan over in the UK. Thanks Joe
Joe's fav period of the band is its 3 piece period,
so if anyone got the postcard demos, which I
can't find, or anything interesting from the early
days, send a link in the comments or contact me
Here's what Joe says about the recording.
i'm afraid the recording quality is not amazing,
but it's still worth a listen -
i guess it's from the trip to scotland when the
band hooked up with postcard?
Could be Orange Juice's drummer on this!
By all accounts Joe's right, this is
a very interesting document. From
their first trip to the UK , a trip that
they had been well considering since 79.
Having seen the English scene as one
they where they would be able to make
1980.06. Bungalow Bar, Paisley, Scotland.
With Orange Juice, Josef K
