About this item

Domino are honoured to announce the release of the second instalment of the anthology series documenting The Go-Betweens, one of the most beloved and influential Australian groups of all-time.

The Go-Betweens were formed by Robert Forster and Grant McLennan in Brisbane, Australia in 1978 while studying at the University of Queensland. Augmented by various drummers and guests, they recorded a series of acclaimed singles and eventually were joined by drummer Lindy Morrison.

After making a pair of seminal albums for Rough Trade (‘Send Me A Lullaby’ and ‘Before Hollywood’), the trio became a quartet, adding Robert Vickers on bass. ‘G Stands For Go-Betweens’ volume 2 picks up the story from there, documenting the group’s middle period.

Three CDs and one double CD of rare, hard-to-find and unreleased demos, recordings and radio sessions.

The vinyl portion of the box set includes three studio albums from the group’s august period on Beggars Banquet, plus a previously unreleased live double album from May 1987. Digital download card included.

120-page book featuring a trove of archival photos and extensive historical liner notes from founding member Robert Forster, plus additional pieces from guest essayists, fans and contemporaries and ‘Liberty Belle And The Black Diamond Express’ songbook.
