Robert Forster,musician, songwriter, music critic for The Monthly and co-founder of the iconic indie rock group, The Go Betweens, is in conversation with Sasha Frere-Jones, the pop critic with The New Yorker at the Melbourne Writers Festival.
This is a prize eavesdrop: Frere-Jones loves Forster and The Go Betweens; Forster has a great openness and nerdiness and they both know a whole heap about music.
This plain boy from Brisbane who didnt even have a girlfriend when he was writing some of his best songs with Grant McLennan and wondering how he could compete with The Velvets Lou Reed, John Cale, Nico, heroin and sado masochism is an absolute treat in his deep brown suit and his long winding tale about meeting the woman of his dreams, actress Lee Remick.
