AUDIO: The Go-Betweens' Robert Forster (1988)

Martin Aston, Rock's Backpages audio, March 1988

The Go-Betweens' co-frontman talks about the band's return to their native Australia: the contrasts between London and Sydney or Brisbane; the lack of a particularly Australian music; his dislike of London's Soho/Face mafia; the new album 16 Lovers Lane; the Australian fear of indulgence and artiness, and thinking of hemispheres rather than nations.
