The Yin and Yang of the Go-Betweens

Steven R Rosen, LA CityBeat, 23 June 2005

LIVE, THE GO-BETWEENS may just be the most perfectly balanced rock band around. And it's nice to have a rare chance to witness it. Last Saturday night (June 18) at the Troubadour, the Go-Betweens played in L.A. as an electrified band - a quartet - for the first time in 16 years. The group's mainstays - Australian singer-songwriter/guitarists Robert Forster and Grant McLennan - were augmented by bassist Adele Pickvance and drummer Glenn Thompson, just as they are on their acclaimed new album, Oceans Apart.
