Go-Betweens stars to release joint solo Best Ofs

Grant McLennan named the compilation before his death

The last album Go-Betweens star Grant McLennan put together before his shock death in 2006 is to be released next month.

‘Intermission’, a compilation featuring the best solo recordings from McLennan and his Go-Betweens partner Robert Forster, will be out on June 18.

The two CD anthology is made up of tracks the duo recorded as solo artists in between the band’s initial split in 1989 and their reformation in 2000.
