Grant McLennan passed away

Sad news: “On Saturday 6th May 2006, legendary Australian singer-songwriter and member of The Go-Betweens Grant McLennan died in his sleep at his home in Brisbane.”

At Beggars Banquet you can listen to his moving song Fingers.
I’m not that familiar with his solo work, but I’m very fond of classic Go-Betweens albums like Before Hollywood (Rough Trade, 1983). It has been reissued in 2004 as an ‘expanded edition’ in 2004 together with other albums of the group. A DVD with a concert of the band has also been released this year.
