Robert Forster: Dancing About Architecture

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 didn’t 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. http://www.abc.net.au/tv/bigideas/stories/2012/10/22/3613737.htm
