Grant McLennan and Robert Forster.

The Go Betweens broke up at the end of the 80s. The band wasn’t making enough money for its members to reproduce themselves.  Forster and McLennan embarked on solo careers and the former moved to Germany. During a few of the times their paths crossed in the 90s,  Forster and McLennan got together and played shows as Grant & Robert. At these shows they played Go Betweens songs and collaborated on songs from their solo albums. I’d only read about these shows before. But some good egg has posted footage from some of them – including an entire show from Brisbane in 1996 – on the internets.
