On a Saturday afternoon in May 2006, while preparing a housewarming party, singer/songwriter Grant McClennan died of a heart attack. He was 48 years old. His tragic death also brought an end to one of Australia’s greatest musical partnerships. Grant McClennan and Robert Forster, the founding members of seminal Brisbane band The Go-Betweens, had been close friends and collaborators for 30 years. Their body of work across countless group and solo albums is now recognised around the world as some of the greatest Australian music ever created. They are Australia’s own “Lennon and McCartney” and the legacy they and their band forged through the late 70s, 80s and into the 2000s has now become the stuff of rock music legend. RIGHT HERE - FINDING THE GO-BETWEENS  will be a deeply personal, impressionistic and heartfelt account of a friendship that survived and flourished for over three decades through countless successes, failures, romances, break-ups, traumas and triumphs, both professional and personal.
