I have posted solo tunes by Robert Forster and Grant McLennan but until now I've never posted a song by their band The Go-Betweens. These two men and their group have, over the years, become some of my most cherished artists. I sorely miss McLennan, who died in 2006. Forster just released Songs to Play, his first album in seven years. Cattle and Cane is a McLennan composition that first appeared on the band's 1983 sophomore album Before Hollywood. It went on to be named in 2001 by the Australasian Performing Right Association as one of the 30 most significant Australian songs of the last 75 years. This is a strangely specific award but reflects the song's value and importance. It is one of my favorite songs about memory. I am sad that This Is My Jam will soon be a memory and I give thanks and warm regards to everyone with whom I bantered on this site, and for all of the great music I learned about from you. Thank you, friends.
