The second Go-Betweens Box Set 'G Stands For Go-Betweens: Volume 2 – 1985 -1989' will be released December 6th

Domino are honoured to announce the upcoming release of the second installment of the anthology series documenting The Go-Betweens, one of the most beloved and influential Australian groups of all-time. G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume 2 extensively documents the band’s creative output in the latter half of the Eighties in an ambitious box containing five vinyl LPs, five compact discs and an extensive 112-page book, featuring a trove of archival photos and extensive historical liner notes from founding member Robert Forster, along with additional pieces from guest essayists, fans and contemporaries.


The box set - set for release on Dec 6th - captures the band’s output from 1985 through 1989 and includes the first vinyl re-pressings of the three mid-period studio albums in over thirty years (Liberty Belle And The Black Diamond Express, Tallulah & 16 Lovers Lane), all re-mastered from the original analogue tapes. G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume 2 also includes an eighteen-song double LP of the band performing live at London’s legendary Town & Country Club on May 10th, 1987, on the cusp of the release of Tallulah. Additionally, the set comes with five compact discs of their b-sides, radio sessions & rare, hard-to-find and unreleased demos, including a collection of 28 demos that McLennan and Forster recorded with old ally Tony Cohen, intended for what was supposed to be the group’s seventh album before the band’s split at the end of the Eighties.  Though some of these songs would materialize on solo albums soon after, this will mark the first official release for many of these rare gems.

The Go-Betweens were formed by Robert Forster and Grant McLennan in Brisbane, Australia in 1978 while studying at the University of Queensland. Augmented by various drummers and guests, they recorded a series of acclaimed singles and eventually were joined by drummer Lindy Morrison.  After making a pair of seminal albums for Rough Trade (Send Me A Lullaby & Before Hollywood), the trio became a quartet, adding Robert Vickers on bass.

In the time since the release of the last box set, Forster wrote Grant & I, a moving memoir that explores both their musical partnership and their lasting friendship.  The Weekend Australia said of the book “‘[A] beautifully documented account . . . The heart of Forster’s story is deeper and more poetically drawn than simple band autobiography, however. It’s the unveiling of a friendship, a partnership, even a love affair, of sorts, that ended in tragic circumstances” and both Mojo and Uncut magazines honored Grant & I as their book of the year.  In addition, 2017 saw the cinematic release of Right Here, filmmaker Kriv Stenders’ documentary about the group, which The Guardian gave four stars, opining that “Stenders has made an emotional, rolling thunder of a film, one this extraordinary band deserves.”  Lastly, Robert released his seventh solo album, Inferno, this year to wide acclaim and his greatest solo chart success in this young century.  Forster will be touring throughout the year in support of Inferno, including his first US tour dates since 2008:
