The Go-Betweens//Cattle and Cane

A few years ago, I went to visit some very dear friends in Chicago. They were both obsessed with this unfamiliar late 70s Australian post punkish band called The Go-Betweens. We drove around a lot listening to them and I was instantly hooked.

The sound and songs remind me a bit of The Smiths, but they’re a little less simpering than the usual Morrissey fare (not that I don’t love The Smiths—don’t get me wrong).

Cattle and Cane is probably my favorite on this not-a-bad-song-on-it retrospective, which I would highly recommend that you pick up.
