Ride On Black Mule ... RIP Grant McLennan

"Melodic, atmospheric, timeless ... it's a nice listen. Produced by Dave Dobbyn.

8 May, 2006: Grant McLennan, singer-songwriter with legendary Australian group the Go-Betweens, has died in Australia. He was 48.

McLennan died in his sleep at his home in Brisbane. It is thought that he suffered a heart attack.

Quirky, hummable pop

"I can't believe this disc is 10 years old! It seems like just yesterday that I bought it. I love Grant McLennan's songwriting style. In his songs he juxtaposes words and images in a very unique, almost cinematic way. His music is straightforward and vibrantly produced and played. I picture him as a perpetually disappointed romantic, but without the dark edges of a total cynic.I loved this album from the moment I bought it, and it is still a desert island disc. His other solo albums are also excellent.Some day I'd like to ask him why he's wearing a SF 49ers cap on the album cover!"
Stunningly Good!

"I was never what you could call a huge Go-Betweens fan. A greatest hits disc did me just fine because each of their albums seemed to have about two songs that I really liked. The rest seemed like passable filler. I figured the same would apply for the Go-Between's frontman Grant McLennan's solo material. I got a copy of Horsebreaker Star and was pleasantly surprised to like quite a few songs there. Then I got this disc, Watershed, and was blown away! Hardly anyone knows this album exists which is a huge shame. There really isn't a bad song on it while several are stunning. "When Word Gets Around", "Easy Come Easy Go", "Putting the Wheels Back On", and "Sally's Revolution" should have gotten plenty of radio airplay if most American radio stations had any sense for fun, quality music.The bottom line: BUY THIS DISC no matter how much or how little you know about GM or the Go-Betweens! It really is a fine disc with Grant's guitar and intelligent songwriting making this a great (and often quite amusing) body of work."
