G.W. McLennan, 1958-2006


To lose a great songwriter at the relatively young age of 48 is simply not fair. J helpfully points to this tribute post at Moistworks by Franklin Bruno, and there's this piece by Steve Kilbey from the Church, who, with McLennan, made up the larkish Superduo Jack Frost. I don't have much to add except that a Go-Betweens soundtrack makes marking this unfortunate news even sadder.

The Go-Betweens - Cattle and Cane
Buy it.
Watch it.

The Go-Betweens - Streets of Your Town
Buy it.
Watch it.

G.W. McLennan - Lighting Fires
Buy it.

Jack Frost - Ramble
Buy it.
