5.0 out of 5 stars Bask in the Sun 21 Feb 2006
Format:DVD
Anyone expecting guitar pyrotechnics, scissor-kicks and stage-diving is probably on the wrong page. The Go-Betweens have always offered something quite marvellous and subtle to fans of heartfelt, lyrical pop music and this DVD is entirely in keeping with the rest of their ouevre.
The first half features the current 4-piece line-up playing a simple, no-nonsense show in their home town of Brisbane. The sound is good and the band sound as sympathetic to the songs as any line-up since the halcyon days of the mid-80's. There are moments early on when I wished for a more intimate vibe - the band seem rather detached until a scorching version of 'Draining the Pool for You' kicks in - but, by the time Robert Forster rasps out the final refrain of 'Karen', you know that you've witnessed something special.
The intimacy is provided in spades during the second feature; an acoustic strum through key career moments with Robert and Grant chatting around each song. This is far more enticing than it might have been - the songs stand up so well that you forgive the odd wayward high note (too many Gitanes, Grant!) and revel in the small details. Robert Forster has possibly the best way with a raised eyebrow in pop history.
Taken together, the two sections of this DVD make an excellent pairing - you get the Go-Betweens at their most electric and their most laid-back (and they even throw-in a CD of the full-band set) but it stil left me wanting more. There are many more jewels in the Go-Betweens back catalogue that could shine just as brightly in this format: 'Love is a Sign', 'Apology Accepted', 'Darlinghurst Nights'...the list goes on. Personally, I could do with a volume 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than a bunch of songs 24 July 2006
Format:DVD
I've been watching this DVD continuously for the last few days, much of the time with tears streaming down my face, for obvious reasons. It's a DVD all about ships, really - relationship, craftsmanship, musicianship, friendship: the empathy between Forster and McLennan, particularly in the Acoustic Stories section where they chat about, joke about and discuss the history of their partnership, is utterly compelling and terribly moving, their guitar and vocal interplay through a succession of marvellous songs quite simply one of the most enriching musical and lyrical experiences I have ever been privileged to watch. The dynamic of their rapport, which of course also permeates the songs, is that electric contrast between tall, laconic, ironic Forster - bearing a startling resemblance to Peter Cook now - and the slighter, gentler, more romantic McLennan - but it's the fusion of these qualities that really comes across in these performances: play Too Much of One Thing, Dive for Your Memory, Finding You, watch their smiles and glances as they play off and through each other, listen to the delicacy of the guitar work, hear a real dialogue between two great songwriters, two fascinating men; witness a marvellous relationship full of love and respect. Sit back after a song like Forster does, with a huge sigh of "Beautiful!" Truly.
