Despite loving the Go-betweens, until recently I'd never paid much attention to their solo work, and lo and behold, what a terrible mistake, since Warm Nights turns out to be a delicious slithering groove of a creature, a sinuous collection of heartfelt, glistening songs with Forster at the top of his form and a spare, delicate backing band where producer Edwyn Collins manages to slip just the right instrument in at just the right moment to make the impact perfect - the keyboard ripple on Snake Skin Lady, the Dylanesque organ on Rock and Roll Friend (a rich, warm heartbreaking version of this Forster/McLennan composition), the brass that slides in here and there. Hell, the disc is worth five stars just for the way Forster sings "People high on grass" on Snake Skin Lady, but the vocals throughout are full of his drawled and passionate irony. Soul-nourishing music. Do not live without it.
