Album Description

Robert Forster s first album in 11 years, The Evangelist finds the Go-Betweens co-founder as winsome and haunting as ever. Nearly two years after the death of Grant McLennan, his fellow Go-Between and writing partner of 30 years, Forster has produced and album that is both wildly progressive and haunted by the ghost of his artistic soul mate. ''Demon Days,'' co-written with McLennan shortly before he died, is an all too telling spine tingling journey into oblivion. ''Pandanus'' and ''Did She Overtake You?'' are lively juggernauts that delightfully reprise the rhythmic tensions of Spring Hill Fair. ''The Evangelist'' is a wistful cousin to ''He Lives My Life'' (from The Friends of Rachel Worth) and ''From Ghost Town'' is a deeply personal and poignant farewell to a lost brother. Throughout, The Evangelist is a masterpiece of honesty and compassion. Forster himself describes The Evangelist this way, ''I wasn t sure if I was ever
going to make another record but this summer it just materialized. It s a direct
record. I ve written seven of the songs, and three are co-written with Grant.
Adele and Glenn from The Go-Betweens are with me. It s not Oceans Apart
2 it s something else, but with trails going into the past and I m proud of it.''
