Beachfield - Brighton Bothways

thank you to original uploader

Beachfield is the musical project of Glenn Thompson, once drummer of the Go-Betweens, and an ongoing member of Robert Forster's band. During the '90s Glenn was also the drummer and sometimes singer of another Australian pop group Custard. Beachfield's debut album Brighton Bothways was released in late 2007 throughout Europe on the Tuition label, and will be available in Australia early 2008.

This uniquely Australian worldview of Go-Betweens drummer Glenn Thompson is welded here to sun-kissed melodies and exemplary songwriting. These cinematic songs of love, loss and exhilaration feel like precious, forgotten memories and 'Brighton Bothways' is a riveting musical history lesson mixed with everyday uncertainty.
