GO-GO BETWEENS: We believe that Coldplay like to cite The Go-Betweens as an influence, although it makes us wonder what exactly they took away from the band, since their deft instrumentation and clever lyrics don't show any echo in Coldplay's work - even Grant McClennan would have torn up 'they was all yellow' rather than showing it to other people. To show just how great the quarter-century career of the 'betweens has been, the Go-Betweens are playing a one-off special with guests and gawd knows what else at the Barbican on June 27th. Let's hope that Chris Martin will be busy at Mothercare that night.
