Grant McLennan – Lighting Fires (1994)

www.marcsmusiclist.comGrant McLennan was a founding member of Australian band The Go-Betweens, along with Robert Forster. Grant died of a sudden heart attack in Brisbane in 2006.

This song, Lighting Fires, has everything going for it: an infectious jangly melody, a great guitar sound, and poetic lyrics.

Grant recorded four solo albums—this song appears on two of them: 1994’s Fireboy and Horsebreaker Star, released the following year.

  1. Thanks for posting this. Grant was a genius. “Horsebreaker Star” is a stone-cold classic album, one of my favorites of all time.
