Go-Betweens On 24?

In a year when everything from CSI to the latest Target commercial has cool music, 24 wants us to know it’s as hip as The O.C.. Via Entertainment Weekly

24 is the kind of TV show that begs endless questions, but those familiar with the Go-Betweens — a semi-obscure ’80s Australian pop band — are fixated on one in particular. Did the Fox drama name a shady company McLennan-Forster as a wink to the group’s co-frontmen, Grant McLennan and Robert Forster? “Frankly, it has a great ring,” says 24 exec producer Evan Katz. “It seemed like a good opporunity to pay homage to a very talented cult band.”

Nice. As long as Jack Bauer doesn’t sing “Cattle & Cane.”
