This song is by The Go-Betweens and appears on the album Before Hollywood (1983) and on the album Bellavista Terrace: Best of The Go-Betweens (1999). I recallA schoolboy coming homeThrough fields of caneTo a house of tin and timberAnd in the skyA rain of falling cindersFrom time to time the wasteMemory wastes. I recallA boy in bigger pantsLike everyoneJust waiting for a chanceHis father's watchHe left it in the showersFrom time to time the wasteMemory wastesAnd the wasteMemory wastes.

My relationship with the Go-Betweens, and in particular this song, dates from 1982. The farm Grant McLennan – half of the front pairing of the Go-Betweens, alongside Robert Forster – grew up on, in northern Queensland in Australia, was a long way from my childhood home, in the southernmost part of New Zealand’s South Island, but the impressions they left felt the same. The song was recorded and released as the first single off of their second album Before Hollywood, which established their international reputation. Cattle and Cane rose to No 4 on the UK indie chart in 1983. It is one of the classic songs of the 80s. In 1983, McLennan described writing Cattle and Cane: I wrote (the song) to please my mother. She hasn’t heard it yet because my mother and stepfather live (on a cattle station) and they can’t get 240 volts electricity there, so I have to sing it over the phone to her.
