C'mon, feel these Lemonheads
Evan is in the backseat of his Cadillac.
Beloved alt-rockers The Lemonheads are returning to Australia this December.
Since they were formed by Evan Dando in Boston, Mass, in 1986, the family tree of The Lemonheads has many twisted tentacles and tangential branches, and a host of one-liners etched into its bark. Anyone could be a Lemonhead but for how long who knows? Leastways they’ll be shoulder-to-shoulder with Evan throwing discordant chords against alt-country-tinged melodies, playing that light and dark card. Through their ranks have passed Descendents, Blokes Babies, Dinosaur Jr - and even a member of Australia's The Eastern Dark.
In 2019, The Lemonheads have returned with “Varshons 2”, their 10th studio album. Evan is at the helm with producer Matthew Cullen also on guitar and siren, Come and Codeine’s Chris Brakow supplying guitar and Willy Mason and Nina Violet sitting in. It’s another mixtape in a different kitchen placing the oddball and the unsung next to The Eagles and Nick Cave. Where else could you hear the music of Tom Morgan’s short-lived Givegoods, English curmudgeons The Bevis Frond and Lucinda Williams so seamlessly joined at the hip?
The Lemonheads will be making stops in Fremantle, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, as well as appearing at this year’s Fairgrounds Festival in Berry. Tickets are on sale at Handsome Tours.
