Last night, a Stereogum staffer’s brother passed him a link to that old, weird-ass Blake Babies “Temptation Eyes” video — in it, an often yawning Evan Dando pops up. So, Dando on the brain, it was funny to wake up and notice that he’s getting some respect today: Pitchfork likes the It’s a Shame About Ray collector’s edition, he’s touring Ray live now, and Spinner’s celebrating with an archival video of “Alison’s Starting To Happen” from a performance in Australia in 1993.
Notice all the ladies in the front row? It’s a shame he and Juliana never got married. They could’ve grown old watching The Hills together.
