Dom – “My Drug Buddy” (Lemonheads Cover)

We haven’t heard much from Dom since he changed his project’s name to Kiss 1O8 and released a set of spazzed-out electronic instrumentals last fall, but the Worcester native seems to be getting back in touch with his alt-rock side. Specifically, he just released a cover of the Lemonheads classic “Drug Buddy,” a song from… More »

Courtney Barnett – “Being Around” (Lemonheads Cover)

Late last year, the Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett came out of nowhere (or, you know, Australia) with her stunningly smart The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas. Barnett’s greatest asset is her sharp, unyielding, quizzical storytelling eye, but it turns out that she’s also a pretty great interpreter of other people’s material. Lately, she’… More »

Ryan Adams Producing, Playing On New Lemonheads LP

Nothing ever happened with the Fucking Virgins, the space-rock supergroup featuring Ryan Adams, Evan Dando, Melissa Auf Der Maur, and James Iha, but either way, kindred souls Adams and Dando seemed destined to work together at some point. That point, it appears, is this weekend. According to a couple Twitter posts, Adams will produce the… More »

The Lemonheads, The Shining Twins, Street Chant @ El Rey Theater, Los Angeles 10/27/11

With the omission of “Mrs. Robinson” and Juliana Hatfield on bass, The Lemonheads played all the way through their classic album “It’s A Shame About Ray” at the El Rey Theater.

Frightened Rabbit – “Confetti” (The Lemonheads Cover)

As more bands tackle the pre-picked covers in The Onion A.V. Club’s Undercover series (once a song’s been covered, it can’t be covered again), the new ones get more interesting. They’ve had some surprise pairings (like the Clientele covering “Paper Planes”), but this Lemonheads song seems a perfect fit for Frightened Rabbits (“I have alway… More »

Liv Tyler, Kate Moss Guest On Lemonheads’ Covers LP For Metal Label

The Lemonheads’ two biggest hits were versions of other people’s songs, so news about the band’s forthcoming covers collection is not too surprising. What is surprising is that Evan Dando & Co. have signed with Brooklyn’s The End Records, an indie metal label, after only one album on Vagrant. The new comp’s called VARSHONS and… More »

New Old Lemondheads Video – “Alison’s Starting To Happen” (Live)

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 AboutMore »

Evan Dando Rotates The Crops

“Since I was ten, it was all about doing all the drugs in the alphabet,” Evan Dando says in the new Spin. “And it worked out fine for me.” We won’t disagree. Despite a few career bumps (only 43 people bought Baby I’m Bored), Dando’s songwriting chops have enabled him to rise above being a… More »

?It really sounds like The Lemonheads. Maybe a little better.? That’s a tall order. But not if you’re Evan Dando. After that false start last week Vagrant’s giving the “let people listen to it” thing another go.

Lemonheads Sign To Vagrant

Vagrant Records, after releasing some live Eels and signing the Futureheads (stream “Skip To The End” at MySpace), must have hired a consultant to wipe away all those emo connotations. The label announced today it’s releaseing an album from a “re-united” Lemonheads this fall.
