The Lemonheads - Lovely (30th Anniversary Edition) 2LP
Deluxe reissue of The Lemonheads "Lovely" for Record Store Day 2020, housed in a bookback sleeve with expanded liner notes and unseen photos – this is the definitive document of Dando’s first steps towards the mainstream.
The lovingly repackaged LP is accompanied by a second vinyl, "Triple J Live at the Wireless", an unearthed radio session taken from their 1991 trip to Australia.
A label debut for Evan Dando’s Lemonheads from 1990, following three “ramshackle punk” albums for Taang! pivoted on a more approachable set of sweet melodies still rife with punky spirit. A light and dark album, polished in the arrangements, nodding to the excess of American culture (Manson and Gummi Bears), hectoring Reagan’s drug laws (Lil’ Seed), riffing on everyday life.
