Lemonheads live at Somerset House, London -16th July 2006

Review by Fliss Collier from The Metro

 

Lemonheads serenade Somerset

Evan Dando belted out a stream of solid gold Lemonheads classics under a hazy summer sky at London's swish Somerset House.

Though far from intimate, the setting could not have been any more perfect - watching the sun set into a sky of sparkling stars as Shame About Ray era numbers were trounced casually but happily.

People were so hippie happy that they were even skipping their merry ways to the toilet

Mixed with a batch of new Dando solo efforts, the gig pleased all camps of fans.

People were so hippie happy that they were even skipping their merry ways to the toilet.

Evan Dando looked so cleancuttedly like his early 90s era Lemonheaded self, that it wasn't necessary to squint and make like it was 1991 all over again.

His outmoded shaggy hipster locks and stripey sweater took us back to our years of teenage abandon.

The raucausly stomping Mrs Robinson was notable for its absence and the show left everyone feeling a tad shortchanged.

Nevertheless, there's something about the Lemonheads' brand of sunnyside up guitar pop that suits the summer ideally, so this was a fitting gig.
