Review of No Backbone
by DH

From Rolling Stone October 2006

“No Backbone” is in no danger of being mistaken for a hit single, but the tuneful, strummy-strum folk-punk sloppiness of the first new song available from the Lemonheads in a decade is a welcome surprise. Frontman Evan Dando is the only returning member, and his vocals are as charmingly dazed as ever; paired with the indie shredding of guest lead guitarist J Mascis, the tune manages to create a near-perfect storm of early-Nineties college-rock nostalgia.
