Review of The Lemonheads
by Arwa Haider

From Metro, 25th September 2006

Back in the early 1990s, Evan Dando coulda been a mainstream contender - then the drugs kicked in. He's still here, though, and has now reformed his big-hearted rockers The Lemonheads for a self-titled album. It's a brilliantly bold return, from Dando's observations on Pittsburgh to J Mascis's guest guitar on No Backbone and the mix of country licks and murderous intent of Baby's Home. Like Dando himself, the album is ravaged yet boyish, persuasive and defiantly unapologetic.
