Deluxe 30th Anniversary Edition of The Lemonheads ‘Lovey’. A 2xLP/CD Deluxe Book with expanded liner notes and unseen photos – this is the definitive document of Dando’s first steps towards the mainstream.
The lovingly repackaged remastered release is accompanied by a second disc, ‘Triple J Live at the Wireless’, taken from their legendary 1991 trip to Australia.
‘Lovey’ was the major label debut for Evan Dando’s Lemonheads from 1990, caught up in Grunge mania and following three ramshackle punk albums that only hinted at what was to come.
“Dando never completely abandons punk-pop but he balanced it with excursions into jangle pop and country-rock” All Music
Pivoted on a more approachable set of sweet melodies but still rife with punk spirit. Polished in the arrangements, nodding to the excess of American culture (Manson and Gummi Bears), hectoring Reagan’s drug laws (‘Lil’ Seed’) and riffing on everyday life.
