Music Box: The Lemonheads

"Into Your Arms" by The Lemonheads

By the time I finally began to get over my post-'80s music shock (Bananarama is still the bomb!) and started to pay attention to "the new breed," the 1990s were pretty much over. That left me with a number of blind spots, but two bands that did make my radar were The Lemonheads (dreamy Evan Dando was undoubtedly to thank for that) and the ridiculously cool and talented Breeders (I was even one of the 10 people who showed up to see the Kelley Deal 6000 live at the Black Cat back in D.C.).

Jump ahead to 2008 and both of these bands are slated to make concert appearances here in New York in the next few weeks. In case you're wondering, yes, I'll be putting on the ole flannel shirt and pushing my way to the front of the stage and loving every minute of it all. I've got a lost decade to catch up on, you know ...

    Didn't we go together to that Kelly Deal show at the old Black Cat? I think I remember a tour bus named "Shasta" parked outside.
