The Lemonheads: "I guess I got a little lost there for a while..."

Sylvia Patterson, New Musical Express, 14 September 1996

It was all going so well for EVAN DANDO and THE LEMONHEADS. Following their 1992 breakthrough album It's A Shame About Ray, Evan was hailed as the pin-up slacker king. Then, oops! he went barmy, took a warehouse-load of drugs, hung out with Oasis and became a general all-round embarrassment. But he's back from the brink with storming new album, Car Button Cloth. SYLVIA PATTERSON charts the fall and rise of slackerdom's prodigal son.
