Evan Dando and Juliana Hatfield: Is She Really Going Out With Him?

Carol Clerk, Melody Maker, 13 November 1993

Evan Dando likes to avoid relationships. Juliana Hatfield is a self-confessed virgin. And yet, whatever their sexual orientation, Ev and Jules are indieland's second most famous couple, a platonic Sid'n'Nancy for the grunge age. In this historic tête à tête, Evan and Juliana race each other to the psychiatrist's couch and ask the questions on everybody's lips. Like: is Juliana attracted to animals? And what is it about Evan and dresses?
