The Lemonheads: Car Button Cloth

Everett True, Melody Maker, 19 July 1996

NO RADICAL new departures for Evan, then.

No jungle. No trip hop. No techno. No baggy. No "slo-fi", even. Thank f*** for that. A band who changes their sound to suit musical trends is a band not worth bothering with. What makes The Lemonheads so great is the way Evan Dando never seems to try: to start assimilating other styles after all this time would run contrary to his whole ethos.
