I’ve mentioned before how much I love the Lemonheads, particularly when they head into alt-country territory.
Back in 2003, when the band were on one of their many fallow periods, head ‘Head Evan Dando released a criminally overlooked album called “Baby I’m Bored”, which is chocked full of the things.
Here’s one of my favourites from it:
Evan Dando – It Looks Like You
A few months ago I stumbled across a rather marvellous compilation of some of Alex Chilton’s recordings, called ‘Free Again: The “1970” Sessions’.
That’s Alex Chilton of The Box Tops, Big Star and…er, well… Alex Chilton fame.
This is one of my favourite tracks on it, a gloomy little beauty:
Alex Chilton – All We Ever Got From Them Was Pain
