Evan Dando, The Lemonheads

Okay, let’s be honest, The Lemonheads haven’t been essential listening since  Car Button Cloth dropped in 1996, but there’s a reason Evan Dando is still able to make a living touring on the band’s older material. It’s a Shame About Ray is a bona fide indie classic, and its followup Come On Feel The Lemonheads is the result of the former’s  success that features a contribution from Rick James, of all people. 

Dando had serious star power in the ’90s, and even when he’s blowing through his  setlists without a word to the audience, there’s still something captivating about him.
