The Lemonheads – Mallo Cup – 7″
With the announcement of a new, grittier, Lemonheads album on the horizon, Fire Records will be reissuing the band’s first three albums Hate Your Friends (1987), Creator (1988) and Lick (1989), which showcase the band’s early punk rock roots.
Firstly though, Fire Records will release a limited edition 7″ single featuring the original Lick version of ‘Mallo Cup’ as well as a live radio version, which was recorded for VPRO in Holland, which featured on a later version of Creator. The ‘Mallo Cup’ single is due for release in November in time for Evan’s tour.
Fans are rejoicing over the news that Evan Dando will be reuniting with original co-songwriter Ben Deily for the new album, which will doubtless see a return to a rawer, more noisy sound and sees Ryan Adams on production duties. Dando and Deily were co-conspirators for the first three Lemonheads albums, which saw them in full punk rock mode and sounding like an entirely different band from the subsequent commercially successful major label releases.
The three albums chart the course of the band from noise punk pranksters, to international pop stars as they evolved from Deily’s Lemonheads to Dando’s Lemonheads
