Glad I Don’t Know

Glad i don’t know – Lemonheads

I was shown this video recently of an Evan Dando solo show where he plays this song with Tom Morgan and Nic Dalton backing. It’s nice. For this Lemonheads fan who is prejudicially not a Lemonheads fan and therefore finds other ways to enjoy them, like crediting everything good about them to someone not Evan or going back to their earliest stuff when they were not the same band as they were when most successful, it’s great to see this song given life. Conflicting, too. It makes me wish i had gone to see an Evan Dando solo show.

Glad I Don’t Know

Glad i don’t know – Lemonheads

Is Evan Dando still a babe? At one stage everyone – cool older girls, alternative and even mainstream press and radio, my mother, everyone – thought so. He was the early to mid 90’s slacker male ideal. It must have been great. I’m not sure if at the time of Hate Your Friends cyclical fashion and all cosmic elements were aligned perfectly to pronounce him as the rock world’s foremost dapper man, as they were in those glorious days of alternative. And i’m not sure if drugs, old age and the cycle of fashion again have extinguished his star now.

I never hear anything about him. I never see him on the front cover of magazines, rock or not, his soft long hair, fringe in his eyes, those lips, shirt barely buttoned. Classically handsome found in the roughness of alternative, and wearing it perfectly. Personally, i don’t know what the big deal was… or i do, precisely, as it’s everything i lack.
