Evan Dando: Early, Profession life and Career

Evan Dando has a good career. In 1986 he founded the Whelps together with his classmate Ben Deily (on drums) and Jesse Peretz (on bass). Together they play punk rock pieces and in 1987 they changed their name to Lemonheads. Their first recording is titled Laughing All the Way to the Cleaners.

Engaged by the local label Taang !, the Lemonheads publish the albums Hate Your Friends, Creator and Lick. Dando and Deily share the songwriting and also the role of the singer until 1989 when the latter leaves the band after a European tour to support the album Lick. He appeared in the 1995 film Heavy with actress Liv Tyler.

Dando, therefore, engages the drummer David Ryan, with whom he produces, in 1990, the album Lovey, which sells just 30,000 copies. Dando decides to change the negative situation by flying to Australia, to write some songs with his friends Nic Dalton and Tom Morgan.

These pieces form the basis of It’s a Shame About Ray, the acclaimed album that leads the Lemonheads to success. The band’s success coincides with an approach to softer mainstream sounds, putting aside the punk influences of the first phase of the Lemonheads career.

The social code that is the link for over ten years is dissolving in 1996 (after the “Car Button Cloth” album). It allows Dando to kick off a very desirable and sparse career soloist.

The first real record of songs comes in 2003. “Baby I’m Bore was written with the collaboration with Australian singer named Ben Lee and with guests like Giant Sand, is an acoustic pop record where Evan Dando, he seems to give his all his fears and troubles, exorcising his past drug experience and thus appearing hopeful towards the future (the song All My Life is emblematic).

In 2005 Dando was again back to Lemonheads performing together with Karl Alvarez and Bill Stevenson. They work out to produce the rhythm section of the Descendents. He also goes on a world tour for his new album that sees the light in 2006. In 2015, Dando has his solo shows in the United States and Europe.
