Fire Records to reissue early Lemonheads punk albums this October.



Before they were covering Simon & Garfunkel and selling millions of records, Lemonheads were a punk band, and essentially a duo, at that.

Between 1987 and 1989, Evan Dando and Ben Deily created albums ‘Hate Your Friends’, ‘Creator’ and ‘Lick’, with the help of a rolling cast of musicians.
