Lemonheads Late 70's Firebrand SG For Sale (with original tour case)
"I am a believer in the theory that guitars have songs in them. I wrote Losing Your Mind on this guitar.
I bought it in 1994, the year before The Lemonheads recorded Car Button Cloth and used it extensively on that album, most notably the solo on The Outdoor Type and the solos on It's All True. This guitar was also my main axe on the 1996/1997 world tour."

Very, very exciting, but strictly unconfirmed and unofficial news. Until we hear more, treat this as a strong rumour.
The Lemonheads are to play as part of the Don't Look Back season in London, which runs from August through September. The season consists of bands such as The Stooges, Mudhoney and Belle & Sebastian, playing particular albums from their back catalogues in their entirety. The Lemonheads will perform It's A Shame About Ray. Whether this will be the original release or the pressing which features Mrs Robinson remains unknown!
Gigs for the season will take place at The Barbican, Koko and Carling Hammersmith Apollo, but as yet there is no word on when or where The Lemonheads will perform.

Following on from some interesting questions asked here on the forum, we've been in touch with Curtis Casella at Taang! about the proposed Lemonheads boxset that was mentioned in the sleevenotes to the Lick reissue. Great to hear that it may yet get released:
"We started getting it together. Evan and myself started going thru hours of unreleased early Lemonheads stuff...we found their first show ever - that is pretty cool. It still might happen, especially if the Heads get back together in 2005."
He goes on to suggest that it could take the form of a singles compilation alongside a multi-CD boxset. Fingers crossed...
At last, we've got to work on our plans to improve the discography section. We've now added detailed pages for all Lemonheads & solo albums including tracklistings, credits, chart information and press releases where available.
We'll be putting up similar pages for all the singles, compilations and everything else over time.
