It would appear this sprightly Lemonheads performance was professionally recorded for potential use as a source of live tracks or a mini live album to be sent out to radio and aired later as a live Lemonheads broadcast. This recording of the full set was transferred from an in-house reference cassette likely used to approve the mix/sound quality and to select which tracks to use later.

Evan and the band had just released Car Button Cloth two weeks prior. The playing is spirited and the songs hold up very well 20 years later. Dando may have been a bit of a mess back then, but he sure wrote some catchy songs.

An audience tape of the show was posted a couple weeks ago, which prompted me to pull this out of the vault and make a transfer. Thank you very much robgronotte for volunteering to track and post this on our behalf. We always appreciate the help.
