Emerging after The Lemonheads disbanded, Evan Dando returned
to music first with a solo tour and Live At The Brattle Theatre then came his
debut solo album Baby Iím Bored.
Mature and autobiographical, Baby Iím Bored is a stellar record that stripped Dando of his grunge label. At the time of recording, he was without the band which saw him lean more towards an achingly melodic alt-country rock sound. Self-deprecating, these are songs of decline and coming back from that.
The upcoming deluxe reissue of Baby Iím Bored on Fire Records via Southbound in NZ) for Record Store Day 2017, will be released as a deluxe two-platter vinyl set ó the second disc being unheard unreleased tracks, singles, b-sides and rarities. You can listen to two tracks from the bonus disc ó an alternate version of Shots is Fire featuring Liv Tyler and an alternate version of Rancho Santa Fe.
