Product Description

Product Description

Limited 180g Black vinyl edition, comes with free CD of bonus tracks. Creator is the second album by legendary Boston band The Lemonheads. Still featuring the full original line-up of Evan Dando, Ben Deily, and Jesse Peretz, the album also includes John P. Strohm (of the Blake Babies, Antenna, and Velo-Deluxe) on drums. From the oddly surreal album cover image (a snapshot of friend and high school classmate Ivan Kreilkamp, originator of the name Lemonheads, clutching a box of Cheerios) to the themes of death, dreams, obsession, and mayhem that haunt the material, Creator is weird, ambitious, and markedly moodier than its predecessor without having lost the band s irreverent sense of humour. Also evident in this sophomore effort is a newfound attention to idiosyncratic detail from the precisely timed inter-song pauses and sound clips, to the carefully-crafted song order of the album s original 13 tracks. Creator finds Ben Deily once again slipping in quotations from Emily Dickinson ( Burying Ground ) and references to Matthew Arnold ( Come to the Window ), while Dando breaks new ground in song writing complexity (the rich sonic tapestry of Out ) as well as arrangement, ushering in the band s first-ever acoustic recording (his cover of Charles Manson s Your Home Is Where You re Happy ). At the same time, the band still fires off blistering punk rock ( Clang Bang Clang, Die Right Now, Take Her Down ) and finds time to lovingly trash Kiss 1977 classic Plaster Caster. Recorded in one coherent series of sessions unlike its predecessor, Hate Your Friends, and its follow-up Lick Creator is, for all its musical schizophrenia, arguably the most coherent of the Lemonheads TAANG-era recordings. BONUS TRACKS: This Fire Records re-issue features bonus tracks including never-before-released live tracks from a 1988 radio session (featuring a never-before-heard configuration of the band, including guitarist Ben Deily on bass and vocals); also includes an original song ( Cease to Exist ) never released on any album, and a performance by Juliana Hatfield.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice to see the early Lemonheads albums getting Deluxe treatment! 28 Dec. 2014
By R. Watts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Probably the best Lemonheads album in their catalogue, especially during their tenure at Taang Records. Recorded during their punk rock era, while the band featured two prominent singer/songwriters, Evan Dando AND Ben Deily. The album opens up with "Burying Ground" and "Sunday", both performed by Deily, who truly gave the band its punk edge back in those days. "Clang Bang Clang" and "Out" (a standout track for sure) continue featuring Dando on Lead vocals, which offer a glimpse into the not-far-off-in-the-future recordings of the Dando-lead Lemonheads of the 90s.. "Your Home is Where You're Happy", a cover of Charles Manson's recorded version in the 60s, is another familiar sounding Dando performance, "Falling", sung by Deily, is classic Lemonheads all the way, sounding like the bastard stepchild of "Second Chance" from HATE YOUR FRIENDS the year before. Jesse Peretz's bass playing really shines on this track. "Plaster Caster", a cover of KISS's 1977 classic is performed, and although it strays very little from the original version, it works well within the confines of the album. "Postcard", an acoustic ballad (a first for the band at that point) is performed beautifully by Deily and it proves that the band could stretch its wings a bit and not rely solely on snot rock anthems.

The Deluxe re-release is a winner! Packaged as a digi-pack, with liner notes written by former drummer John Strohm and a few photos from the band during the CREATOR period. The real reason to purchase this is the 11 bonus tracks, featuring the band performing early tunes at WERS in Boston in 1988. Juliana Hatfield joins them on a live recording of "From Here to Burma."

*If you are expecting to hear the live Holland interview along with on-air performances of Mallow Cup and Luka (From the earlier versions of CREATOR) you won't find them on this new release. They are featured on the Deluxe version of LICK.
