Know Your Enemy

"There are cynical people at the reins who want to keep you going and burn yourself out. The music industry is the worst one, as far as showbiz goes. The most evil, the most venal. It's really fucked up."

Thus speaks Evan Dando of The Lemonheads, in conversation with Michael Hann of the Quietus - very much the voice of experience, though he didn't exactly resist burn-out by ingesting copious quantities of drugs. Much the same as The Strokes, then.

Of all the lows to which he stooped, hanging around with Menswear is infinitely worse than heckling Jeff Buckley.
