Jeff Mellin - Smile Like A Lemon Peel Kiss Like A Papercut

When The Cars’ Ric Ocasek produced Guided By Voices, I hoped it would sound something like Jeff Mellin’s Smile Like A Lemon Peel Kiss Like A Papercut does today: power pop beat and bounce, controlled messiness and maybe – and it was a lot to ask – Gary Valentine’s post-Blondie new wave classics. Come on, who wouldn’t want a song that matches up to The First One?

On the other side, Don’t Go Crazy Before I Do, a duet featuring Jenny Dee, is the song Evan Dando forgot to write with Juliana Hatfield. It’s easy to imagine Jerry Harrison played the organ on this.

Neat, huh? Grab a copy of this 7" while you can.
