"People are like monkeys." Drawing by Juliana Hatfield.
In an interview with former Phoenix and Boston Globe scribe Joan Anderman, JULIANA HATFIELD does everything but confirm that she's done with music. (Given that she called one of her last albums How To Walk Away, this may not register as the most shocking news.
UPDATE: As reported over the weekend, Evan Dando and Juliana Hatfield's rumored Nov. 1 show together at Great Scott has been confirmed, and the $20 tickets go on sale tomorrow at noon. New York's the Candles, a recent touring partner of Dando's, are the opening act. To get us all in the mood, two appropriate Dando/Hatfield mp3s have become available: a remastered "My Drug Buddy," which first appeared in the 1992 Lemonheads album It's A Shame About Ray, and "Waiting For Heaven" off 2001's God Bless The Blake Babies
We were surprised to learn that JULIANA HATFIELD has completed a new album called Peace and Love, which she produced, performed and recorded entirely on her own on an eight-track in her Cambridge apartment.
We were even more surprised, however, to learn that the liner notes to Peace and Love were written by "Boston Phoenix music editor James Parker."
