There's an interview with Hatfield over at Sound Spike, where she talks about the work they've done together and the perhaps unfair light in which Dando has come to be seen.
"In the past when I worked with Evan it was always in a strictly auxiliary capacity — backup singing, bass playing — but now that we will be on equal footing I think we could do a lot of damage," Hatfield said of the pairing. "I've always thought that Evan was an underrated songwriter.... His good looks and anti establishment attitude have overshadowed his skills."
I mean, I'm totally with her on the good looks thing. Dude has cheekbones like nothing you've ever seen, and his hair is obviously no joke. But, is Evan Dando really know for anti-establishment tendencies? I was under the impression that he was mostly just into, like, cuddling and smoking weed and listening to records. Whatever, though. Underrated regardless.
