In the late 80’s, Juliana Hatfield exploded onto the scene with Freda Love (then Freda Boner) and John Strohm to create the college rock band (supposedly named by Allen Fucking Ginsberg) Blake Babies, and started a pretty storied career spanning the last 30 odd years. From The Lemonheads to Some Girls to forming the more recent band The I Don’t Cares, Juliana has been rocking off faces for the better part of 30 years.
She’s also made some strides into the world of acting as a lunch lady in the show Pete & Pete and made the obvious jump to playing an angel in the Christmas episode of My So Called Life.
Basically, for lack of a better phrase, Juliana has been killing the shit out of our early 90’s hearts.
Juliana Hatfield means to salt the fucking earth with this album, and I’ll be damned if I’m not super excited to go along for the ride…
… and thats what makes the next several paragraphs so hart to write.
