It´s a Shame about Ray
Music by: The Lemonheads
Johnny Depp playing: Himself
After croaking in his backyard, Ray is ushered into the offices of the afterlife where it is discovered that pertinent information to gain entrance into heaven is “incomplete.” So Ray is taken into an all-white interrogation room where he is questioned about his life, particularly his romantic relationships, by a series of people who have famous last names (Brezhnev, Streisand, Brando, Quayle, etc.).
About The Lemonheads
The Lemonheads are an indie, alternative and punk band from the US. They were formed by Evan Dando and Ben Deily, in high school at the Commonwealth School in Boston ca. 1986. At this time they played very snotty punk rock and were briefly known as the Whelps until a name change in 1987 led to the birth of The Lemonheads.
Dando cut his losses and flew to Australia to write some songs with friends Nic Dalton and Tom Morgan. These songs formed the basis for It’s a Shame About Ray, the Lemonheads’ breakthrough album. However, a cover of “Mrs. Robinson” (recorded to promote the video release of The Graduate) was released to the annoyance of the band and got them the most exposure they’d had so far. When the “Ray” album was reissued, the track was tagged on to the end. The band’s breakthrough came with its second LP for Atlantic Records in 1992, “It’s a Shame About Ray”. In September 2005, Dando, Stevenson, and Lattanzi performed two shows at Shepherds Bush Empire in London, where they played the “It’s a Shame About Ray” LP in its entirety.
