Evan Dando's pal Johnny Depp (post "21 Jump Street" and "Edward Scissorhands," but very very pre "Pirates") was a frequent guest during the recording sessions at Cherokee Studios according to music producer-engineer Bruce Robb. Depp plays the lead character in this official video.
Described by music journalist and author Everett True as “A 30-minute insight into what it’s like to live hard and fast and loose and happy with like-minded buddies, fuelled by a shared love for similar bands and drugs and booze and freedom.”. ‘It’s A Shame About Ray’ had a considerable impact back in those heady, carefree days of ’92, the record perfectly captures Dando’s ability to effortlessly encapsulate teenage longing and lust over the course of a two-minute pop song.
