Listen: Tom Morgan – “One True Love”, “Taste for Blood”

Tom Morgan’s name doesn’t warrant a mention in the overview of The Lemonheads on the band’s AllMusic profile yet the Australian songwriter who led Smudge played an integral part in Evan Dando’s alt-rock heyday. Morgan and Dando collaborated on a number of songs on It’s A Shame About Ray (including the title track) and Come On Feel the Lemonheads.

In early February, Fire Records will release Morgan’s debut solo album, Orange Syringe. Even in it’s stripped down, low key format, you can hear the pop genius that Morgan infused into The Lemonheads music some 20 years ago.

Here are a couple of tracks from Orange Syringe.
