"The Lemonheads’ “Laughing all the Way to the Cleaners” EP was first issued on vinyl through the Huh Bag/Armory Arms label, though TAANG! was involved in the record’s distribution and signed them properly shortly thereafter. And before they became a big alternative deal, the Lemonheads were but one in a serious influx of ‘80s acts unthinkable without the precedent of The Replacements and especially Hüsker Dü. Sounding better now than they did circa ’87, a time when many of us were experiencing intense Mats/Dü fatigue, the songs comprising their debut EP are far from carbon copies (some might disagree), with great gobs of punk snot torpedoing around the four tracks. In particular, the snarling riffs of “I Like To” and the heaving libido purge of “I Am a Rabbit” turn “Laughing all the Way to the Cleaners” into a retroactively appealing proposition."
