Double vinyl LP pressing. A musical conceived by brothers Brian and Michael D'Addario, The Lemon Twigs' ambitious 15-track opus Go To School was written, recorded, produced and mixed by the pair at their home in Long Island, NY. Their second album overall tells the heartbreaking coming-of-age story of Shane, a pure of heart chimpanzee raised as a human boy as he comes to terms with the obstacles of life. Todd Rundgren and the D'Addario's mother Susan Hall play Shane's parents. The album also features contributions from Jody Stephens (Big Star) and their father Ronnie D'Addario. The Lemon Twigs emerged in 2016 with their debut LP Do Hollywood, which was praised by Rolling Stone for "toting hooky songs that stand out for their intricate arrangements and delectable melodies" and NPR Music who mused, "Like listening to music from a time that never was... a baroque rock romp." The band quickly earned fans in Elton John, Questlove, and Jack Antonoff among many others, the latter of whom said, "Prediction: The Lemon Twigs will usher in a new phase of rock."
