After leaving Dinosaur Jr, (a band he reunited with in 2005), Lou Barlow teamed up in his pal Eric Gaffney in 1988 with the plan to make lo-fi four-track recordings, under the name Sebadoh.The duo made two albums, Weed Forestin and The Freed Man, and released both on cassette, and released Sebadoh III in 1991. (To buy the re-issue of Weed Forestin', go here:

Songs on that album were written by Barlow, Gaffney and a new recruit, bassist Jason Loewenstein. In 1993, Eric left and was replaced by drummer and friend Bob Fay, for two albums, Bakesale and Harmacy.

In 2004, Lou and Jason embarked on the “Turbo Acoustic” tour, but in 2007, the three original members of Sebadoh – Eric, Lou and Jason - reunited to play the “Classix” and performing together for the first time in 14 years across dates in the US, Canada and Europe. The setlist drew from a number of tracks off of their classic early-90s discs including III, Smash Your Head on the Punk Rock and the then-reissue of Bubble and Scrape.

In 2011, Jason and Lou set out on a world tour to support the re-issue of Sebadoh’s 1994 album, Bakesale (the band’s acclaimed fifth full-length album). Remastered and re-released by SubPop in North America, and Domino Records in the UK, the deluxe version of Bakesale comes filled with b-sides, EP tracks and rareties, plus photos and liner notes by Lou and Jason. There’s also a grey-marble vinyl version. The band also embarked on the “Bakesale/Harmacy Remembering Time Tour”, joined by drummer Bob D’Amico, who has played with Jason as part of the Friendly Fires and Circle of Buzzards.

In 2012, after disembarking from the Weezer Cruise that took place in January on a ship that sailed between Miami and Mexico, Sebadoh began work on the band’s first new music in 14 years. Recording in several batches at Lou’s rehearsal spot, Jason, Bob and Lou plan to release an EP of new songs in August to support a Sebadoh/Circle of Buzzards/Lou Barlow solo East coast tour. The EP will also be made available for download and a full new album will be issued in the new year.

A post-punk noise/pop band from NYC formed in 1986, Flower was a staple of the NYC underground scene carved out by Sonic Youth, Live Skull, and Swans, utilizing the noise element of the aforementioned artists to deepen the textures of more classically oriented pop/rock songs. They disbanded in 1990, leaving one EP and two albums to be remembered by. Members Richard (Guitar, Vocals) and Ed Baluyut (guitar) soon formed indie legends Versus, while Ian James (Bass, Vocals) joined Geffen flame-out Cell, and Andrew Bordwin (Drums) helped found Ruby Falls. Ian and Andrew would later team up to form the pop/punk band French.

Having not written together for three decades and having played less than a handful of reunion shows, Flower recently reunited, locked themselves in a room, and did not emerge until more than an album’s worth of new material had been written.
