Pioneers of the 90s lo-fi movement, Sebadoh make their long awaited return to Australia this September for the first time in over 15 years. The band began in the late 80s as a songwriting outlet for Lou Barlow of Dinosaur Jr and collaborator Eric Gaffney. Following Barlow’s departure from Dinosaur Jr in 1989, he and Gaffney turned their attention to Sebadoh and with the addition of Jason Loewenstein the band began touring and recording demos, leading to record deals with Sub Pop, Domino, City Slang and Homestead. Flipping between Barlow’s sensitive folk rock and Gaffney’s noise experiments without warning, this diversity became the band’s calling card and by 1993 Sebadoh had released six records and earned a devoted cult following. They went on to release their two most accessible and successful albums, being Harmacy and the recently reissued Bakesale. They’ll play Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane this September.
