Sebadoh is an American indie rock band, formed in 1986 in Westfield, Massachusetts by Eric Gaffney and Dinosaur Jr bass player Lou Barlow. Along with such bands as Pavement and Guided by Voices, Sebadoh helped pioneer lo-fi music, a style of indie rock characterized by low-fidelity recording techniques, often on four-track machines. The band’s early output, such as 1990’s Weed Forestin’ and 1991’s Sebadoh III, was typical of this style.

In March 2007, the “Sebadoh Classic” lineup of Barlow, Gaffney and Loewenstein went on tour together for the first time in fourteen years. This coincided with a new series of reissues which repackaged some of the early albums with extra discs of unreleased tracks. First came a reissue of Sebadoh III, then The Freed Man, and Bubble and Scrape.

The reunion tour continued into 2008, and in May included a live performance of 1993’s Bubble and Scrape in its entirety as part of the All Tomorrow’s Parties curated Don’t Look Back series at London’s Koko venue. In 2011 Sebadoh reissued Bakesale and Harmacy, and toured in support. Taking the place of Gaffney on drums was Bob D’Amico, who had played with Lowenstein in both Circle of Buzzards and Fiery Furnaces.
