iTunes Review

Hugely influential though never superstars themselves, Massachusetts rockers Sebadoh were one of the most crucial bands of the post-punk/alternative/lo-fi/indie/emo landscape. Bubble and Scrape is their final album with founding member (and musical wildcard) Eric Gaffney, whose explosive improvisations were the perfect counterpoint to Lou Barlow's perpetually pouting lyricism. Jason Lowenstein, who joined the ranks on III also comes into his own here, contributing some of his best work to date with jams like "Sister," "Sixteen," and the chaotic "Flood." Lou's trademark sensitive musings are in fine form, especially on the weepy single "Soul and Fire," while Eric's spaz-happy outbursts are especially impressive on tracks like "Emma Get Wild" and the harmonica-laced freakout "Fantastic Disaster." Though various incarnations of the group would continue to record throughout the rest of the nineties, this is really their last great album, and it's held up extremely well over the years; Domino reissued it in 2008 to coincide with a European reunion tour and All Tomorrows Parties gigs.

Customer Reviews

BRAVO, EVERY TRACK, its BUTTER, BABY, BUTTER.

THATS IT. EVERY CORD IS LOVE. FACT, NOT JIVE, THIS ALBUM AND BAND ARE A HUGE CORNERSTONE TO INDIE ROCK. Also look at Pavement, Silver Jews, Portastatic... Sub Pop and Merge labels are TERRIFIC. THANK YOU LOU BARLOW. P.S. GET SEBADOH BACK TOGETHER. XOXO... Terrific Todd

Classic Indie Album

"Soul and Fire" is an indie anthem, "Sister" is cool enough to be added to the Sonic Youth album of the same name, "Elixir is Zog" is weird and has a cool bass part, and "Homemade" is Sebadoh's feel-good number. This album as a whole is GOOD. 5 stars.

A++, fantastic bloody album- a must have for all wiggers

This album is mind blowing. How can an acoustic guitar be so punk rock? And I've heard Johnny Thunders acoustic jams and they are horrible, but this is full on rockin'. I can skate to this shyt. It's hard like Venom and it's mellow like Nick Drake and it's brain fodder for emotional types. Nothing compares. This is a must have for any serious collector, and if you knew anything, you'd know Lou Barlow was in Dinosaur Jr. which was (used to be) a great flannel band. This stuff is a little on the art school tip, but it's only the fanbase that's aggregious, the music is splendid and the lyrics are painfully brilliant.

Biography

Formed: 1989 in Amherst, MA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

As much a collective of musicians as a band, Sebadoh was the quintessential lo-fi band of the '90s. Formed by singer/songwriter Lou Barlow while he was the bassist for Dinosaur Jr. in the late '80s, Sebadoh's music was a virtual catalog of '80s alternative rock and '90s indie rock, featuring everything from jangle pop to noise-rock experimentalism. After being kicked out of Dinosaur in 1989, Barlow turned his attention toward Sebadoh, a home-recording project that he and drummer/songwriter Eric Gaffney...
