Sebadoh – The Freed Pig

You can tell from his eyes that that J. Mascis is one moody dude. Every moment such a splendid freak scene and so in a bid to save his sanity Lou Barlow broke from Dinosaur Jr. with the bands drummer to form Sebadoh (he was kicked out). That was 1989 and two years later after a couple of acoustic efforts Sebadoh released ‘Sebadoh III’ which contained ‘The Freed Pig’. The album has been out of print for years but is being re-released this summer by Domino with extra remixes and singles. From the off it’s clear ‘The Freed Pig’ was going to become an essential piece of ammunition in the indierock canon. The semi-screechy guitars are a delight and with Barlow’s unruffled delivery the mix proves to be a seminal combination. Not content with just one creative outlet Barlow formed Folk Implosion as a side project in 1995 and had his biggest hit with ‘Natural One’, which was included on the ‘Kids’ soundtrack. Check out ‘Bakesale’ and ‘Harmacy’ for further evidence of Sebadoh’s worth. KD
