After ousting their old drummer, the guys from Sebadoh have finally managed to release - dare I say it - a commercially viable album. I'm shocked. As before, all of the members of the group write songs, but this time, they all stick together quite well. But as always, I find myself most drawn to those written by guitarist Lou Barlow. It's been neat watching how he's developed from this strange guy I almost wrote an Abnormal Psychology paper about to being dubbed the 'Most Sensitive Guy in Rock' by the music press not long ago. The first time I saw them play was 1991-ish, and they all got really drunk and swapped instruments, which turned out not to be a real winner of an idea. Eight years later, I caught up with them at the Troubadour, and it was nice to see that they'd done a lot of growing up in the interim.
