Well, the concert place they're playing is the Cat's cradle in Carborro (chapel hill), I don't know how close you live to Chapel hill from wherever in North Carolina you live.

It's not an issue with the music, I like it a lot. They just give the vibe of sucking live.

It's the middle of the week. Damn. gah. That's why I don't even check Cat's Craddle's site anymore because they have so many good artists that I rather not know what I'm missing. I live like 2 hours east of Chapel Hill and I don't have my liscence so yea. As for quality download the recording and listen for yourself. It sounds pretty good to me.

Amazing amazing amazing band. Why it's taken me so long to comment on them is a mystery. III, Bubble & Scrape, Bakesale and Harmacy are all the bee's knees. I'd take Sebadoh over Dinosaur Jr any day.

Hmm I'm surprised I've never posted in here either. I've definitely listened to them a lot in the last2-3 years. I got Harmacy around 2002 or 2003 but it never really sank in. Then a few years ago I was driving around and the local indie station played 'On Fire' and it really hit me. So I pulled Harmacy off the shelf and that was that. It's unfortunate that pretty much all of their albums have their share of filler, but Bakesale and Harmacy are pretty damn solid. I also like The Sebadoh and Bubble & Scrape but a bit less. I think III is way overrated and has way too much crap in it. I might have loved it in the early 90s...but now it just sounds like silly garage BS, mostly, and it's way too damn long.

I love Sebadoh, and Folk Implosion, but I still definitely perfer Dinosaur Jr. Though Harmacy and Dare to Be Surprised are two of my favorite albums. No one mentioned Smash Your Head on the Punk Rock, I think it's just as good as Bubble & Scrape or III.

If all of their songs sounded more like this I would enjoy them more:

Sebadoh are just more up my street. Dont get me wrong, I love DJ's music, I really dig the melodic, distorted style of Mascis' guitar playing and I love the whole 'power trio' set up. But Sebadoh are just more unhinged with a greater variation in their output. I generally prefer Barlow to Mascis whilst I also think Gaffney produces really interesting sound collages and Loewenstein is a very underrated songwriter. I mean come on, Happily Divided and Not Too Amused are two of Sebadohs best songs.

As for Sidewinder finding III overrated... I strongly disagree. I think it's up there with Slanted & Enchanted and Bee Thousand in terms of the best Lo-Fi Indie Rock albums. But it's all personal opinion at the end of the day.

Yup, definitely all about personal opinion. I find Slanted & Enchanted much better, and I still haven't ever made it through a full listen of Fee Thousand.

While I like some lo-fi rock, it's not a style I specifically go after. I just like good indie and punk-rooted rock music...lo-fi or not.

III is my favourite Sebadoh record, it's such an intimate and personal record I find, mainly because of the way it's recorded I think. And there's some fun messy tracks on it too, I love it. It's the kinda album I wish I could make.

I'm surprised, Sidewinder, that you've never made it through Bee Thousand. I mean it's full of awesome, catchy songs ... I think it's just one of those albums I love so much I can't quite see how anyone can't enjoy it. Aw well, it's all opinion like ye say.
