Guitarist Lou Barlow joined the hardcore punk band Deep Wound in 1982, during high school times in western Massachusetts. They put out a decent 7-inch plus a few songs on one compilation, and then broke up when they tired of the genre’s limitations. Not too long after that, Deep Wound’s drummer started a new, slower and noisier band called Dinosaur. The drummer switched to guitar, and Lou picked up the bass. As an extension of his earliest, acoustic guitar-strummed and intentionally distorted home recordings, Barlow started Sebadoh with Eric Gaffney (and later Jason Loewenstein). Barlow did continue to release solo recordings, under both his own name and as Sentridoh. And in the ’90s, Barlow broached alt-rock stardom with the loop-based Folk Implosion, who had a song in that movie Kids. Barlow was kicked out of Dinosaur in the late ’80s but rejoined in 2005. Similarly, Sebadoh took a long break, not releasing any records between 1999 and 2013. These days, Barlow is super busy; everything old is new again. Very newly remarried, he's moved back to Massachusetts from California to be near his kids, and he’s in three bands again — Dinosaur Jr., his solo music as Lou Barlow, and Sebadoh, which has just put out a new album.
