Product Description

BBC Review

Describing any record as accessible can be troubling for fans and bands alike – too often it’s a dread word or shibboleth used by long-time devotees and music journos too afraid to tear down a sacred cow as its traipses muck across a prized back catalogue in the name of mainstream acceptance. Bakesale, Sebadoh’s fifth album from 1994, somehow manages to buck the trend, dispensing with the irksome plunks and scrabblings that permeated (or, indeed, comprised) earlier recordings and leaving behind a scruffy clutch of casual, barely-be-bothered indie rock gems.

Typically loaded with wryly observed heartbreak, the album revolves around the Lou Barlow/Jason Loewenstein songwriting axis, the pair tag-teaming their way through a mix of crotchety, drug-fugged rockers (License to Confuse, Magnet’s Coil); bruised, slower-paced odes to loves long-since lost (Not Too Amused, Together Or Alone); and those like the dreamily shambolic Skull that fall somewhere in-between. The only exception comes in the shape of Temptation Tide, penned by newcomer Bob Fay (and co-voiced by his partner Anne Slinn), who perched atop Eric Gaffney’s still-warm drum stool for this record and the next.

As with the earlier reissues of Sebadoh III and Bubble & Scrape, this revisitation comes significantly expanded and embellished. Along with the album proper a second disc neatly compiles an array of hard-to-find EPs and straggler tracks, rescuing neophytes from dirty-thumbed fuddlings through Berwick Street used bins and allowing those who’ve grimly clung to dog-eared copies of the original singles to put them into long-overdue semi-retirement.

Barlow, in the newly-penned liner notes, suggests Bakesale isn’t the best Sebadoh album but is at least his most fondly-remembered. Whether others will agree with this faint praise is the stuff of esoteric indie nerd debate that could easily last until the end of time – or at least until the coffee stops flowing at Rough Trade East. What can’t be denied, however, is that the album easily deserves its place in the hearts of those who admire fellow fuzzy-edged slackers Superchunk, Pavement and Guided by Voices as much as those new to the game, who’ll find echoes of the band’s sound fizzling through modern-day collegiate grungesters like Milk Music or Gun Outfit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sebadoh have done us proud with a scorcher 16 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the perfect doh album. I highly urge any fan and newcomer to get this nugget. There are some beautiful love songs and some kickin' rock toons. The recording sounds like it was done in the space of a few days, pure genious. If you can find it, I highly reccomend the Sebadoh Four song CD... There are actually 10 songs on that record, mostly out takes and demos of the Bakesale sessions. Those two records are the best that Sebadoh have done so far. To put a little excitement into your life buy this record now!

5.0 out of 5 stars The new edition 25 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The first CD contains the Bakesale album, and all the extras are on the second CD (62 minutes). These consist of a few demos of Lou Barlow songs with acoustic guitar and lots of worthwhile experiments in musical dissonance, with several of Jason Loewenstein's best contributions to Sebadoh. This second disc alone would be one of my favourite Sebadoh issues. An absolute must for fans and a good way to start an addiction for Sebadoh.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lo-fi American laureate 18 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
Torn between Jason Loewenstein's noisenik tendencies and Lou Barlow's pop instincts, Sebadoh's albums didn't always hang together coherently. But on 'Bakesale' they perfected a happy medium of crunching guitars and irresistible pop hooks.
It's really an album of love songs - and WHAT love songs! Barlow really has a flair for a well-turned line, and his plaintive, yearning voice gives these songs extra bite and poignancy. The production is resolutely lo-fi but this serves to enhance the feeling of immediacy and spontaneity.
Two songs stand out for me: 'Rebound', which is two minutes of brilliant punk pop, and the album's closing track 'Together Or Alone', a tender, resigned lament.
As an example of American lo-fi indie music of the mid 1990s, it really doesn't come any better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Classic 26 Jan 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This is the best album in my collection. Finally got Sebadoh in MP3 format after having their "4song cd" on vinyl. Real music for real people not for the masses. If you've not never heard of them then steer clear you wouldn't like it. Stick to mainstream pap.
