If recent years have taught us anything, it's that influential indie groups never stay dead. So it was with Dinosaur Jr. – the slacker noise rock gods who reformed in 2005 – and so it was with Lou Barlow's other band. After the bassist was ejected from Dinosaur Jr. in 1989, he turned his attentions to the group that had hitherto just been a side project. Kings of the four-track, Sebadoh became icons of the '90s lo-fi rock scene, and counted the likes of Pavement amongst their closest kin. The group fizzled out around the end of the decade, but continued to play occasional concerts during the following years, finally having a proper reunion in 2007. They've been stoking fresh interest by dusting off albums from their heyday – this Japan tour is in support of the recently reissued versions of 1994's Bakesale and 1996's Harmacy.
