Lou Barlow / Sentridoh Singles


Sentridoh Losercore

Losercore – 7″ – Smells Like Records – 1992

From the title to Lou’s patented downstroke guitar style its classic solo Lou.  There is a second pressing of this record which comes with a coverless sleeve.  It generally seems to come in a beige sleeve although my copy has a white sleeve.  I think the label on the record itself is brown rather than white as it is on the standard version although I can’t confirm this.  Anyone know?

Losercore / Really Insane / Instrumental


Sentridoh mysterious

The Mysterious Sentridoh E.P – 7″ – Little Brother Records – 1993

The tracks here all feature on the fantastic City Slang collection of early nineties Sentridoh singles.  Some dark, dirty sounds…but that’s a good thing!  The pictures below include a shot of the original reel 2 reel tapes froom Lou’s Instagram page.

Very limited lathe cut 7″ hand produced at WARMfest in Indianapolis by Joyful Noise.  These were also created for other Joyful Noise bands including Half Japanese.  Each edition was limited to 75 copies and hand signed by the artist.  Those that did not sell at the festival were offered up to JN VIP members.  Good luck hunting it down at inflated costs on Ebay or Discogs like I had to 😦
