This is where all those odds and sods are going that are neither Sebadoh nor really solo work by either Lou, Eric or Jason. It is where I will include records that either Lou, Eric or Jason have made guest appearances or are part of a one off collaboration. It is also where you can find work by Sebadoh alumni such as Bob Fay but expect gaps. Probably lots of them.
Belt Buckle – Judas Suicide – 7″ – Sonic Bubblegum – 1993
This 7″ features Lou playing with Bob Fay and Eric Matthews of Cardinal. It comes in a number of different version. What I believe is the standard edition comes on black vinyl and with a black and grey sleeve. There is also a clear vinyl version with this sleeve. It also comes with a Sonic Bubblegum insert. There is also a version with a black and red sleeve.

Was not sure if to add this but Lou appears as part of Leafy Chipmunk with Bob Fay and Bob Weston. What’s more it is a Beat Happening covers album so why not eh!
The 6ths – Wasp’s Nest – 4×7″/CD – London – 1995
This album was pulled together with songs written by Stephen Merritt of the Magnetic Fields but rather than sung by him recorded by a myriad of special guests. Lou takes on vocals duties on the track In the City in the rain plus there are contributions from the likes of Amelia Fletcher from Talulah Gosh and Heavenly, Mary Timony and Stuart Moxham. There is a particularly cool 7″ box set which is limited to about 1,000 copies.
In the City in the rain
Dale Crover –United Fruit – 7″ – Amphetamine Reptile – 2014
Lou played Guitar on this rocking release on AmRep backing up the Melvin’s Dale Crover. I believe there are two versions of the 7″. There is a red and silver splatter vinyl edition limited to 300 copies and there is a black and silver version with hand stamped, numbered sleeves. Dead or alive is a Warren Zevon cover.

Tres Padres – Father’s Day – 7″ – 2015
An as yet unreleased (Potentially never to be released) 7″ from Lou Barlow, Dale Crover and Imaad Wasif under the Tres Padres moniker. The record was recorded at Dave Grohl’s studio and was planned to be a charity release. For some reason it has never materialised despite already having been pressed in an edition of 1,000 copies. Lou has made the tracks available on YouTube but the records themselves are being sat on by whoever had them pressed. Hopefully one day it will see the light of day!
Father’s Day / A lot to maintain

As I mentioned at the top of the page there are too many gaps to fill and whilst obsessive I’m not that obsessive. Dinosaur Jr for example is notable by its absence. Anyway pictures from Sebadoh and Suchlike etc below for your viewing pleasure…
