Bubble & Scrape – LP/CD – Domino/Sub Pop – 1993

My favourite album and an all time classic.  This was the last album Eric would play a major part in before parting ways with Sebadoh.  The album was re-released with additional tracks by Domino records and the original trio reunited for a series of shows to promote the re-release.  1,000 of the original UK LPs came with a free 7″.

Soul and Fire / Two Years Two Days / Telecosmic Alchemy / Fantastic Disaster / Happily Divided / Sister / Cliche / Sacred Attention / Elixir is Zog / Emma Get Wild / Sixteen / Homemade / Forced Love / No Way Out / Bouquet For a Siren / Think (Let Tomorrow Bee) / Flood

Harmacy – LP/CD – Domino/Sub Pop – 1996

This was the final album featuring Bob Fay.  There is a scarce Australian vinyl edition on Fellaheen Records that comes in a 7″ style sleeve and coloured vinyl.  Seems to be pretty scarce.

The Sebadoh – LP/CD – Domino/Sub Pop – 1999

Sebadoh’s final album of the era which saw Bob Fay replaced by Russell Pollard (Later of the New Folk Implosion).  According to Lou this album failed to make much of an impact and saw the band retreat, not to return with new music as a group for another 15 years. 😦

It’s All You / Weird / Bird in the Hand / Break Free / Tree / Nick of Time / Flame / So Long / Love is Stronger / Decide / Colorblind / Thrive / Cuban / Sorry / Drag Down

Defend Yourself – LP/CD/Cassette – Joyful Noise/Domino – 2013

They’re back! Featuring new drummer Bob D’Amico, Sebadoh returned after a long hiatus with a new album and a new US label. There are many different versions of this album with the most interesting being a limited US edition on a tri-colour vinyl plus a free red vinyl 7″ limited to just 500 copies.  Nice.
