Sebadoh are an American indie rock band, currently signed with Joyful Noise Recordings. Formed in 1986 in Westfield, Massachusetts by Eric Gaffney and Dinosaur Jr. bass player Lou Barlow. Along with such bands as Pavement and Guided by Voices, Sebadoh helped pioneer lo-fi music, a style of indie rock characterized by low-fidelity recording techniques, often on four-track machines. The band's early output, such as 1990's Weed Forestin' and 1991's Sebadoh III, was typical of this style. (Read more at Wikipedia.)

Peel regularly played tracks from Sebadoh releases following Lou Barlow's departure from Dinosaur Jr., as well as from the bass player's other projects, including Lou Barlow & His Sentridoh and Folk Implosion.
