a crystal shining forever moment, courtesy of --SEBADOH

sweet, destructive…. turning musical corners at breakneck speed… music with which to mourn the death of human spirit -- SEBADOH

batting monumental indifference, sadly overlooked as creatively inferior bands are basically treated like geniuses and receive enormous recording budgets, bums up to corporate wastemongers -- SEBADOH

staying true to their hardcore roots, rocking against negative boredom, and filling you with dreams of freedom -- SEBADOH

figuratively pissing in your mouth, humiliating and subduing your spirit, exposing every nook and cranny of the human psyche -- way to go, SEBADOH

wallowing in the pissing pig pen of evil, swallowing everyone, reason to ignore it, festering with sex frustration, they don’t use your imagination, they spit it in your face -- ladies and gentleman, --SEBADOH

searching for the lowest common denominator, resorting to tired tales of naughty boy boredom, asking annoying questions and providing  bogus answers, self serving closet fascists, making money from marijuana masturbation, incompetence masquerading as inspiration, inspiration mistaken for true talent, a specter of egocentric behaviour sputtering wildly out of control -- ladies and gentlemen, indierock’s newest unrecognized genius of songwriting sucker punch…  in a minivan for a six week tour -- SEBADOH

making it up as they go along -- SEBADOH

borrowing the vast energy of positive pus monkey, Sebadoh snaps forth with remarkable agility -- nodding solemnly in sad resignation -- three guys who never went to college

taking every opportunity to subtly manipulate your expectations for a moment’s amusement -- becoming suddenly bored at your immature attempt to engage our approval with your typical buttlicking fanboy fervour -- SEBADOH

driving dozens of college age lemmings off the cliff of limited imagination, smashing their soft skulls on the jagged boulders of our bitter sarcasm -- three assholes --SEBADOH

boring you shitless -- yet no one is approaching baldness -- laughing at your shortcomings -- tactlessly wielding destructive honesty to protect themselves from true feeling -- eagerly buttfucking your grandpa -- turning personal vendetta and small minded revenge tactics into eventual cult status - the only man in the world who truly appreciated the genius of the Swans -- LOU BARLOW

rescuing wounded animals and diligently nursing them back to health --and returning them to their woodland homes --SEBADOH [screamed]

putting down everything,
judging all as lame,
but for all their hype as something new,
they play the same old game,
another let down,
another reason to do it yourself,
