I bought a mixer and 2 new mics last year, set up a studio space, using the 1990-era Tascam Porta two 4-track, mixed to cassette, then direct to a (new) CD Recorder, which i'm very happy with.

FAN LETTERS, BLOGS, AND REVIEWS

RE: SEBADOH REUNION TOUR

WOW! i suppose I should be honored, or is that horrified to read this blog war regarding our Noise Pop performance at the Great American Music hall show. No one seemed to notice 2007 was the 100th Anniversary of GAMH... and Cafe Du Nord. 2 of my favorite spots.

SEATTLE WEEKLY

Seattle (hmm... i thought the show was fun, solid, and rocking in all respects... but YES= we were on 3+1/2 hrs sleep, after Vancouver/Customs, and played at Triple Door (KEXP event) that afternoon.)

STRANGER (Seattle)

Portland Mercury

SEBADOH, THE BENT MOUSTACHE (Berbati's Pan, 10 SW 3rd) Underneath my graduation gown of San Dieguito High School's Class of '96 (Go Mustangs!), I was wearing a Sebadoh T-shirt. To say I was a teenage Sebadoh fan would be a severe understatement. I wrote Lou Barlow letters (to which he never responded) and penned lengthy fanzine articles about how Bakesale was not such a grand departure from Bubble and Scrape. Granted, obsessively following Sebadoh was like kryptonite to the opposite sex, but I was content in my fanboy lifestyle, knowing that I'd most likely lose my virginity by the time the band reunited with original drummer Eric Gaffney in the year 2007. While I was right about the whole reunion thing, sadly I am still looking for the special girl who will take my tender flower. Sigh. EZRA ACE CARAEFF

... from PORTLAND, OR.

...for being so cool when we said hi after the show in portland. Being humble will only get you so far, though- in order to be a true rock star, you should work on being dismissive and snobby. Lou barlow should thank you for letting him ride your coat tails and being able to tour again. I mean, dinosaur who? Exactly- this will last a lifetime, so fuck him. The fans who buy your albums don't matter, remember that! Show nothing but contempt for them. Thanks again.

...from ST LOUIS

Eric or whomever reads this,

I feel like a dick. I have never bought any of your music. I thought I knew SebaDoh, until I found your website, ironically via ‘the Sebadoh III re-release deal? I want to buy your records now, you have the sound I was drawn to originally? its like when I found out santa claus was a scam or when GB took office, whichever you prefer?how could Lou and Jason take all the limelite, keep the name Sebadoh and sap the Sebadoh juices to the sad ironically self titled sputtering LAST record??the sebadoh? or AKA the great rock and roll swindle part 2??? Where do I start? With albums, songs etc I liked the mp3's a lot.

Sincerely feelin? duped,

from the guy who tried to get the drunk off the stage in Eugene, OR

Thanks for including Eugene on your tour. I was thinking though, as were others last night, and maybe you even heard or thought something to this effect. The last Sebadoh album was 1999. So maybe, go with me on this, your fan base stopped growing around then. So now your population of fans is aging and while we were once in college, some of us now have jobs and even kids that we love and want to help take care of. So like maybe we need to get up early in the morning. When the opening band didn't go on until 9:30 and then unleashed all their sarcastic shit which might have been cool fifteen years ago, it left a few people mad because some might be thinking of bed and why in the hell are we torturing ourselves and was Sebadoh really all that great? I would think that maybe you guys would actually want to get out a bit earlier too and do whatever you would feel like. I left around midnight right when Jason went to the guitar. I'm glad I stayed to see you but I wish that I could have seen the whole thing for which I paid and not have been sitting around for an hour and a half thinking about reading to my son or wanting to throw eggs at the Bent Moustache. Maybe it's just Eugene. We're not exactly a 24 hour party town. Whatever, it was good, but I'm left wondering if going on so late might not work against you one day.

fan's blog, re: Troubadour

Sunday, March 11, 2007 Sebadoh Current mood: tired What a slammin' weekend I've had. I'll simply highlight the highlight of my weekend. Thursday night Dan and I flew into LAX and drove to Pasadena, checked into the Westin there.. very nice. The next day Dan dropped me off on Melrose Ave in LA so I could blow 5 hours shopping while he had a meeting with clients. It was a very different experience for me. If you've ever been to LA you'd know what I mean. It's crowded and busy and wicked trendy. I had a nice time and met some friendly people. Then Dan picked me up and we drove to the Sheraton at LAX where we had a suite. After we rested for a while we went back to LA to go see Sebadoh at the Troubador. We went to this really great restaurant there called Skewers. Wicked delish Tandoor chicken skewers, great house merlot too! Then the Sebadoh show... the opening band was sadly to say--- dreadful. I felt for them, really I did. But really... gawd what a spazz/twat. Do me a favor and pronounce that as if you were on holiday in the UK.

Anyways, Sebadoh came on and all was right with the world. They played three encores and they were spot on. Beautiful guitars, beautiful drumming. Absolutely monumental show. All the cheer and "fucking with you" humor was there. They even played "just gimme indie rock", so wonderful. Eric Gaffney has apparently gone through some sort of transformation. He was described to me as a 6'3 angry redhead drummer who was occasionally known to leave the middle of a show on a whim. But he was surprisingly charming and played the guitar and drums with the precision of a mercedes-benz engine tuning boutique (ok, a little gawdy metaphor never hurt anyone). Lou and Jason were spot on as well and played beautifully. I'm so happy to have finally seen them and really happy they've re-joined so that others can share in the experience. "rescuing wounded animals and diligently nursing them back to health and returning them to their woodland homes... SEBADOH! "

Troubadour...

Hey Eric,

Good to meet you the other night. So, I really wanted to post a thorough review of the show at Spaceland on my blog, but I was inspired by my muse. You have to remember the huge drunk asshole on the left side of the stage who was clapping and shouting and being a dick. That was my former nemesis Justin Williams of crappy Thermals rip-off band The Talk formerly of Charlotte, NC where I just moved from a few months ago. He moved around the same time and I was really surprised to see him standing 3 feet in front of me at the show. Then, halfway though the show my girlfriend got sick and we had to leave. So, I didn’t even get to see the whole show. I hope Justin didn’t do anything toooooo drastic. He sure likes to throw punches when he’s drunk. I posted a link to an article about him on my blog ?he was on tour with the Fall and threw a banana peel at Mark E. Smith?

But I really enjoyed it and it was good to meet you guys. I’m originally from New Hampshire, so I’m always excited to run into northerners. If you want to link my blog to your site or anything then that’d be great?I’ll do the proper review next time. Cheers! Brian

from Sydney

hi there sebadoh (if this is really you), hope you're well. just a quick hello from sydney. i was introduced to your music by my slightly crazy uncle when i was 11 or 12 i think?? and i just wanted to say that you guys are the main reason i began to smoke pot. and i still smoke a little these days, so you could say you've seriously altered my life. it's been good though, weird but enjoyable. really like that re-issue thingy on domino, took me back. anyhoo, take care morgan

"I saw Sebadoh play back in 1994 and they were pretty cool. Lou Barlow totally freaked out, much to my amusement. I'm reliably informed that ERIC GAFFNEY used to be in them. I'd never had known only I have his 'Uncharted Waters' CD playing at the moment.

It consists of an astonishing 27 tracks. Most of which completely passed me by. That's not to say they're not interesting, however there are the odd few that made my ears prick up with one in particular reminding me of Lou Reed /Velvet Underground. Okay I can't remember what it's called and I can't be arsed skipping through all the tracks.

It's a lot more mature sounding than the raw youthful energy of Sebodoh. That's what happens as time passes by you see. We get older and shrivel up and lose our energy. Unless of course you happen to be Iggy pop who just shriveled up but has more energy than my 2 year old son. He was running around the stage like a man possessed at The Stooges show at ATP.

Anyway there are some intelligent well constructed songs on here recorded between 1998 and 2005. Gaffney aint half bad on the old guitar either. On Handmade Records.

NOTES ON RECORDING 'BRILLIANT CONCERT NUMBERS'; The majority of instrumentation/vocals were recorded direct to older Tascam Porta Two 4-track with the meters, or with one Shure SM-58, and all mixed directly onto dat tape in one 24 hour period last Spring. All of the album's instruments were played solo and mostly one at a time, including, but not limited to; '73 Gibson L6-S, and SG, Mexican Fender Strat, '74 Fender P-Bass, "Made-in-Japan" drum kit with Zildjian/Paiste cymbals, Plastic Organ, marimba, upright piano, Xylophone, MXR pedals, + Bermuda maracas. The first twelve were recorded 1994-'98, and but three previous to 1993. This CD is partly a result of "Lights Up and Spins Around" Cassette, of which 100 were distributed.

"Hudson River Landing" and "Invisible Hands" are songs salvaged from mixes selected from an unreleased fourteen song record, at Funhouse studio on 4th Street in New York, June-July, '96. This was an 8-track studio; the drums I used were Bob Bert's, a Fender Bassman, and an amp Patti Smith left there. I put notes on tape over the bass neck. Both are with acoustic and electric guitar, and the latter, an older tune I thought to record after finding 'Hank Snow Sings Sacred Songs' on vinyl at the Mountain Farms Mall flea Market.

"The Other Day" and "Dead Piano Place" were all partly recorded in a basement summer '98, and later completed with overdubs upstairs, including an upright piano. The first of these, with the backing track sped up some, first appeared on a CD Compilation with COOL BEANS 'zine in San Francisco.

"1983" was written for GREY MATTER, in that year, and performed at various hall shows, and was later recorded in 1994-95 with a broken hi-hat stand in the former Pro-Bush factory building, as was "All Sides", completed four years later, and "Moonlight," one of the five instrumentals here, and featuring the Gibson L6-S and SG Guitars.

"Xylophone," was a metal xylophone multi-tracked with an added found sound of LP on 16rpm, and edited with a layered broken plastic organ that held notes when plugged in, backwards bells and guitar, marimba. This was from 1989 as was "Reverb Subway Train," utilizing a Reverb box machine.

The other non-originals, "Rebel Waltz," and "No Expectations," were recorded at a house in the summer of '93, between Sebadoh tours, with acoustic, voice, percussion, UKELIN, and wood train whistle. img

Reviews of Cosmic Chicken & Egg

"Some artists need high-fidelity sound equipment to sound good, while other artists sound great no matter the audio format. Eric Gaffney falls into the latter category... The album starts off with chiming guitars on "All Alone Again." A pleasant melody is paired with dark lyrics, "All Alone Again, on my own again, I am hard to take, so leave me be."... One of the new songs that really shines is the song "Losers in the Living Room." It is an anthem about hating your roommates. It matches the greatness of anything from Bubble and Scrape. This collection of songs will please old school fans and new comers alike. I love the hand made quality of CD-Rs. The art work features wonderful xeroxography, but an artist such as Gaffney really deserves a proper release. The only thing that is missing from this disc is Gaffney's great sound pieces. I look forward to hearing them on future releases."
-Dan Cohoon,
Amplitude=Frequency Squared

Hey Eric, You probably think I'm the biggest douche ever, 'cause I keep saying I'm going to write about your record and then I never do. But check it out: it's sitting on my desk right here, and I really am going to review it just as soon as I can. Sorry I keep pushing it back. The saddest thing is that I like yr record so much better than all the shit I have to write about in front of it. You know, deadlines for Staind, Scott Stapp, Disturbed - oy! So I promise I'm going to get to it soon. In the meantime know that I particularly dig "Yours is the music for No Instrument" and "Drifts on Thru." Are you using the same guitar/amp setup as back in the day? It sounds so much like all that old stuff, but also somehow new. -Johnny Loftus, ALL MUSIC GUIDE

a Few Fan Reviews (thanks)

Hey Eric, I got the cd's about a week ago. I just wanted to write you real quick and say thanks a lot. I love them! I can't decide on a favorite, though. I just keep playing them over and over again. Anyways, hope you are doing well, and please keeping making great music! -Clint McKinney

Hi there Been a fan of your music since I bought Sebadoh III in 1993. What's the best way to buy 3 of your cds (Brilliant Concert Numbers, Nature Walk and Cosmic Chicken & Egg)from here in the UK, or well, Cyprus as I am emigrating there soon? Take care, and good luck with your future projects, Per

But, if I did get a hamster, I'd name it "Eric Gaffney, formerly of Sebadoh's Omnipotent Effervescent Philly-Cheesesteak Punkrock Flouride-enhanced kosher fishwich-eating pedal-hopping value sized Denny's Waitress from Planet Dust with the qualities of a bewildered MIT graduate with a barrel full of dirty laundry and no indierock cred serving shark's fin soup to everyone".

Reviews of Nature Walk

"Eric Gaffney. Remember that guy? He helped start THE prototypical indie rock band, Sebadoh... Fast-forward to now, and we are given Gaffney’s latest effort, Fields of Gaffney’s Nature Walk . He’s most recently relocated to San Fran and set up shop, all the while dodging record deals, and accumulating more indie-rock cred then any one human has ever been able to amass." "A couple songs to note are “Wanna Be With You, which has a Ramones/Sex Pistols “Submission" feel to it. And there’s my hit-single favorite, “Accelerated, which sounds like good 60s psych. Not that hippy-dippy, bad country music crap. This totally goes against my indie-rock, lo-fi premise, but if I could have a Marvel What-If Moment, it would be to hear “Accelerated" with Gaffney on vocals and backed by some heavy band with a Kyuss sound, lashing out some monster guitar riffs. Probably not a good idea in the end, because it more than likely would make all other songs ever created obsolete and implode the universe." "Overall, the songs on Nature Walk are a bit calmer and more thought out than most that were set forth earlier in Gaffney’s career. Perhaps having his own band is what he needed to be able to sit down and craft music in his own likeness. So I say, “Hey, Mr. Big Label jerk-ass, you can keep your musical offerings by Mr. Malkmus, Mr. Pollard, and Mr. Barlow, and just gimmie Gaffney rock!? --Frank Bridges, Delusions of Adequacy

"Weirder and more wonderful, a luminous starburst of fuzzy, distorted guitars, tremulous harmonies and frantic punk rock energy." -Splendid

"The album opens with "Push It Up To Me," which has this Marvin Gaye feel to it that I can't quite explain. It's catchy and I feel like I should be walking in slow motion through a bowling alley in 1975 or something. I love the phased guitars, and I love the female backing vocals on the "You can do anything, do anything that you want" chorus. It's always ballsy to open an album with a cover track, if you ask me. This album showcases Gaffney's abilities as a songwriter. It's a sign that he's back and as good as ever... Fields of Gaffney will become a household name in the years to come." -Foxy Digitalis

All Music Guide (AMG) Nature Walk review AMG review

"An instantly personal statement, suggesting Gaffney's work with Sebadoh at every turn, but also renewing and refining his odd genius...an affable stroll back into listeners' lives by a guy who never should have left." -Johnny Loftus, All Music Guide

"Gaffney's latest material is more tuneful than some of his old Sebadoh stuff, yet plenty abraded by shambolic fuzz and psychedelic weirdness. A welcome comeback for an oddball savant." -Michael Alan Goldberg, Seattle Stranger

"A few of the songs here have a more psychedelic bent... but for the most part, the songs are relatively straightforward and very enjoyable." -Indiepages.com

"Eric Gaffney made his name in the 90s by helping to form Sebadoh , perhaps the archetypal indie rock band. He was most notable for his sense of experimentalism, and his songs were generally energetic, loud blasts of noisy experimentation. The songs on " Nature Walk " echo Gaffney's variable musical leanings, ranging from conventional rockers ( Broke Up ), to fuzzy pop ( Gates of Steel ), to ethereal mood pieces." ( Cold Weather ) -Cianan Delahunty, Halo 17

"What Nature Walk does have going for it is the return of a real voice of good old indie rock. Eric Gaffney was and is a full-on 4-tracking, pedal-stomping, pot-infused proponent of the grunge-folk mixture that made Sebadoh 3 one of the most amazing albums ever. As if stepping out of a cave of ice, Eric carries on from that record, almost completely bypassing the few Sebadoh albums after 3 that he worked on, focusing on the pop sensibility rather than the lysergic vision." -Grant, Indie Workshop.com

"Trippy, eccentrically psychotropic music ... There's nothing like down jackets and heavy wool sweater to get the love light burning." -Splendid's Top Winter Songs, December 2003

"You may remember Eric Gaffney as Sebadoh's co-founder. He's got another group, a trio called Fields of Gaffney, which is tuneful and psychedelic." -Jim Sullivan, Boston Globe

“Primitive, haunting and strange as a three-legged duck?-Joe S. Harrington, Magnet

“BRILLIANT CONCERT NUMBERS is a slice of benevolent despotism.–Eric Bensel, ALTERNATIVE PRESS

“From the sound of it maybe it is a good thing Eric left Sebadoh because this stuff is fantastic.?-amplitude equals one frequency squared

"Seething pop, plastic rock." -PARASOL

"Clearly of the Gaffney pedigree" -SCRATCH

hey eric, just wanted to say thanks for the music and the flyers. i got a kick out of the 'lights up and spins around' blurb...did you go by that, or did they just have no clue? hope all's well and hope to hear some new stuff soon. any chance of more one-man-band stuff like brilliant concert #s in the meantime? your drumming is out of control good. keep it up, man. you're one of the best. thanks again, greg

"Gaffney has returned to home-recording roots, and described his band as "low budget but not lo-fi." -Sara Sherr, Philadelphia Daily News

BIOGRAPHY

FIELDS OF GAFFNEY, October, 2002


Eric Gaffney - Guitar, Vocals
Jessica Cowley - Bass, Vocals
Richard Marshall - Drums

Music Bio (*n progress, under construction)

Here's a bit about how I got started playing music;

PREFACE; 1st DRUM SET; 1973 red sparkle muppet-style 3-piece (no floor tom)w. one cymbal that i have to this day and sounds trashy and good, short decay. I broke the pedal in '76, wrote my first lyrics, and started playing drums with earphones to LP records around '79 when I got a silver sparkle-70's Slingerland snare as a present from my dad. my set up era 1980; brass timbales on precarious cowbell stand, old broken kick drum as a floor tom, chinese woodblocks, 60's zildjians, ludwig hi-hat stand... w. christmas lights on it.

1st SHOW: I was first listed on a bill in May, 1978 as part of the Asparagus Valley Music Ensemble... (a family affair) I sat in the audience instead... there was a John Cage piece w. radios in the set that night.

1st acoustic Christmas '79...by 1980 i had gradually tuned the strings so high i broke the bridge off and tried to glue it back down.

1st ELECTRIC; 1981. Sears 60's no-name sunburst, cool shape/cutaway, played terribly. $50 off the wall at Tepper's in N'ton (now Pleasant St. Video)I accumulated lots of stickers on it. Now in the Mill River, Florence, MA.

1st amp also acquired in 1981; 1959 Sears Silvertone No. 1432, (Chicago blues amp)

1st PERFORMANCE; July 16, 1983 at the'Guiding Star' Grange Hall,Greenfield, MA. with Adrenalin O.D. from NJ. (find their "Suburbia" single-ep..massive guitar sound) + local W.Mass hardcore bands...w. GREY MATTER, (Daniel Hartling, Andy Darby, Dan Ryan, + me) a unique band I started a year previous that started as thrash and slowed down and became melodic and interesting over the course of five months. I played drums and wrote most of the lyrics. Before our second show, in September, 1983, opening for THE BIG BOYS (Austin, TX.) we acquired a girl bass player (Lisa Fusco) and started to sound alot better, but played less than 10 more shows and it was over. Last show was w. Jerry's Kids who used Lisa, our bass player's amp and Rick blew the speaker and our Lisa quit after that. We had a tape out which is when i started selling my tapes + zine at Main Street Records. We also recorded 5 songs in a Northampton, MA. studio Nov, 1983, but it was never officially released. (it was on "Welcome to 1984" cassette tape)

ZINE; I had a 50-cent fanzine, WITHDRAWAL, 3 issues, from '83-84, with interviews, drawings, news clippings, letters. I got letters from all over the place including one from "Donny The Punk."

MAXIMUM ROCK N ROLL

I also wrote a few (3) Western Mass. scene reports w. photos, for Maximum Rock and Roll 1983-85.

I played drums in lots of other bands through the 80's, one of which was B.I.U.,(with Tom Chasteen (now a Hip Hop producer) and John Kimbrough, who years later started Walt Mink.) I first played guitar onstage at a local hardcore band day show, Easthampton, Mass., Summer, 1984 with CATHARSIS.

Then in 1986; "The Gracefully Aging Hippy Soloists" a duo, electric guitar and drums, with the late Charles Ondras (of Boss Hog), high school friend and neighbor. I put out a 90-minute tape, all live recordings. I sang and played a G&L and SG along with an early 80's Moog synth that generated messed-up noize most of the time, and a cheap mic, all plugged into a Fender Champ which we had to plugged into the barn ceiling light fixture.

SEBADOH; In Jan 1987, Lou Barlow and I began practicing for local shows I booked at Hampshire and Smith College, for "Sentridoh," which was Lou and his songs and ukelele and me on various percussion.

Summer 1987, cross country Greyhound bus ride, then to WDC/Arlington, VA. for a month, lived and practiced with GOBBLEHOOF w. Tim Aaron, Jens Jurgeson, 'Doug' our singer, and then re-formed in Northampton with J Mascis on drums, Jan. 1988. I ended up playing bass and singing and we played 2 shows at Hampshire College after which I moved out and focused on 4-track recordings that would become "The Freed Man" original 30-minute cassette.

SEBADOH INCARNATION Lou and I mixed, then assembled "The Freed Man" cassette (30 min. Radio Shack lo-noise tape) the following summer which was a collaborative effort with songs we were writing on 4-track.

I duplicated these at home, and sold them at Main Street Records in Northampton, MA. for $1.00 each in a box covered with Dr. Seuss artwork. We sent a tape to Sonic Youth, Gerard Cosloy, who favorably reviewed it in Conflict and signed us to a 3-record deal Homestead in Feb. 1989.

My first record was on Sonic Life, split-single with Big Stick, then Freed Man LP, Sept, 1989, then the Magic Ribbons (Leopard Gecko) box set, red vinyl, followed by the Vertical single-EP... Jason joined in 1989. Recorded Sebadoh III March, 1991.

In '92 signed with Sub Pop, Domino, and City Slang in 1992, put out EP's and records, toured 91..92..93...including shows with Firehose in '91, UK dates and a European tour w. The Wedding Present through spring '92, Pavement/Sonic Youth '92, and Glastonbury, England and 2 U.S. tours inc. Lollapalooza '93 I left a few months before 'Bakesale' and then Kurt Cobain died."

After which, I bought a 4-track and instruments, played solo shows in the northeast (NY and MA)recorded, bought a 4-track and guitars, nearly signed to Sub Pop, Atlantic, and Domino but didn't. Instead I ended up putting out my music myself, eventually.

I started "Fields of Gaffney" Summer, 1998 in Northampton, with Jeff Halpin on drums, and Robyn (Janice, my ex-wife) on guitar after I had released "Lights Up & Spins Around," a cassette of new material, Summer, 1998. We played CMJ at Coney Island High (now defunct) 2 shows w. Royal Trux, a show w. Buffalo Tom, one with Major Stars, Danielson Family...and a few more shows.

In September, 1999, ten years to the date of Freed Man LP release, Atlanta-based label Old Gold released "Brilliant Concert Numbers", a collection of solo 4-track and studio recordings spanning the 90's.

Favorable reviews followed in Alternative Press and Magnet, among others, and the record made top 20 lists on college radio (including KAOS, Olympia and WMBR, Cambridge)

January, 2000, Sub Pop's first release was a 'Singles Club' limited 7" featuring "Cold Weather" and "Twilight," recorded at Slaughterhouse (where 1/2 of Smash yr Head and 1/2 of Bubble & Scrape was recorded)

Moved to San Francisco in 2000; re-started the group in January, 2002 with Richard Marshall (played guitar in Alice Donut) on bass and a cast of rotating drummers (inc. Brendan from New Zealand's Subliminals, Flying Nun)

A new line up began in July, 2002, with Richard switching to drums + Jessica Cowley (Pillows, Run For Cover Lovers) joined us on bass guitar and vocal accompaniment.

In March, 2003, we played Noise Pop at Cafe Du Nord, S.F., then released "Nature Walk" CD to coincide with a performance at SXSW and tour of Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and California. Two Northwest tours followed, including stops in Eureka, Eugene, Portland, Olympia, Seattle, and Arcata.
