Home / Biography / Sentridoh



Sometimes simpler is way better, that is definitely the situation with Lou Barlow’s lo-fi task, Sentridoh. Barlow (previous bassist for Dinosaur Jr. and innovative drive behind Sebadoh) created Sentridoh being a single task in 1993 in order that he could pursue a stripped-down acoustic type of the music that he previously performed with Sebadoh. Sentridoh’s initial single, “Losercore/Actually Insane,” was also the 1st record released by Steve Shelley’s HAS THE AROMA OF Records, setting up the tone for this label’s support of performers who were stretching out their personal limitations. That single as well as the albums that implemented, like Small Brother’s Mysterious Sentridoh EP, also released in 1993, and two albums released in 1995, Shedding Losers (Shrimper) and Lou Barlow and His Acoustic Sentridoh (HAS THE AROMA OF Information), highlighted Barlow’s professional songwriting and heartbreaking lyrics, supported only by electric guitar and, occasionally, a little handful of various other instruments. Free of charge Sentridoh Music From Loobiecore, a fresh collection of monitors from all around the Sentridoh’s profession (including brand-new recordings) premiered in 2002.
