Description

Deluxx is Bob Fay (Sebadoh) and Mark Perretta; Folk Implosion were Lou Barlow (Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh) and John Davis. The first collaboration between the four musicians was at a show in Providence, Rhode Island under the name The John Davis Folk Implosion. The "band" played a combination of off-the-cuff compositions John and Lou had hastily recorded a few months before and songs that would be later re-recorded by Sebadoh on Bakesale (1994). The show and the jams that followed solidified the collaboration.

Deluxx Folk Implosion became its own entity, quickly morphing into an aggressive garage punk outfit: Nonsensical lyrics over twin guitar attacks and pounding drums rounding it out perfectly. Maybe it was the pressures surrounding the popularity of Sebadoh and Folk Implosion that made DFI a unique opportunity to focus on the immediate pleasures of a 90-second structured tantrum. Maybe DFI wanted to seize the moment, wear black turtlenecks and affect the pose of a forgotten '66 garage band. Maybe DFI just wanted to combine new wave angles, heavy metal chunks and punk scree. Fueled by headache, weed and the introduction of higher alcohol content beers, DFI push the levels of absurdity in the songs and energy in the delivery. After Folk Implosion's unexpected radio hit "Natural One" (1995), the Deluxx Folk Implosion played a handful of high profile shows in support of the record, since it was too much for John and Lou.

DFI had two recording sessions. The first is represented in its entirety on this LP - 13 songs, many written as they were recorded in 1994. The second session was a single song re-recording of "Daddy Never Understood" that was included on the Kids soundtrack (1995). A 7" with some tunes from the initial session was released at the time. The reels for the 13 song session languished in Lou's basements and attics for 20 years. When Perretta suggested a proper release, the reel tapes were restored and remixed (with Justin Pizzoferrato and Bob Fay at the controls).
