Beck and Sebadoh: It's Saturday, It's Two O'Clock and It's... Slackerjack!

Everett True, Melody Maker, 26 November 1994

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Get BECK, the blue-eyed, wigged-out Californian space baby whose slacker anthem 'Loser' topped the American charts, together with Lou Barlow of SEBADOH – the abstruse guru of American lo-fi, who himself wrote a song called 'Losercore'. Concepts? We got 'em! Okay, says EVERETT TRUE, I thought it up, why don't you kill me?
