Sebadoh - Special Elitist Mail-Order Single
Released right before Harmacy, Sebadoh seemed to be making fun of Sub Pop with this one. Despite the name, it was not part of any Sub Pop Singles Club, or anything like that.
It's a strange release. Not much Lou, really. Two Jason songs, and unusual covers on the B-Side. Jason's "Princess" is quite good, one of his best songs. The B-side is all covers of surrealist/experimentalist 70's New Orleans band The Residents. They're strange. "Act Of Being Polite" has some sort of quirky cool thing that fits with Sebadoh's sound.
A: Princess, 1/2 Undressed
B: Act of Being Polite, Moisture, Suburban Bathers
