This is a cover of a pre-Grunge solo recording by Lou Barlow which I heard in 1992 because I knew people in university who were much much cooler than me and knew about music. It has always stuck in my mind as the perfect thing to do with a four-track in a bedroom, and everytime I try to write a song I wish I could write Losercore. So I played this cover (from memory) to get it out of my system. This is the real thing. Turns out I didn’t remember very much of it. Anyway I’m not sure Lou Barlow even remembered much of it as I called out for it at a gig at the Duchess in 1993 and what he played bore very little resemblance to this track, just enough to show he was reinventing it on the spot like a genius.
