Duo comprised of John Davis and Lou Barlow, of Sebadoh fame. Scored a hit with their single "Natural One" from their soundtrack for Larry Clark's movie Kids.

The Folk Implosion's albums include:
Take a Look Inside the Folk Implosion, 1994
Kids Soundtrack, 1995
Dare to be Surprised, 1997
One Part Lullaby, 1999

An excellent combination of fat bass riffs, twangy guitar and the occasional sarcastic acoustic ballad. The band was originally conceived and created by Lou Barlow of Sebadoh and Dinosaur Jr and John Davis; former member of Palace Brothers. Beyond the single Natural One on the Kids soundtrack, they have other great works to choose from.

I saw the band last night at ‘The Bottom of the Hill’ in San Francisco and learned that John Davis has retired, but that Lou Barlow plans to carry on The Folk Implosion.
