I can take or leave DINO JR.

The only song of theirs I ever was whole hog on was "Freakscene"

Green Mind is a killer album. Other than that they had some other good songs I can't remember right now.

Dinosaur Jr a great band who's muddy, feedback sound paved way for the grunge bands that followed, also win extra coolness points for being signed on Greg Ginn's SST label for a short while.

I remember them, they were ok. But, as a whole I never really got into alterative, a few bands stick out to me here and there, but most of its take or leave.

I used to love them, but sold off their stuff. I've been meaning to pick them up again, but it's not top priority stuff.

Cool fact: Mascis is one of my best friend's cousin. I got to meet him a few times back in the day before she moved to San Diego.

Sure. He always seemed cool. I've never been one to pester musicians or famous people. I just let him do his thing. I met him twice, I think, or three times, always at family cookouts/gatherings.

I was young also, a teenager, so I really didn't care who the hell he was. Haha.

Just now hearing Dinosaur Jr for the first time. I never knew they were so dischordant and noisy...I like it. I assumed by the name and album covers that it was more 90s/Alt/Grunge stuff...I saw them included on a list of Shoegaze type bands and decided to check into them since it was a name I knew. Some of his screaming vocals are almost Black Metal...haha! I did not realize how much Sludge they had in their sound...

YouTube is my friend.

OK, so that one song off of Bug is the only one I've come across so far that was THAT dischordant and noisy...other stuff has been more pop...but I like it. Just listened to a newer song (I assume, since Mascis is all white-haired now) called "Over It"...I liked it.

Great...one more band to add to my "get stuff by these guys" pile...haha!

The SST albums are "heavier". Starting with "Green Mind" (my personal favorite) they (he) added more melody to the mix.

OK, I've heard this song "Feel The Pain" before...I never knew who it was...I can hear the showgaze influences in it...cool stuff.

Grab the 'Bug' 'You're Living All Over me' and 'Without a Sound' great sludgefest moments in rock history, never thought of the shoe glaze influence til you brought up Shawn.

I mean, it's not strict shoegaze, but the influence is in there...

I knew what meant, you made it very clear, it just I never picked up on it, til you mentioned it, shoegaze is a genre I know very little about, so I thought it was interesting observation regarding Dinosaur Jr's influence on that style of music.

Right. Cool.

I'll be hitting the used store tomorrow...I know I've seen some Dinosaur Jr in there before. But my list of bands I want is so huge, it may not get bumped up.

Love these guys. I sold their stuff in the Air Force, but have slowly been adding them back into my collection. I'd forgotten how great they were. They were a favorite of mine as a teen and into my 20s. Still are, I guess.

Never gave these guys a thought, but I'm a fan of J. Mascis' other side project Witch. Cool stoner/doomy goodness, if you're so inclined.

Its from 1991 so I assume it comprises the early more aggressive/noisy stuff...plus it's single/ep stuff so it's probably weird.

It's pretty good. It's got a couple album cuts, if I remember correctly. A mellow acoustic tune, and...three covers, I think. One is really heavy, an old punk cover...I think.

Eh. I don't own it anymore (I should), so I may be wrong. Either way, it's a good place to start. Cheap. Haha. If you dig the EP, you should dig most of their stuff.
