J Mascis

Dinosaur Jr.

Master Volumes are killing guitar sounds. I'm happy you made the 100 Watt handwired reissue. I'm glad I can buy a new amp now that sounds right."

This highly influential three-piece alternative rock band was formed in Amherst, Mass., USA in 1984 and was initially simply called Dinosaur until legal issues forced a name change to Dinosaur Jr. Led by songwriter, J. Mascis (guitar, vocals), the band was quick to make a lasting impact on the then infant Amercian alternative rock scene. The group broke-up in 1997 but thankfully the original line-up reformed again in 2005. J's distinctive guitar work, fueled by gobs of high gain and brilliant use of feedback continues to be a major influence on the genre. A book entitled 'Dinosaur Jr. by Dinosaur Jr', was recently released and is both a revealing and fascinating read for any fan.
