J Mascis Learns Not To Cross David In A Guitar Hero Duel

Comedians and Guitar Hero go together like peanut butter and applesauce (try it, it’s delicious); remember the Aziz/Armisen GH duel off the Times Square jumbotron? So, no surprise that this clip sees real life guitar hero J Mascis get spanked by David Cross (who starts the bit by mouthing the host’s lines off her cue… More »

Fancy Footwear For The Well-Heeled Indie Rocker

When Johnny joined forces with Modest Mouse, he upped the band’s “dapper” quotient 100%. Next up for the guitarist? Trans-Atlantic sneaker designer. Johnny religiously dons his PF Flyers before hitting the stage each night, and now he’s designed a shoe with dark blue leather and black accents for the aspiring Marr in you. More »

New Dinosaur Jr Video – “Been There All The Time”

Thurston Moore (sometimes known as Lurch) and his daughter Coco are the guests of honor in Dino Jr’s Matt Dillon-directed clip for “Been There All The Time.” Despite the abundance of names dropped in that lead, it’s a relatively straight-forward living room-jam clip, for a great song, from a phenomenal album. Good luck making your… More »

For Lou Barlow, Email Is A Truly Great Thing

A couple of the best advances in the recent trend toward band reformation come thanks to Lou Barlow, setting aside well-documented differences with both Eric Gaffney and J. Mascis to breathe some vitality into the beloved bands Sebadoh and Dinosaur Jr. But add this to The Police, Genesis, and a host of others, and thi… More »

New Dinosaur Jr – “Been There All The Time”

Head to Dinosaur Jr’s MySpace to hear another track off of a record that we’re getting more anxious to hear by the day. Like “Almost Ready,” “Been There All The Time” is another thick and fuzzy slab of melodic ’80s college rock showing that, 19 years after Bug, J Mascis still knows how to incinerate… More »

New Dinosaur Jr – “Almost Ready”

The first track from J Mascis and crew’s forthcoming eighth album is a door-busting slab of classic college radio guitar rock. J’s working the frets, overdrive on way-overdrive, killer melodies all around. (Grab it at P4K). And just like that, we believe in Beyond. Where maybe these pictures had us questioning our faith. Or thinking… More »
