I was 13 when I first heard Dinosaur jr. I bought Waynes world 2 sound track because I was into aerosmith at the time and listened to the cd. It sucked the whole lot, except for one song. Out there by Dinosaur jr. It was the best sounding song I’d ever heard. None of my friends were into Dino. They were all into shit and didn’t appreciate what I liked. In school I was into Dino sonic youth the cure smashing pumpkins jesus and mary chain etc. I slowly got myself most of the dino records but still do not have the first album. If it wasn’t for dino I probably wouldn’t had heard of a lot of bands eg. My bloody valentine.
And finally got to see j in March. It’s the best gig I ever saw. He’s been a big influence on me J Mascis, especially with guitar playing. I’m 19 now and still don’t know what the hell I’m gonna do with my life but I’l always listen to Dinasaur jr cause they changed my life.
