Dinosaur Jr. back after 15 years
First three albums recently released
Never mind that the original members of ’80 alt-rockers Dinosaur Jr. are back to performing together for the first time in 15 years. The fact that singer-guitarist J Mascis, bassist-singer Lou Barlow and drummer Murph (real name Emmett Jefferson "Patrick" Murphy III) are even speaking to each other is an honour in and of itself.
"An honour? Yeah, that’s a good way of putting it," says Barlow days ahead of the trio’s Phoenix gig on Sunday. "I got kicked out the band 15 years ago, but a lot has happened since then. I just want to let everyone know it’s not all weird and stuff Ã¢â‚¬â€
