DINOSAUR JR continued the early 90s revival at the BENICASSIM FESTIVAL in Spain tonight (August 6).
The reformed grunge icons followed a set by The Lemonheads by rocking the Escenario Verde with the loudest set of the weekend so far.
Highlights included the classics Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Little Fury ThingsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Freak SceneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and their cover of The CureÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Just Like HeavenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, the second time that song has featured on the stage this weekend!
The band Ã¢â‚¬â€œ frontman and guitarist J Mascis, bass player Lou Barlow and drummer Murph – spoke earlier about their reunion this year, which came as a shock to many after Mascis and Barlow fell out following the bandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s third album Ã¢â‚¬â„¢BugÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ in 1988.
Murph told NME.COM: Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have no plans, but weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re enjoying it at the moment.
He added: Ã¢â‚¬Å“WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll do the rest of the shows and then weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll see.Ã¢â‚¬?
And Barlow admitted heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d been shocked at the people who have been coming along to the shows.
He said: Ã¢â‚¬Å“There are older people, but lots of younger people come along too, which is surprising to us.Ã¢â‚¬?
