    Hi everyone

    New to Dinosaur Jr. I’m 29 years old and a music nerd for many years. I was 9 when Lou left the band. I’ve known the name Dinosaur Jr. for years, although I haven’t heard any songs. Many bands I listened to during the 90ies named Dino as one of their influences but it took me till 2009 to check out one of their songs. Saw J, Murph and Lou in Switzerland around 3 weeks ago and I was blown away. A day later I went to my local CD shop and bought all Dino albums.
    I can’t stop listening to this incredible band, Farm is on non-stop rotation at the moment. Can’t understand it that it took me 29 years to find this jewel :) Dinosaur Jr. puts all other reunion bands to shame, so I desperately hope Farm won’t be the last album.

    I didn’t, probably one of the occasions I heard the name Dinosaur Jr. Envy everybody who saw them at the time.

    I’m frankly quite happy you listed Kyuss before QOTSA.
