Everybody Lets Me Down

J. Masics Performs Live
If somebody asked you who invented Grunge tell them it was J. Mascis. With his band Dinsoaur Jnr, Mascis created the template for the Grunge explosion in the mid 80’s, long before most people could find Seattle on the map.
A recent Dinosaur Jnr compilation was called Ear Bleedin’ Country. Has a record ever had a more honest title? The Dinosaur template was one choc full of fuzz tone guitars, a ramshackle cacophony that had an exhilarating, intoxicating chaos that drove it on.
And then there is J. Masics at the middle of it. Frustrated drummer, reluctant guitar hero, reclusive front man and sorcerer of sound.
Dinosaur Jnr. called it quits in the mid 90’s and since then Mascis has pursued his music alone with his mythical band The Fog.

hey mr.Squiggle, thanks for the fantastic hint
It’s great to listen to an interview with J – apart from the rather usual, there are some details about the damage in Bob’s place and & the two songs are really fine acoustic versions
as I don’t know how to make good mp3’s out of real streams, it’s great that you made some thanks a lot !!! … anthony is the keeper of FreeSoFree.net, where he’s collecting live & rare Dino/ J stuff, well – I’d love to see the interview & the songs there :aliensmile:
