apparently i’ve been on here 8 months. Didn’t bother with an introduction as i just thought i’d be looking through the discussions from time to time, instead i’ve found myself loving this site and checking all the new discussions frequently 🙂
i’m 16, so i may lack in Dino knowledge from the past, but i love coming here and learning new facts about the band.
i first listened to Dinosaur Jr when my friend had mentioned them and i remembered the name, so i gave Farm a listen since it was their latest album. i loved the guitar noise and amount of guitar on the album, especially tracks like Plans and Friends – apparently i dig bands with a lot of guitar. i then bought YLAOM and listened to it on a week long trip to Wales – i couldn’t get over how good it was, Raisans and Tarpit instantly became my favourite songs 🙂 i remember getting back and immediately searching how many more Dino albums there were….to my relief there were plenty more, from then on i just couldn’t stop listening to them.
anyway, this place is so cool to visit as it keeps me entertained so i thank all of you 🙂July 2, 2013 at 9:39 pm #140219
Hi, I started with Where you been…and now im a addict !July 3, 2013 at 2:05 pm #140220
What other bands do you like?
I`ve been into Dino for over 20 years.Bug is my favorite albumJuly 3, 2013 at 3:21 pm #140221
anything alt rock is my thing really – pixies, sonic youth, meat puppets, janes addiction, alice in chains, smashing pumpkins, jesus lizard, minor threat, my bloody valentine, black flag. also love bob dylan. slowly trying to vary what genres i listen too but the whole 80’s 90’s alt-indie rock scene is my favourite by far.
my favourite album has always been you’re living all over me 🙂July 4, 2013 at 1:49 pm #140222

When I got into Dino I eventually got into Husker Du,Meat Puppets,Buffalo Tom,Pavement,Sebadoh,MBV,Guided By Voices,Yo La Tengo…July 4, 2013 at 2:57 pm #140223

The best Yo La Tengo album to start with would be I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One.My favorite though is Electr-O-Pura.Blue Line Swinger is one of the best songs everJuly 4, 2013 at 8:48 pm #140225
okay thanks a lot! and wow that song was awesome, they kinda remind me of a band called Swervedriver, another great shoegazing band.July 8, 2013 at 10:14 pm #140226July 9, 2013 at 4:11 pm #140227
