[Play It Again, J] Dinosaur Jr.

So the almighty [PIAS] Recordings this year celebrate their 30th Anniversary of existence. Don’t know about them, but when I turn thirty in a now fathomable, and therefore terrifying few years’ time I’d want for J Mascis to record a bristly acoustic rendition of an almost forgotten Beyond track. Heck – I’d most likely have plumped for This Is All I Came To Do, though that one’s now been already done, the bittersweet, and all too often forgotten Dinosaur Jr. paean to the helplessly lovelorn here emotively exposed as the slow, slow burn belter it always menaced to become but never quite could beyond all the distortion and squealin’ solos. Thereby more Several Shades of Why than I Bet On Sky in subduedly resplendent aesthetic, gnaw on this one a while…


Dinosaur Jr. play an NME Awards Show at Camden’s Electric Ballroom February 4th.
