It is fair to say that Dinosaur Junior are alternative music legends. Formed back in 1984, in Amherst, MA, the group's innovative guitar racket has inspired many punk and alternative rock musicians, as well as attracting a loyal following for the band.In their early days, the band was a trio, consisting of J Mascis on vocals and guitar, Lou Barlow on bass and vocals, and Murph, on drums. Barlow would later leave the group, and go on to form Sebadoh and Folk Implosion. He would be replaced by Mike Johnson, who stayed with the band for three albums. The band's debut album, 'Dinosaur', was released in 1985, after being recorded for $500 in a home studio in the Massachusetts woods. It would sell only around 1500 copies, and give little indication of the success to come. The band's next album, 'You're Living All Over Me', was released in 1987, again to little impact. The big break came in 1988, when the single 'Freak Scene' reached number 4 in the UK Indie Charts. This would be shortly followed by the album 'Bug', which would reach number 1 on the UK Indie Chart.That success would ultimately lead to the break-up of the band, with the next album, 'Green Mind' being basically a J Masic solo album. The enjoyed commercial success with a number of albums, not least 'Where You Been' which made the US top 50, until Mascis called time on it in 1997.The band's use of feedback, noise and quiet/loud dynamics has left its imprint all over rock music, influencing the likes of the Pixies and Nirvana. J Mascis' drawled vocals have always been the perfect counterpoint to the fuzzy guitars of the band's music. In 2005, the original line-up of the band reformed, and has been working together ever since. Two albums were released, 'Beyond' in 2007, and 'Farm' in 2009.In August, 2016, Dinosaur Jr released another album 'Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not', which was greeted with enthusiasm by fans, and was released with the help of a video announcement by punk legend Henry Rollins.
