J. MASCIS INTERVIEWED, AND CONCERT REVIEW (2003): No time for talking

J. MASCIS INTERVIEWED, AND CONCERT REVIEW (2003): No time for talking

J. Mascis is the Silent Bob of rock. Look at any of the few interviews on the internet and you can see large blocks of type (the question) followed by a paltry line or two (the closed answer which seldom allows for a follow-up). Mascis, once of Dinosaur Jr and now out on a solo career with the occasional band The Fog, is a man of...

LOU BARLOW INTERVIEWED (2003): Dinosaur walking again

As a cruel ploy it was also kind of funny. When guitarist J. Mascis and bassist Lou Barlow in Dinosaur Jr got to the point that they couldn't even talk to each other, the end was inevitable.

BEST OF ELSEWHERE 2011 Thurston Moore: Demolished Thoughts (Matador)

Well, to this which is mostly gentle, dreamy singer-songwriter work with acoustic guitar, harp, violin and producer Beck on synths, vocals and bass. To a great extent -- because of...

J. Mascis: Tied to a Star (SubPop)

The 2012 album I Bet on Sky by Dinosaur Jr – the band singer/guitarist J. Mascis helms with once-estranged Lou Barlow – divided loyalists, some heard it as a return to form and others (like me) thought it obvious. Mascis' albums under his own name have been more consistently interesting since Free So Free (with the Fog) over...
