Dinosaur Jr.: Palaentology

Jason Cohen, Option, May 1992

IF YOU GO by what's been written about Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis, his music, history and personality could be summed in the following list: loud, quiet, Neil Young, soap operas, melodic, off-key, Sonic Youth, post-hardcore, couch potato, pedal-hopping, Lou Barlow, suburbs, game shows, still lives with parents, lethargic, "Yeah" and "I don't know." Especially those last three items.
