You are a lucky man.

I have an Escape Hybrid That's right... I'm an SUV driver.

No tape deck, though. Anywhere. Except i suppose on my old 4-track.

I wouldn't say lucky, pretty normal for someone of my age

I have no idea what an Escape Hybrid is

It's an SUV made by Ford, half gas/half electric. It's the lazy environmentalist's second choice.

.. well, maybe third. It is an SUV after all, so even being half electric it's still a gas consuming monster.

Cool car, though. I'm semi-proud of it. My first actual NEW car. Good feeling, in a weird way.

I don't know if this is me being well behind the times but apparently murph quit? he was definitely playing with them back when I saw them twice in march (punishing shit) but apparently on all their recent dates he's been replaced by the dude from the fog.

now I am sad.

he didn't quit, but was on leave for some time. Saw them last week, and Murph was with them. Which I hadn't expected so it was a nice surprise

^update: murph didn't quit. apparently has visa issues coming in to aus regularly?

anyway dredged up this thread because I saw these guys a couple weeks back and they're just so indescribably great at the moment, it's a well-worn routine but their setlists are spot on -- encore of just like heaven into sludgefeast was pure ecstasy -- and they seem to be in a really good place. most recent record was also for me their best since getting back together as a trio (so by default since the 80s?), not a dud to be seen and they slot perfectly into their shows.

cliche at this point but it's how you do a reunion: carve out something meaningful when you're together and tap into that again when you inevitably come hunting for that $$$ 20 years later.

Thanks. I wasn't too impressed with the new one when it came out last year, as you may recall. I've always loved Dino, but I didn't feel any urge to listen to it after the second or third time. Decided Beyond was still my post-reunion favorite almost immediately. Just cause it sounded so goddamn refreshing after years of Pseudosaur Jr. and Mascis' solo + Fog stuff.

I will revisit. Maybe today. Maybe right now.

Lou's contributions to the reunion albums are highlights for me. It could never happen, but a side project where Lou writes all songs and J plays lead and does what LOU tells him to do would be the best rock band in the world for me.

Not that Dino aren't awesome. They are, I saw them last month, in very very good form right now.

"Your Weather" is one of my favorite Dinosaur Jr. songs of all time. Underrated and unheralded. No idea why that wasn't released as a single. Just Fucking propulsive.

I think a Lou fronted Dino (or: Lou with J's guitar talent) would end up sounding a bit like Lee's rockier stuff. I think those two are kindred spirits. Lee is of course a much better, more versatile guitarist, but stil... just me, maybe.

if Dino jr. come near me at anytime, I have to see them.

they are loud, melodic, and tight. what more do you want from a rock show? the greatest live band in existence. besides maybe Swans or the Melvins and a couple of classic rock bands.

I stop giving a shit about them or the reunion years ago but, if you want to see a band on point, then they are the ones to see. always loved the way Lou played bass. the Lemmy way. it's like an earthquake live.

Lou is better as boring Sebadoh. I've always thought Lose on You're Living all Over should've been an instrumental. Lou reminds me of somebody who is tough but acts like a wussy because he thinks its punk.

Agreed big time on Your Weather. If someone like Queens of the Stone Age released that in 2009 it could have been massive. Imagination Blind, Back To Your Heart, Left/Right are up there with my all time favourite songs. He's such a great singer, powerful but vulnerable at the same time

well, maybe I need to check out the after break-up albums. I never bothered, I just wanted to see them live. saw J and the Fog but they sucked without the original rhythm section in action though Watt is good. I feel all the new songs I heard will not be as good over the years hearing them live.

I gave Beyond a good listen but that's all since.

I tell you an underated album is J's More Light. that album is solid.

the Fog over the original band?

No!! I don't think so! only a crazy person would think that and yr crazy! J had at once some weak drummer and ended up with Mike Watt who was awesome and ended up with the Stooges.

still, no, yr crazy. crazy ass crazy.

Lou is better as boring Sebadoh. I've always thought Lose on You're Living all Over should've been an instrumental. Lou reminds me of somebody who is tough but acts like a wussy because he thinks its punk.

Hah @ Lou, re: wussy

See, this is the difference between you and ** PLips ... even though you may go through phases where your posts are more drunken ramblings and pseudo-spam than anything else, you're still very clearly, and above all else, a music fan. So you can't resist a good shit shooting sesh about artists bear and dear to you. I've noticed that Senadoh is one of these. Same for me. So cheers.

And yes, Dinosaur Jr. is one of the best live bands around. I too am quite over the excitement of the reunion (but that makes sense, because they've been "old Dino" again for a DECADE now, so treating any of this like a reunion is ridiculous), but when they first announced the original trio was regrouping, and they played their first few shows prior to the release of Beyond, I was fucking ON IT. It might as well have been "The Empire Strikes Back." That's how pumped I was in the line for the first post-reunion show I attended. And it fucking slayed.

Now, though, they've existed longer as a version 2.0 of their original selves than many promising bands who have sprung up in the interim. Women, one of my personal favorite rock-type bands of recent years, made waves and then dissipated between the release of Farm and I Bet on Sky, for instance. SWANS regrouped, conquered the world, and apparently stopped once again in the time since Dino became Dino again.

I think I'm more of a Sebadoh guy than a Dino guy, but I wouldn't feel the need to drop what I was doing for another Sebadoh show. Much like you, however, I would pretty much see Dinosaur jr any time, any place, barring extenuating circumstances. For the record I think they're better live than the Melvins. I've seen some MIGHTY fucking Melvins shows, but I've also caught some "meh" ones. Of the five or six times I've seen Dino, I've never caught them on an off night.

** I honestly thought for the longest time that it was FLips, as in Flaming Lips, because my eyes are SHIT. This is probably why I gave him a pass on his bullshit for so long. Y'know... Lips fan solidarity and whatnot. Knowing this was not the case, it was waaaay easier to make him the one and only name on my ignore list.

Wait, what? You haven't even bothered with the Dino 2.0 albums?

Dude. They're not all gold, but some of them are... well, pretty fucking gold.
This is how I'd rank them:

1. Beyond
2. Farm
3. Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not
4. I Bet on Sky

The only one that really fell on deaf ears for me was I Bet on Sky. Not sure why, but I just did not enjoy that one. I also didn't hate it, but I haven't listened to it since about a month after it came out.

Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not didn't blow me away when it came out, but now I can feel that there is a sort of definitively Dino energy about it. You know how Bug just sounds fucking kick-ass when you're driving down the freeway in the summer, blasting the hell out of it and singing along? Well, that feeling is present on ...Glimpse. I don't listen to rock much, but if I ever do, I want it in my car.

Go listen to "Your Weather," which you've probably heard live and already know well. Still... couldn't hurt.
