Singles going steady 23: Dinosaur Jr


In which J Mascis reaches inside to bring out the inner Brian Wilson. He succeeds brilliantly. Why doesn't he do this more often?

indeed. the b-sides on this were as good as the lead track. great stuff.

This was written for the film "Grace Of My Heart" in which J appears as a record producer with Matt Dillon as an all-surfing, all-doing-drugs Brian Wilson type pop star. He even got a couple of lines of mumbled dialogue.

Mumbled dialogue indeed. Is the film any good? As for the b-sides, The Pickle Song is surely one of the oddest things recorded under the name Dinosaur Jr. I should post these because this single doesn't seem to be widely available anywhere...
