By now, you know the story: J Mascis, Lou Barlow, and Patrick "Murph" Murphy, meet in Amherst, MA. J, Lou and Murph start a band. Said band goes on to rip through the musical landscape and prove to be the genesis of the "alternative rock" archetype. Over the last 25 years, Dinosaur Jr have influenced a countless number of bands, both peers and protÃ©gÃ©s, by wailing their classic union of melodic bass, seething drums, virtuosic guitar shredding and listless vocal delivery through the iconic Marshall stacks. Jagjaguwar is honored to reissue the band's first three albums, Dinosaur, You're Living All Over Me and Bug, on vinyl this October. Originally released on the venerable Homestead and SST labels in the 1980's, the reissues stay true to form and include the cardinal track lists.
