I respect that they are still playing, but after only 56 seconds of that song, I had to stop listening. The sound and playing was not good.
The rhythm wasn't awful, but he's playing so loud that you can't hear anything except the guitar and maybe the cymbals. The leads were a tad sloppy and the timing was off but hey...he probably couldn't hear the other two guys lol.
I'll never forget, during a period when I was unemployed and spent my days drinking beer, noodling on guitar and watching daytime TV, when all of a sudden there they were on Jenny Jones. J was ripping. I kept thinking to myself "Jenny Jones' audience must be thinking what the heck is this?"
Jones introduces the tune as "Out of There" which shows how much she was into the music.
Apparently the player is disabled. Go here to view:
Did anyone else watch that and think 'I didn't know Saruman played guitar?'
I love how you can't hear the vocals because they're standing right in the blast zone.
I caught them live back in the day. The hum coming from J's rig was deafening.
I saw them a while back. It is something to be experienced, feeling those 3 stacks moving air at you.
Caught his tour about a decade ago with Ron Asheton guesting. We could hear guitar walking the half block to the Black Cat and guessed it was Ron. Silly me. J was insanely loud and that was what we were hearing. When you are blowing away Ron Asheton volume wise , I mean come on..,
Overdosing on meth is something to be experienced as well, but I'm willing to just read about it.
I used to really like Dino Jr in the 90's, but over and over, I heard people tell me how their ears hurt after their gigs. No thanks. I like his music, but not enough to subject myself to that stupidity.
I had the volume kind of low on my laptop, and I honestly didn't realize there were any other instruments playing.
Apprently some of the people responding to this thread are "too old" according to the rock and roll wisdom. Much love for J. and his wall of amps! I think that the sloppiness is part of the sound for this band. If this band was all quantized and beat-corrected it would be really lame. And this is coming from someone who prefers "tech" music such as prog and metal....just saying that if you wanna like Dino Jr., you gotta take it for what it is, blown out punk garage, psych, noise, etc. Fun!!
I stopped it after 20 sec. That was Awful my god that was torture… Even my 33 year old wife agreed !!!
I can't hear the bass or vocals
Good things he got the amps miked
I'm 28 years old. Still think he's drowning out the rest of the band and is pointlessly too loud. You can tell he can play, honestly I think it sounds sloppy because he can't sync up with the bassist or drummer. Being loud is all good and fun, but not when the music suffers. Also, driving potential fans away because you are destroying their hearing is a pretty silly IMO.
Dinosaur Jr is more important and better than all the bands all of you will ever be in put together.
Keep making fun of J though - it definitely makes you look good.
I liked it.
I was at that show and it was great! I was on the right side of the stage and mid back area so I could save my hearing.
J Mascis, Curt Kirkwood and Jimmy Page are my favorite sloppy rock guitarists.
