Dinosaur Jr. formed in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 1984, originally simply called Dinosaur until legal issues forced a change in name.
The band was founded by J Mascis (guitar, vocals, primary songwriter), Lou Barlow (bass, vocals), and Murph (drums). After three albums on independent labels, the band earned a reputation as one of the formative influences on American alternative rock.
After disbanding in 1997, the band had a triumphant reunion in 2005, that included a slot at Lollapalooza. The group has since released five albums.
Mascis’ drawling vocals and distinct guitar sound, hearkening back to 1960s and 1970s classic rock and characterized by extensive feedback and distortion, were highly influential in the alternative rock movement of the 1990s.
