Dinosaur Jr. is an American rock band that was formed in 1984 in Amherst, Massachusetts. The founding members were J Mascis (guitar, vocals), Lou Barlow (bass, vocals), and Emmett Jefferson “Murph” Murphy III (drums). The line-up has gone through changes over the years, but J Mascis has remained the constant driving force of the band.

Dinosaur Jr. played a significant role in the development of alternative rock and the emerging grunge scene in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Their loud, distorted guitar sound, combined with Mascis’s unique vocal style, contributed to their influence on bands like Nirvana and the broader alternative rock movement.

The band’s early albums, particularly “You’re Living All Over Me” (1987) and “Bug” (1988), received critical acclaim and are considered influential in the alternative rock genre. These albums showcased J Mascis’s distinctive guitar work and songwriting style.

After a period of disbandment in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Dinosaur Jr. reunited in 2005 with the original lineup of J Mascis, Lou Barlow, and Murph. The reunion resulted in new albums, including “Beyond” (2007) and “I Bet on Sky” (2012), and the band continued to tour and release music in the following years.

J Mascis is known for his distinctive guitar style, characterized by his extensive use of feedback, distortion, and a penchant for playing loud. His guitar work has been influential in the alternative and indie rock scenes. Mascis is often recognized for his mastery of the Fender Jazzmaster guitar, which has become synonymous with his sound.
