Dinosaur Jr share ‘Solo Extractions’

J Mascis serves up Dinosaur chops.
‘Shut Up ‘n Play Yer Guitar’. Not something you’d need to say to Dinosaur Jr’s legendarily laconic frontman J Mascis, but a series of albums by Frank Zappa consisting of just guitar solos. 106 minutes of the things.

Now, as a teaser for their upcoming ‘Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not’, out on August 5 through Jagjaguwar, Dinosaur Jr have done something similar, but (thankfully? – Ed) shorter, splicing all of the album’s solos together as ‘Solo Extractions’, which you can listen to below.

You’ll doubtless hear all of these notes, and more, when the band hit the UK in November – their tour dates are:


14 Bristol, UK @ Motion

15 Dublin, IE @ Vicar Street

17 Glasgow, UK @ ABC1

18 London, UK @ Forum

19 Manchester, UK @ Albert Hall

They’ll also be playing on 26th October, at Leeds University Stylus, for the opening party of the Beacons Metro festival.
