The original guitar slackers ramp up Reading
Dinosaur Jr have just stormed the NME/ Radio 1 stage this afternoon (August 25).
Playing an hour long set over at the far tent, J. Mascis, Murph and Barlow were confident and adept at showing how guitars SHOULD sound.
Minimal talking between songs, J Mascis did introduce ‘Mountain Man’ as a ‘Song that you might know. It was NME’s single of the week on November 23, 1966’ before starting up the intro to raptuous applause from the crowd.
Drawing most of the set from early albums ‘ Dinosaur’ and ‘You’re Living All Over Me’ – Mascis also threw in a surprise cover of The Cure’s ‘Just Like Heaven.’
The set list in full, including plenty from newer album ‘Beyond’ was:
Been There All The Time
Just Like Heaven
Little Fury Things
This is All I Came To Do
Feel The Pain
