and the lights all went down

The pictorial reference above is not quite Amherst, but at least we're in the general ball-park, geographically speaking.

Produced and written by J Mascis; drums by Murph; mellotron by Sean Slade. Engineered and mixed by Sean Slade and Paul Q. Kolderie.

After parting company with Sub Pop - and Lou Barlow - after just one single, "The Wagon", J Mascis was quick to release Dinosaur Jr's fourth long player; their first for a major label.

With Murph only sitting in on three tracks in the studio, "Green Mind" is essentially to be regarded as a solo project.

Ok, am I going mad. I'm sure when I logged on this afternoon it was the Bee Gees attached to this post. Are you playing mind games, ib?

ib said...

No. And you are perfectly sane, peewit.

I started today with the Bee Gees' "Massachusetts", changed my mind and put up "New York Mining Disaster 1941", then changed it again...

A strange day; and I didn't think anybody had noticed!

I'm sticking with "Dinosaur Jr" because of its relevance to the previous day's post.

Sorry about the shenanigans! I promise I'm not playing "green" mind games.

I've noticed this kind of behavior going on quite a bit around here. I think you're just trying to find out if we're really paying attention or if we're just brain-dead zombies.

Sadly, I lack the foresight to employ random testing of any description on this site - or in real life, too, for that matter...

I am just impetuous (I had to look that one up) some of the time.

Ha! "Fresh Grains". Nice. I haven't seen "Return Of The Living Dead" for what seems like an eternity. It has missed the TV slots here, while Romero is on quite frequently. Even Lucio Fulci.
