V.A. – The Bridge: A Tribute To Neil Young (1989)

V.A. – The Bridge: A Tribute To Neil Young (1989)
Mp3 @ 320kbps

Let’s start with a slight segue and a rhetorical question! How do we know Sonic Youth are the greatest band out there. Well, we start by checking out their sublime covers on tributes like this, where their “Computer Age” is just fucking sublime! Check out too the I’m Not There OST, where their cover of the title track is perfect. I mean they even made the fucking Carpenters sound good with their version of “Superstar” years back!

THE BRIDGE, featuring a wide palette of alternative-identified artists covering Neil Young songs, wasn’t the first tribute album ever made, but it was the first one anyone really noticed, and it may well have been the best.

Its success, which had something to do with the fact that the artists were all rabid Young fans with palpable ideas about what to do with his songs, led to an outpouring of other tribute albums, most of which have been far less successful. Often they included – or, in one case, feted – the artists here, who became instant superstars on the tribute circuit. But the superstar on THE BRIDGE remained Neil Young, whose songs withstand both the weirdest and most loving of interpretations.

Among the former are Dinosaur Jr.’s very fast, very bratty punk take on the folky standby “Lotta Love” (aided by a guest singer who sounds mysteriously like Daniel Johnston) and Bongwater’s tape-loop-aided version of “Mr. Soul” (a song Young himself has done many times and many ways).

Others play it straight. The Pixies’ “Winterlong,” featuring one of the few recorded duets between Black Francis and Kim Deal, is a nearly perfect pop song; Soul Asylum’s “Barstool Blues” sounds like a lost classic of flannel-shirted rock; and guitarist Henry Kaiser (performing with singers David and Rosanne Lindley) squeezes every bit of junkie juice out of his downer medley of “The Needle And The Damage Done” (on piano) and “Tonight’s The Night” (with full band).

Wonderful songs and a wonderful tribute to a wonderful artist.

I seem to be using the word wonderful rather a lot today. Well, I guess that’s just wonderful !


Old man lying
by the side of the road
With the lorries rolling by,
Blue moon sinking
from the weight of the load
And the building scrape the sky,
Cold wind ripping
down the alley at dawn
And the morning paper flies,
Dead man lying
by the side of the road
With the daylight in his eyes.

Don’t let it bring you down
It’s only castles burning,
Find someone who’s turning
And you will come around.

Blind man running
through the light
of the night
With an answer in his hand,
Come on down
to the river of sight
And you can really understand,
Red lights flashing
through the window
in the rain,
Can you hear the sirens moan?
White cane lying
in a gutter in the lane,
If you’re walking home alone.

Don’t let it bring you down
It’s only castles burning,
Just find someone who’s turning
And you will come around.

Don’t let it bring you down
It’s only castles burning,
Just find someone who’s turning
And you will come around.

Dinosaur Jr. – Green Mind – Remastered and Bonus Tracks (2006) VBR

Dinosaur Jr. – Green Mind – Remastered and Bonus Tracks (2006) VBR
File Size:
84MB

This was one of our favourite DJr albums in its original incarnation.

This 2006 reissue’s even better! It is an expanded and remastered edition, with the sound tuned up on the existing tracks and also containing three Bonus tracks – a cover of Gram Parsons’ “Hot Burrito #2,” “Turnip Farm,” and “Forget It.”

Green Mind was the fourth studio album by Dinosaur Jr, released in 1991. Notably, it was the band’s first release after bassist Lou Barlow’s departure, as well as the first released by a major label.

The record is essentially a J Mascis solo album, with drummer, Murph, only featuring on three tracks.

The cover photograph, “Priscilla, 1969”, is by Joseph Szabo and taken from his book of photographs entitled, “Almost Grown”.

After temporarily suspending the band, J Mascis first snuck out “The Wagon” as a Sub Pop single, then a little while later released the group’s first major-label album, Green Mind.

More of a solo project than a group effort — Lou Barlow was out and then some, Murph only drums on three tracks, a few guests pop up here and there — it’s still a great album, recorded and performed with gusto.

Such a judgment may seem strange given Mascis’ legendary image as the überslacker, but clearly the man knows how to balance how to convey himself with getting the job done.

“The Wagon” itself kicks off the album, an even quicker and nuttier sequel to the peerless “Freak Scene” — Don Fleming of Gumball fame adds some of the music and background vocals, but otherwise it’s Mascis and Murph cranking it and having a blast. When Mascis goes into one of his patented over-the-top solos, it all feels just right — this is loud rock music for putting a smile on your face, not beating up people in a pit.

The remainder of the album floats and rumbles along in its uniquely Dinosaur Jr. type of way, as apt to find poppy hooks, singalongs, and soft strumming as it is to blow out the Marshalls. Sublime moments include the contrast of sweet acoustic guitar and loud drums on “Blowing It,” the fun thrash of “How’d You Pin That One on Me,” and the Mellotron-as-flute-tinged stomp “Thumb.”

If nothing on the album is completely as freaked-out and over the top as “Push” from Bug, it’s still a fine translation of Mascis’ art for the commercial big boys. The song titles alone sometime say it all — “Puke + Cry,” “I Live for That Look,” “Muck.”

Mascis throughout sounds like his usual self, cracked drawl ever as it was and shall be.

– Ned Raggett

Dinosaur Jr – Ear Bleeding Country (Best of…)

Ear Bleeding Country? Don’t worry – this is not, and I repeat “not”, a collection of Garth Brooks Country muzak!!

We love Mr J Mascis. Not only cos he shortened his name to one letter way before that Prince wierdo though of it!

No. It’s cos of the excellent music Mascis and various cohorts – including the great Lou Barlow in the early days – have been making for 24 years now! 24 fucking years!! Since long before the birth of that over hyped grunge scene, which just kinda ripped off the Dinosaur Jr sound. The majestic “Freak Scene” in 1988 provided the grunge template. A unique mixture of speed metal, purest pop and a melodic cat being throttled.

The great album “Bug” from 88 set them on their way. They never however seemed to make the big bucks they deserved. For various reasons Mascis retired the Dinosaur Jr name in 1997 before the group reformed again 8 years later. Yes, they’re back touring again and making new albums! Allah be praised! And, finally, in May 2007, the original members of Dinosaur Jr released Beyond, their first album of new material together since Bug in 1988.

Just look at the classics in here! The seminal Freak Scene. The magnificent Cure cover Just Like Heaven. The languid Whatever’s Cool With Me. And many many more!

I’m ready to let my ears bleed beautifully!

    Tracks:

    1. Repulsion
    2. Little Fury Things
    3. In A Jar
    4. Freak Scene
    5. Budge
    6. Just Like Heaven
    7. The Wagon
    8. Thumb
    9. Whatever’s Cool With Me
    10. Not You Again
    11. Out There
    12. Start Choppin
    13. Get Me
    14. Feel The Pain
    15. I Don’t Think So
    16. Take A Run At The Sun – J. Mascis
    17. Nothin’s Goin’ On
    18. I’m Insane
    19. Where’d You Go – J. Mascis & The Fog

Here be J (without Silent Bob)
