Dinosaur Jr.

The first fully authorised, illustrated history of Dinosaur Jr., by Dinosaur Jr. A lavishly designed autobiography, packed with rare and unseen photographs.

J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph tell the true story of the band’s history from High school through grunge and international stardom to the present day, in their own words and with extra contributions from former band members and old friends.

Press reviews

Teeming with tension that frequently explodes into cathartic rages … talkative and open about their past in a way that hasn't been hinted at elsewhere … an engaging and often chortlesome read … an insight into the dysfunction at the heart of Dinosaur Jr.

Julian Marszalek, The Quietus

Since their regeneration, the influential Massachusetts trio have released two great albums and one very good one, plus a live DVD, but this new book could well be the pinnacle of their comeback.

4 stars

Mischa Pearlman, Record Collector

A thing of beauty

8 stars

Paul Brannigan, Classic Rock

Given all they have been through over the past three decades, the band clearly deserves something as impressive as this massive oral history to document their survival.

4 stars

John B. Moore, Blurt

It’s almost like they knew they’d be putting this book together one day…

Matt Melis, Consequence of Sound
