Dinosaur Jr.

Dinosaur Jr. is an American alternative rock band formed in Amherst, Massachusetts in 1984, originally called simply Dinosaur until legal issues forced a change in name. The group disbanded in 1997 before reuniting in 2005. Guitarist J Mascis, bassist Lou Barlow, and drummer Murph are the band's founding and current members; Mascis has been the group's sole continuous member.

Their distinct guitar sound, characterized by high gain, extensive use of feedback and distortion, and frontman J Mascis's melodic guitar solos, was highly influential in the alternative rock movement of the 1990s. On June 13, 2012 the band announced the name of the new album "I Bet on Sky". It will be released September 17 in Europe and September 18 in the U.S. - Wikipedia
