Freakscene: The Story of Dinosaur jr.

Introduction :

Director: Philipp Reichenheim
Producer(s): Philipp Virus
Cast: Lou Barlow, J Mascis, Murph

Documentary, Musical

FREAKSCENE: THE STORY OF DINOSAUR JR. is a homage to one of the most influential bands on the American East Coast, which inspired the rock scene, including Nirvana and Sonic Youth, in the 1990s. Their style and unmistakable sound, later referred to as "Grunge", laid the foundation for the entire "Slacker" culture of Generation X. It is also the story of the eloquent and eccentric guitarist and bandleader J. Mascis, the bassist Lou Barlow and drummer Murph, and a band that insanely does not talk to each other. Communication takes place exclusively through music, although filmmaker Philipp Reichenheim nevertheless manages to make the closed and shy icons speak. An emotional, tragically funny and sometimes noisy rollercoaster ride by a dysfunctional family, Dinosaur Jr.

Saw them with Primus at an outdoor I gotta admit, I've seen them about three other times and they really brought it when they played with Primus and stole the show as the openers

Saw them in the Feb 1993 in college. J said his dad had died that day :-( and yet he still played the show. After the show, I passed him in a hallway of the basement of the Student Union and he was by himself and just walked by and said "Hey" like any random person.

I took my girlfriend to see them at Irving Plaza, they were so loud she left. Despite losing a relationship and my hearing, they are still my favorite band.

I heard they cut one Jay Mascis interview from the film, which was only 5 minutes long. Because people at the test screening were claiming that during that segment, it made the film 4 hours longer than it should've

Ed from the Stupids did a hardcore mixtape for me in the 80’s when I was in school- he included the Deep Wound 7” which became my favourite . I assumed they were all built like SSDecontrol and had the Negative Approach vibe but was shocked to see J and Lou were members and had this laid back look- not at all ferocious but they fucking hammered their instruments!
