Baker's Dozen: J Mascis On His 13 Favourite Records
The Quietus , March 17th, 2011 09:44

The slacker/ shoegaze guitar demon fesses up about his top albums

Add your comment »

Of all the artists who have agreed to take up our Baker's Dozen challenge and provide us with a list of their 13 favourite albums, J Mascis's choices are arguably the least surprising. It's no great shock, after all, to hear him profess his adoration for Iggy and the Stooges or herald the influence that the mighty Black Sabbath had upon his own bilious racket of noise making. And even those more obscure punk releases and lesser-known recordings that critics snubbed their noses at are to be half-expected from the Dinosaur JR man.

But his list certainly isn't without its revelations. Who would have thought that J would look up to Nick Cave as a "fashion icon"? Or that he'd be inspired by British punk younglings Eater and their 14-year-old drummer? Just like the previous lists we've featured, his selections provide both unexpected selections and a fine insight into the records that made him the artist he is today.

So to read what the ever-garrulous J had to say on his favourite 13 albums, click the image below...

The new solo album from J Mascis, Several Shades Of Why, is out now. He'll also be playing live shows at Whelans in Dublin on April 13 and Cargo, London on April 14.

Yeah. Punk Rockers are 50+ now. Not 17.

I loved reading this list. I lost a little of my hearing at a Dinosaur Jr. show, but it was worth it.

I am surprised and delighted by this list. Some of my all time faves in there - VU LIve, Exile, Eater, Funhouse. There's a couple there I don't know at all so will be following up on them this very day. Thanks. I've just got the J Mascis solo album and it sounds very promising after a couple of listens. Playing acoustic seems to work despite him being one of my favourite (electric) guitarists of all time.

Great list with many all time great albums included. I like the comments from Natalie and Bingo. Really enjoying the new album from J...shows yet another side of this incredibly talented musician. I saw J perform on Tuesday at a Boston in-store to celebrate the release of his new album. He did a few of the new songs, which were excellent; closed his set with a superb version of the Dinosaur Jr song "Get Me". Got an autograph on the new LP and a chance to talk briefly with him. J seems to be in a really good place now; there is a Zen calm about him and he appears to be at a very happy and creative stage in his life. Tuesday was the 4th time I've seen him perform during the past seven months, none of them with Dinosaur Jr. Drumming with Lard Zeppelin (the best Zep cover band in the universe)at The Beachcomber, sitting in with Black Mountain at The Paradise, performing Cortez the Killer at Carnegie Hall during last month's Neil Young tribute (one of the absolute highlights of an outstanding show) and Tuesday's solo performance. He's on tour right now and I highly recommend that you see him if he's in your area. Thanks again J for all of your great music!

Yes, love J's comments about great LPs not having too memorable tunes on them. I think this goes some way to explaining the appeal of an LP like Exile On Main Street which is about vibe and duration - something to immerse yourself in.

Love everything J Mascis does. With Dino, solo and Witch. He also has an excellent taste in music too. Stooges, Sabbath, Negative Approach, Zeppelin and one of my all-time favourite bands...The Wipers. Everyone needs to check out their work, its' extraordinary, never mind The Stone Roses, New Order etc these guys were truly originals. :)
