Dinosaur Jr. Roam Again

Indie rockers' original lineup reunites for TV show

March 28, 2005 12:00 AM ET

The original members of Dinosaur Jr. will reunite after fifteen years apart for their first national television appearance. The indie rockers will perform on CBS' The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson on April 15th.

Vocalist/guitarist J Mascis and bassist Lou Barlow formed the band, originally called Dinosaur, in 1985 and were later joined by drummer Murph. Several seven-inches and two LPs on SST records followed before the rockers called it quits in 1989. Mascis would go on to record under the name, but without Barlow. Barlow turned to dual pursuits, Sebadoh and the Folk Implosion.

The first three Dinosaur Jr. albums -- Dinosaur, You're Living All Over Me and Bug -- were reissued last week on Merge Records.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
