From random videos on Rage to soundtracking skate video parts, from triple J hottest 100 compilation appearances to mixtape appearances, from an entity to a band people exhort, from staple alternative band to punk rock risk and experiment. From a band of nullius filius to ex-Deep Wound. Maybe that last one doesn’t work so much. It takes time with me, time i always wish i had already spent with and not wasted without. This is my favourite Dinosaur Jr. song.
