This is guitar heaven for alt-rock/dirgey guitar slinger freaks. J. Mascis, as on this album, remains a true shred maestro with his trusty ‘63 Fender Jazzmaster amped up to the hilt.
Actually, I did see him playing an “acoustic” solo set as an opening act for Sonic Youth in the 90’s. What I thought was going to be an acoustic, unplugged set turned out to be some of the raunchiest, squealiest, and loudest guitar playing I’ve ever heard.
Three songs in - he hit’s a foot pedal - a wah wah-heavy, bliss blizzard prevails for the next 45 minutes!!
I’m loving “A Sonic Youth” podcast - this fairly recent release is just another magic discovery revered by 20 year old Kiwi, Oliver Grey.
