The Dead C - Scarey Nest

Runway (Precious Metal ‎– PM1)

Shoot, I really love this recording. Stunning early recording of their most popular (?) track.

"…fans will recognize a catatonic run through the classic "Scarey Nest" (later polished up, relatively speaking, for the Eusa Kills LP) that sounds as if it was recorded directly onto pure opium instead of magnetic tape. Later on, some distracted strums nod toward song-ish forms, but they’re not putting a lot of effort into it. There’s even (gasp!) a drum machine on a few tracks. Those looking for the pre-history of a band that changed music in New Zealand forever and had a lasting impact on out-rock/noise around the world will find lots of oil here in which to deep-fry what’s left of their brains.”

Spin has an excerpt from the new Dinosaur Jr. oral history/photo book. Here Lou and J talk about the artwork on their first LP:Lou Barlow (Dinosaur Jr. bassist): The cover is by Maura Jasper, who’d met J [Mascis] at U-Mass, and was one of those totally cool punk rock girls hanging out with him, she was part of the crew. J came up with the idea for the first record, “I want a guy standing in a field.” He had a bizarre relationship with this little kid at U-Mass called Artie, they’d formed a weird bond, with J treating him like a whipping boy, and Artie lapped it up and seemed totally bewildered by J’s fascination with him. J wanted Artie’s face on the cover so he took a photo of him and put it there in the corner.J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr. singer/guitarist): Artie didn’t have too many friends. I met him at college and we would hang out and I’d bring him to some parties. Lou’s view makes it seem like it was a little more cynical, but I was just hanging out with this guy, a fellow freshman who I thought was interesting.

I need to get this book!
