From 1985 to 1990, Maura Jasper was the go-to artist for “ear-bleeding country” trio Dinosaur Jr. From “Repulsion” to their self-titled debut LP, from You’re Living All Over Me to “Freak Scene,” from Bug to “Just Like Heaven,” and on posters, videos, and t-shirts, the Dinosaur Jr. look was born of Jasper’s love for Norwegian expressionist Edvard Munch and English anarchist Gee Vaucher.
Collected inside are Dinosaur Jr.’s replicas of first four singles for the SST and Homestead labels, a bonus fifth 7″ pairing “Show Me The Way” with a cover of the Byrds‘ “Feel A Whole Lot Better,” a Jasper-penned essay on her creative process and friendship with J Mascis, and a book of unused work from the period.
