Supreme Dicks Reissue Complete Recordings on Jagjaguwar

Jagjaguwar is thrilled to announce the reissue of the complete Supreme Dicks catalog on October 18 (October 17 UK). Rising out of the Amherst, MA scene that produced Dinosaur Jr, Supreme Dicks were vital contributors to the lo-fi and avant garde genres. The band’s constantly revolving lineup (Lou Barlow was a Dick now and again) centered around Daniel Oxenberg, Jon Shere, Steve Shavel, Mark Hanson, and Jim Spring, whose psychedelic-yet-twangy brand of rock’n’roll came out of the band’s roots at Hampshire College in the Reagan era.

To celebrate the release there are two free MP3s available today! You can find “Jack-O-Lantern” at Altered Zones and “In a Sweet Song” at RCRD LBL.

The complete recordings will be reissued as a 4 CD box set called “Breathing and Not Breathing.” This will include both of the band’s studio albums, The Unexamined Life and The Emotional PlagueWorkingman’s Dick, a collection of early archival recordings; and the EPThis Is Not A Dick, which has been fleshed out with rare and unreleased tracks. Also available are 2xLP editions of The Unexamined Life and The Emotional Plague. Cover art & track listings after the jump.

Dinosaur Jr.’s First Three Albums Back on Vinyl This October

Dinosaur Jr. at the Anti-Club, Hollywood, CA, 1987 by Joseph Henderson

By now you know the story: J Mascis, Lou Barlow, & Patrick “Murph” Murphy, meet in Amherst, MA. J, Lou & Murph start a band. Said band goes on to rip through the musical landscape and prove to be the genesis of the “alternative rock” archetype.

Over the last 25+ years, Dinosaur Jr. have influenced a countless number of bands, both peers and protégés, by wailing their classic union of melodic bass, seething drums, virtuosic guitar shredding and listless vocal delivery through the iconic Marshall stacks.

Jagjaguwar is honored to reissue the band’s first three albums on vinyl, Dinosaur, You’re Living All Over Me and Bug, on October 4th, 2011. Originally released on the venerable Homestead and SST labels in the 1980’s, the reissues stay true to form and include the cardinal track lists.

Dinosaur Jr. recently completed a sold-out tour playing Bug in its entirety, and the acclaimed 33 1/3 book series by Continuum released Nick Attfield’s book about You’re Living All Over Me this summer.
