A thread inspired by my current infatuation with this:
A good song, immeasurably improved by J’s guitar scrawls.
Reminded me of his showstopping contribution to this track from Buffalo Tom’s debut album:
Pretty sure there must be dozens of other examples, but none spring to mind. Help me out please.
WHY ARE YOUUUUU SITTING THEREEEE
Apparently Kim and Kelley didn’t ask J to do this, he just sent back the tapes with his singing on it and they put it out anyway!

That sasami song the first time i heard it, it was so familiar sounding that i was sure it was a cover. This is not a criticism - some songs are just like that.
Same goes for this one
Still not entirely convinced it is not a cover.
If you haven’t heard it this is a very good album (featuring J Mascis) by Mike Johnson (who replaced Lou Barlow on bass in Dinosaur Jr).
I can’t stand J’s voice but he’s perfect for this.
Heard a few of these and then about forgot them, but most are new to me. Such an excellent guitarist. I could live without a new Dinosaur Jr record if he kept up a steady rate of guest spots like these.
Might have to get a playlist going…
Hadn’t thought about this one in years.
Petition to change thread title to “remember when J Mascis kept ripping killer solos for established bands over the last few decades”
That was terrible in all fairness. That set put me off BSS for good.
