Classic edition of the Dinosaur Jr. book

Signature edition

Limited to 500 signed, numbered box sets

Each set contains two volumes and is signed by J, Lou and Murph. It also includes a limited run of new fine art prints unique to the set.

Each set is presented in a clamshell box.

The volumes

Volume 1 is a special, limited edition of the Classic edition book, each signed by J, Lou and Murph.

Volume 2 is a facsimile edition of tour diaries written in 1987 and 1988 by close friend and ‘worst roadie in the world’, Jon Fetler. He not only kept a brilliant, revealing and hugely entertaining diary while on tour with Dinosaur, but also took a lot of candid and unposed, behind the scenes photographs.

The diaries capture a crucial period in the band’s development, and had not been seen or read–even by the band–until the creation of this book.

The prints

The set contains fine art prints of original Dino artwork: one by Maura Jasper and one by J Mascis.

The prints are unique to the set, and printed on fine art paper using archival ink to guard against fading.

They are ready for mounting and display straight out of the box.

"One early frontrunner, Daphne Oram, was a contemporary and colleague of Delia Derbyshire. Oram, writes Allan, “noodled with modular machines at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in its early days, before the studio created the seminal Doctor Who theme” (largely Derbyshire’s doing). That description doesn’t do her justice. Oram was in fact a co-founder of the hugely influential Radiophonic Workshop, and her work deserves, and has begun to receive, the kind of critical re-evaluation that Derbyshire has attained recently." http://www.openculture.com/2016/06/4-women-who-pioneered-electronic-music-daphne-oram-laurie-spiegel-eliane-radigue-pauline-oliveros.html

My small city is still coming down from the elation of last month’s Moogfest, a three-day extravaganza of performances, workshops, seminars, films, and other activities relating to music made by the synthesizers designed and influenced by Robert Moog.

Rocket 88 shared Pink Floyd's photo.

On this day, 48 years ago, Pink Floyd released their second album, A Saucerful of Secrets. Sporting a cover design by Hipgnosis - their first for the band - the album included a track which featured David Gilmour as well as Syd Barrett, the only track to do so. Do you know which one they both play on though?
