In the mid-’80s, Dinosaur Jr. took the pre-historic concept of a bombastic power trio and gave it new life and an alternative edge, but guitarist J Mascis and bassist Lou Barlow started clawing at each other pretty quickly. After three albums, Mascis engineered a silent coup, telling Barlow the band was breaking up but then going on an Australian tour with a replacement. Barlow was wounded by the betrayal but it proved to be a great source of inspiration; many of his subsequent project Sebadoh’s songs were inspired by the situation, with Barlow singing to Mascis, “Your big head has that more room to grow. A glory I will never know.” Barlow rejoined Dinosaur Jr. in 2005.
