First issued in 2002 only in the States and Australia, ‘Ear Bleeding Country’ is the only career-spanning compilation of Dinosaur Jr.

Dinosaur Jr. are one of the most successful and influential alternative guitar bands from America, and fronted by laconic singer/guitarist J. Mascis, they’ve enjoyed global success and inspired generations, from Grunge onwards.

The first six tracks are drawn from the band’s early career in the 1980s, when they recorded for independent labels like Homestead and SST. Among them are the classic single ‘Freak Scene’ and the follow- up cover of The Cure’s ‘Just Like Heaven’.

Most of the compilation samples the best of Dinosaur Jr.’s output after signing with Warner Bros in 1990, including hit singles such as ‘The Wagon’, ‘Whatever’s Cool With Me’, ‘Out There’, ‘Start Choppin’ and ‘Feel The Pain’.

‘Ear Bleeding Country’ ends with ‘Where’d You Go’, a track by J. Mascis’ post-Dinosaur Jr. band The Fog.
