J Mascis grilled by 10-year-old fan – watch

Dinosaur Jr member chats about music and zombies with young music fan

J Mascis has opened up in a new interview with a 10-year-old fan.

The interview, which can be seen below, is part of the Little Punk People series and sees Mascis – renowned for being less than enthusiastic with journalists – discuss his family, zombies, and his favourite childhood records with 10-year-old Elliott.

Masics recently released his new solo album ‘Tied To A Star’. The 10-track LP was produced by the Dinosaur Jr frontman himself and came out in August on Sub Pop. It is the follow-up to his 2011 solo debut ‘Several Shades Of Why’.

Cat Power guests on the album, as does Ken Maiuri of Young@Heart Chorus, Pall Jenkins of The Black Heart Procession and Mark Mulcahy of Miracle Legion.

J Mascis recently appeared with the surviving members of Nirvana following their Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction at an intimate show in Brooklyn’s tiny Saint Vitus bar. He joined the band for renditions of Nirvana’s ‘Drain You’, ‘Pennyroyal Tea’ and ‘School’. St Vincent/Annie Clark, Joan Jett, Kim Gordon and Deer Tick’s John McCauley also fronted the band during the special gig this April.
