J Mascis
It makes perfect sense that I was asked to write a bio for J Mascis. Let's face it, he and I have a long history. It all started the first time I saw him live. It was New York City. I don't remember when or where, but I think he was walking around. I was probably walking around, too. The second time was also in New Yourk, at a Mexican restaurant in the East Village (the one that takes credit cards now, but didn't used to). Years later I actually met him at the SXSW festival through a friend who works at Sub Pop. I guess that meeting went well, because when that friend from Sub Pop got married, she sat me at the same table as J. Sound unbelievable? I suggest you look at the picture below. Now keep staring at the picture until August 26th. That's when J's new acoustic album Tied to a Star comes out on Sub Pop Records. It features appearances by Ken Maiuri, Pall Jenkins, Mark Mulcahy, and Chan Marshall. Had I been in the area, I'm sure I would've been asked to play on it, too. - Todd Barry

J Mascis' Tied to a Star, the follow up to his acclaimed Sub Pop debut Several Shades of Why, will be available on CD/LP/DL August 25th in Europe and August 26th in North America. The album, led by the songs "Every Morning" and "Wide Awake," was recorded and produced by Mascis and mixed by John Agnello at Bisquiteen in Amherst, MA. Tied to a Star also features guest appearances from musicians Ken Maiuri (Young@Heart Chorus), Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession), Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion) and Chan Marshall (Cat Power).
