Dinosaur Jr. 'Bug' Cassette Reissue
Indie godfathers Dinosaur Jr. have announced the reissue of their classic 1988 album Bug on cassette via Joyful Noise Recordings. Slated for release on June 21, the cassette reissue coincides with the band's 15-date US/European tour in which Bug will be performed live in its entirety.
Originally released on cassette in 1988 via the legendary SST label, this is the first ever reissue of a Dinosaur Jr. album on its original cassette format.
Most likely the first time an album was reissued on cassette ever! (Side note, for a while in Chicago my DJ name was Re:Issue.)
Available in extremely limited quantities, the Bug cassette is limited only 250 hand-numbered copies, on high-quality purple tapes, with 8 panel original artwork.
ug cassettes can be ordered for $12 here, apparently, but at time of post no buy links were available.
