Dinosaur Jr. Reissuing ‘Bug’ Cassette

    Dinosaur Jr. has some special plans in store for their upcoming tour, during which they will be playing 1988’s Bug in its entirety. The guys are also reissuing the album on cassette. Yeah, that’s right. On cassette. This is a first for Dino Jr. and probably a majority of bands out there because, let’s be real, who reissues albums on tape? Anyway, there have only been 250 cassettes made — and they’re purple! — with half of them being sold online at Joyful Noise Recordings. The others will appear at merch tables throughout the band’s upcoming jaunt.
