Dinosaur Jr prop up Playboy mansion

It's a bit disappointing that Dinosaur Jr have done their bit to prop up Playboy by doing something for Playboy.com. It's part of the site's bid to find something that it can charge for, what with so much porn being available for free on the net.

At least they're treating the whole procedure with only half an arse - the idea is for bands to cover other bands, and Dinosaur Jr are offering Just Like Heaven. In other words, the same bloody song they covered two decades ago.

In other words, it's like this exclusive:

I'm glad I'm not the only one to be disappointed when good artists do this sort of thing. Apparently a chapter from Nabokov's last unfinished novel is going to appear in Playboy before the book's publication this autumn, and that's almost enough to put me off reading it. Not that it's Nabokov's fault, of course.

I haven't read Playboy regularly since the 80s but the "I only read it for the articles" cliche had some veracity to it. If you want airburshed soft porn there's much better elsewhere, but where else would you get 30-odd pages of interview with John and Yoko, or the Sandinista leaders, or Watergate bad boy G. Gordon Liddy? The sooner they get rid of the birds completely and concentrate on what they do well the sooner the public's ignorance of what's actually inside the mag will improve.

Having said that, I've never listened to Dinosaur Jr. so I'm not best informed.
