Editorial Reviews

Pianosaurus is the first all-toy instrument band. From New York, this three-piece ensemble plays a variety of catchy, rock-oriented songs on an assortment of toy instruments, all of which are readily available in toy stores nationwide. The instruments, that is. Must be heard! This 1987 album was produced by Peter Holsapple.

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

let me say i have never heard of this band until two weeks ago, and let me say i have been pleasantly surprised. theyhave the charm and wit of jonathan richman, and a playful way of music much like the elephant 6 bands. the songs here are a whole lot of fun and charming.... i heard that they had another album in the can after this one that showed a progression in their music, too bad alex had to skip town and leave it in record limbo, i hope someday their follow-up will be ressurected and pianosaurus can be realized for the ididot savant genius. find this album!

Real fun, real music, real toys. Plinking piano, plastic guitar, loving renditions of "The Letter" and "Memphis". Great original music too. You'll love "Love is a Two-Way Street" and all the rest. I first heard this album in '87 and it's still one of my faves.

The best way to describe this band's sound is to say that their overall result is like NRBQ only with toys. That's to say, old fashioned white, southern R&B with the professional instruments replaced by toy ones. Excellent song selection here that mixes originals with covers and goes from bubble gummy love songs, to tributes to their neighborhood. There's a very positive feel to all of the songs and the lead singer's geeky sensibilities shine straight through. It's too bad that they still haven't released their second album 'Back To School.'
