Pianosaurus

Pianosaurus is the first all toy instrument band. Yes, you read correctly.

PianosaurusThis is like nothing you ever heard before. First of all, it's hard to get toy instruments to sound good period, let alone get several together and use them in a band. Yet somehow, someway, it all comes together.

Here's a bit of band history. Their only official release is Groovy Neighborhood.

Highlights include the utterly charming Love Is a Two-Way Street and the easygoing Downtown. Also, don't overlook Thriftshoppin', and Memphis (a great rendition of the Chuck Berry classic).

I'd like to watch these guys play. That'd be entertaining.

Oh, this is too funny. Where do you find this stuff?

I can just picture them scrunched into tiny, little chairs playing their elfin instruments.

I first heard of them in college, back in the late 80's. We had a radio station that played alternative music and it opened up a whole new world for me. To this day, I have CD's from musicians I never would have heard about otherwise. Lemme know if you get a chance to hear them.
