DIGITAL DINOSAURS -Extinction: 1979-1982 CD (Messthetics #207)
The 'Dinosaurs were leading figures in the cassette-swapping world of turn-of-the-decade D.I.Y. "Extinction" is selected by the band from their seven+? cassette releases, but they appeared on countless collections as well. Here's "Red Fire Engine" and several other utterly splendid DIY romps, but there's also a fistful of really pretty ballads, plus a fair chunk of material where we find the 'Dinosaurs expertly and effortlessly channelling the spirit of the late, great Bonzo Dog (Doo-Dah) Band. $9.00
