Home / Biography / Pianosaurus


A delightful curiosity through the serene ’80s, Pianosaurus played juvenile pop music on — what else? — rinky-dink pianos, plastic material horns, and a complete selection of children’s playthings. Bandmates Alex Garvin, Bianca “Flystrip” Miller, and Steve Dansiger emerged together in NY State in the first ’80s, and self-released their initial two albums, both documented live and released in 1985. 2 yrs later, Rounder Information released Pianosaurus’ correct debut, Groovy Community, made by Peter Holsapple (from the db’s) and offering addresses of Chuck Berry and John Lee Hooker. In 1988, the trio made an appearance in Francis Ford Coppola’s NY Stories, guesting over the soundtrack aswell, and were prepared to launch their second recording, Back to College, when Garvin remaining the music group (evidently under mental stress). Tragically, the LP continues to be unissued.
