Purple Dino – Demosaurus

Purple Dino – Demosaurus
Self released – 2013
Rock, Stoner, Desert
Rated: ***

Stomping through the Jurassic age holding his breath Jimmy counted and counted and counted until he turned purple. None of his friends told him to stop counting cause they had all gone extinct. At that justifiable point Jimmy sadly dropped his shoulders and thought to him self that he was a damn lonely Tyrannosaurus Rex. Errr… We’re not hear to tell long boring and very elaborate stories about lonely dinosaurs but to tell tall tales of an exciting foursome called Purple Dino hailing from the beautiful country of Greece. On their first three-track demo they produce heavy desert rock that isn’t heard all that much anymore. It has a steady rhythm that slows to a trucking speed and a bluesy dry heat feel that makes the sound shimmer and glisten. Recorded at home with very basic equipment they apparently have a wizard among them that can polish anything for it sounds damn good, hot and steamy. Apart from the occasional little hiccup; but that just adds to the charm. Powerful, cumbersome and groovy!
