    Hi, new here. Got into Dinosaur around Bug time while I was at school. Worked my way backwards to You’re Living All Over Me and forward through Green Mind. Saw them live at Reading (1991?) and Rollercoaster Tour around the same time. Followed everything until mysteriously losing track of them around Hand It Over. Then saw them live again 2005 in London and rediscovered it all over again. Having a good time going back through all the ltd editon 10" singles, promos, live sessions etc all over again.

    Hi!

    Not familiar with Bardo Pond. I did used to have a Bevis Frond album on the b-side of the tape of Bug that I kept in the car. Their name rhymes. Does that count?

    Going to look up Bardo Pond.

    Bardo Pond are a modern psychedelic rock band.Think if you could put Black Sabbath and Sonic Youth together and you sorta got their sound.

    Polvo were very underated yes. they did another album later on that wasn’t so good though. Todays Active Lifestlys and Corcrane Secret were both good though. I thought I read about them reforming recently?

    Swirlies similar. Started great. First album / EP with Tall ships and Blondertongue were good, then they got a bit tamer and lost it a bit.

    Yerself Is Steam is definatley the Mercury Rev Album.

    Early Flaming Lips did some amazing stuff too. Especially out-takes, b-sides and radio sessions etc.

    Polvo did reunite recently I believe.Cor Crane Secret was a little diffuse compared to Today`s Active.The Celebrate The New Dark Age ep was another fine effort.
    The Swirlies` Glittering Salons album was good.I lost track of them there.Do you like the Drop Nineteens and Lenola?The Drop 19`s were from Boston too so a Swirlies comparison was obvious.Lenola were from New Jersey,they took on a more Flaming Lips sound later on but the early records The Swirlies and MBV were more their thing.
    I have`nt exlpored much early Flaming Lips.

    I remember buying Polvo’s "Exploded Drawing" album and being very unimpressed. maybe I should dig it out though and give it another chance.

    Drop Nineteens I remember and used to like some of but haven’t heard for years. There was a summer when Winona was on MTV all the time. A bit like the summer where MTV seemed to play Smashing Pumkins every other video. Another band I still like a lot up to a certain point. Liked a couple of tracks after Siamese Dream but not a lot. Gish and Siamese dream were, and still are amazing though. Not a fan of Billy Corgan as a person though.

    I’ll look up some Lenola and give them a listen.

    Lenola filmed one video and youtube has it:

    The first Lenola album called The Last Ten Feet Of The Suicidal Mile is a good record.Might be hard to find these days.
    i never got into the Pumpkins because of Corgan.His voice for one and his personality too.Maybe I should get over it.
    Polvo got weirder on later records which is`nt always a good thing
    Winona is the best Drop 19`s song.Delaware is a good album.Their cover of Madonna`s Angel is awesome
