The Dinosaurs!
"It Might Be Rose/Rock n' Roll Moron"

Here is both sides of The Dinosaurs' 1979 release - a classic slab of St. Louis, MO indie/DIY rock featuring the talents of local legend Bob Reuter, whose musical exploits date from the 1960's to the present day (I originally became familiar with the b-side via Bob playing it acoustically at a local open mic night in recent years).

I've heard that this single has become highly collectible in certain circles, but get this - Mr. Reuter hisself is sitting on quite a few unplayed, unsold copies. He is also facing ill health and staggering medical bills. So now that you've heard the music for free, why not contact Bob and offer him good money for a copy? Let outrageous collector prices directly support the artist for a change!

Bob Reuter hosts the truly excellent radio show "Bob's Scratchy Records" (blues, r&b, rockabilly, punk, garage rock, anything that sounds good 'n' filthy) on KDHX 88.1 FM in St. Louis, with webcasting available 'round the globe at http://www.kdhx.org, so tune in and get in touch with the original rock n' roll moron!

P.S. If you offer Bob a pittance only to turn around and sell the single for an obscene profit, my friend Shane will come over to your house and scream at you. And he can be loud.
