The Piltdown Men – The Artist

The Piltdown Men were a rock and roll instrumental studio group from Hollywood, California, featuring two lead saxophones. They were the brainchild of Ed Cobb and pianist Lincoln Mayorga of the Four Preps, and their records were issued on the Capitol label. Their name was inspired by the  Piltdown Man hoax which was a paleoanthropological hoax in which bone fragments were presented as the fossilised remains of a previously unknown early human.

Brontosaurus Stomp – The Song

Brontosaurus Stomp is an instrumental song written by Mayorga and Cobb of the Piltdown Men. It featured saxophonists Scott Gordon and Jackie Kelso, guitarist Bob Bain, bassist Tommy Tedesco, drummer Alan Brenmanen, and Mayorga on piano. It was one of their best known hits even though Brontosaurus Stomp was originally released as the B-side of “McDonald’s Cave” (based on “Old McDonald Had a Farm”). 

The Brontosaurus Dinosaur – The Shape

Modelled into the  silhouette of a brontosaurus dinosaur. Brontosaurus meaning “thunder lizard” from Greek “thunder” and, sauros “lizard” is a genus of gigantic quadruped sauropod dinosaurs. Brontosaurus had a long, thin neck and a small head adapted for a herbivorous lifestyle; a bulky, heavy torso; and a long, whip-like tail. The various species lived during the Late Jurassic epoch in the Morrison Formation of what is now North America, and were extinct by the end of the Jurassic. Adult individuals of Brontosaurus are estimated to have weighed up to 15 tonnes and measured up to 22 metres (72 ft) long. As the archetypal sauropod, Brontosaurus is one of the best-known dinosaurs and has been featured in film, advertising, and postage stamps, as well as many other types of media.
