about

Jurassic is Thecodontion’s second effort. As the title would suggest, it is a concept EP about four prehistoric creatures that lived in the Jurassic period: Side A is about two pterosaurs (the so-called ‘flying reptiles’ like such as pterodactyls), while Side B is about two sauropods (literally ‘lizard-footed’, large dinosaurs with long necks, small heads, thick legs, and long tails).
The pterosaur on the cover is a Rhamphorhynchus muensteri.

Co-released by Wooaaargh (DE), Xenoglossy Productions (IT) and Glossolalia Records (US).
