Los Angeles-based Thumpasaurus are a gang of five young American musicians taking hugely divergent influences and channelling them into something uniquely Thumpasaurian.
Thumpasaurus offer up their own unique punk/funk stew wherein, hidden in plain sight and sound, you’ll find traces of Zappa, Beefheart, James Chance, Funkadelic/Parliament, Morphine, Devo, Talking Heads and Prince, as well as some rocking heavy metal, free jazz, musical theatre and even some light opera references thrown in for good measure.
2018 saw the band record an EP with legendary house producer, Dirtybird’s Justin Jay. Consisting primarily of remixed Thump songs, the EP was premiered by Annie Mack on BBC Radio 1.The band released their self-produced debut album, The Book Of Thump, in 2019. Thumpasaurus released a second album 'Thumpaverse' in 2021.
