    Unforgettable, really. First heard of them when I was in junior high in Oklahoma... from an OU frat boy recounting a wild party down in Dallas or Austin where they played... later find out that Thomas Pynchon has a thing for Roky Erickson...

    Maybe Samuel Delany was into them too, as a subplot in Dhalgren involves a deadly elevator shaft...

    Aye. odd choice for a band name.

    After all these years, still have no idea what it means if, like Dylan's book, "Tarantula", anything whatsoever.




    ....

    Back to Legendary Pink DOTS: It shouldn't be confusing if you are reminded of the drop of LSD put on pink blotters.

    Anyways...you lot must be sleepy or just don't care: no one pointed out that Legendary Pink Wotsits are neither prog nor psych and thus invalid to this thread.

    This band were on the undercard when The Rolling Stones played in Hyde Park in June 1969 but little seemed to be heard from them thereafter. Perhaps calling themselves Screw didn't help...

    I know you requested prog, but we had a punk band around here with the worst name I've heard: Diarrhea Planet.

    An embryonic version of Pink Floyd were known briefly as Leonard's Lodgers - probably just as well they moved on.
