Shrew Music & Cult Movie
A few bands have chosen shrews to be patrons of their names... Whether their music is shrew or not, I leave up to the audience...


A band from Pittsburgh, PA.

According to one of the band members, Triple D, the group name was chosen because "you can feel the old English heritage in a word that is so short and yet forceful..."

"...Shrew is a band of musical veterans that jam once a week or so. We play in lots of different styles, with frequent guest artists and theme pieces. What we do is record these jams, mix them down to digital stereo, cut out a couple of representative "songs" from the session, and publish these songs to the site. It is sort of the bleeding edge of music media distribution - and here we are on it!"

The Shrew Kings:
From: Sylvie Cordier <>
"Records certainly are available - 2 singles (Dr Love/ Shrew Kings play Brecht), 1 12" (Green eyed Kid) and a mini album (Sad but True). All out on Thin Sliced Records. Sessions for Radio One and Janice Long record of the week (Shrew Kings play Brecht) Band included ex founding member of other rocking songsters King Kurt. Once described as Stan Getz meets Stan Ogden. Band were a musical melange (melee?) of styles, ranging from the Velvets, through Gene Vincent to Jacques Brel. Virtuosos they may not have been, sexy they certainly were - well kind of... Inaugural performance at the Duma cabaret in Birmingham in 1983 farewell show in the Goldsmiths Tavern, New Cross in 1987.

Brief bright stars in the popsical fermament - sorely missed. "
The (Attack of the ) Killer Shrews (The Movie)

THE KILLER SHREWS (1959) James Best, Ingrid Goulde, Gordon Mclendon, Ken Curtis. "And the shrew devours everything. "Flesh, bones, marrow...everything." This movie's what low budget, '50s sci-fi was supposed to be all about. Research scientists develop a breed of giant, carnivorous shrews that terrorize a group of people on a small island off the coast of Texas. Colorful performances with Curtis playing a wonderful coward.

...The characters never really do anything except stand around and drink, then they get killed by dogs with wax teeth wearing bath mats. And of course, the hero is James Best (who can't play Dixieland Jazz), later famous as Rosco P. Coltraine on the Dukes of Hazzard.

"Any unusual experiment can produce unusual results."
