Shrew Music & Cult
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

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 Goldsmiths Tavern, New Cross in 1987.
Brief bright stars in the popsical fermament - sorely missed. "
(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
...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."

1 liter of Mr. Pibb 1 box of Good N' Plenty (movie size)
10 Circus peanuts
1 medium sized box of sugar cubes (20 oz.)
1 pkg. of Pez (or 2, or 3, and so on)

1 wind-up shrew 1 blender
Throw all ingredients except the wind-up shrew into the blender, puree

Wind up the shrew and throw it in, take a sip and hope you don't pass out
from too much sugar intake.
