Pygmy Shrews "The Egyptian" LP

Image of Pygmy Shrews "The Egyptian" LP


Blown-out scuzzers from members of Drunkdriver, The Men, Zs, Hubble, Cutter, the Fugue, Queening, Neon King Kong, Little Women etc. Way limited on green wax and a cameo by Apollo Liftoff(Vaz, Hammerhead, Gas War) to boot.

"Pygmy Shrews are sort of like some wounded Sikorsky chopper on a doomed final mission, chugging across debris-filled skies in search of a final way out, or howbout similar to some kind of post-apocalyptic wheeled conveyance, part lawn tractor, part tiller, all menace and powered by some greasy substance you don’t want to even consider, but running somehow, and fast, albeit on the verge of total failure and collapse. Howabout it? This Brooklyn group has an aggressive, fatalistic task at their capable hands: to add a musical vocabulary to feelings like desolation, despair and distrust. If the emotion starts with a “d,” it might be applicable, and this band might make appropriate sounds for it." - Wantage(the fine folks responsible)

These 10 songs were recorded by Colin Marston (Krallice, Behold the Arctopus) in his Queens, NY dungeon.
